Joint hiking at a leisurely pace
Lilla Grötlunken is a joint walk at a leisurely pace after the evening meal, which often consisted of porridge with prunes. The summer tourists started off from the inn, Rågårdsviks Pensionat, which still forms the heart of Rågårdsvik. There are no signs, but not so many roads to choose from either. It is hard to get lost. You will always find your way back to Rågårdsviks Pensionat.
Walk along Asperanvägen up the hill and keep on walking till the road splits into two. When the road splits, you can walk straight ahead on the road that turns into gravel. A short distance it turns into a path along a low stone wall and shortly after turns into a gravel road again. When the gravel road reaches the main road into Rågårdsvik, turn right towards the village centre and you will end up at the inn again. Lilla Grötlunken is 2.6 km long.
