A private donation to Skaftö Öråd has made it possible to build a hiking trail to Vigerna. Welcome to walk on the wooden deck between two bathing areas overlooking the fairway and the archipelago.
Thanks to the association Skäddhålans Vänner and a number of donors, you can walk out of the harbour from Östra Kajen in Grundsund on the wooden deck along the rocky coastline all the way to the bathing area Skäddhålan. There is a changing cabin, a sun deck and a barbecue area. Along the walk there are several benches to sit on and several ladders to reach down to the water. The wooden deck to Skäddhålan is adapted for diasabled.
From Skäddhålan all the way to the bathing area at Vigerna, the beautiful Strandpromenaden continues, first with a steep staircase up along the rocky mountain, before winding further along the coastline. Along the way there are several benches to sit down for a rest, feel the salty wind or just admire the view of the archipelago. High up in the steep rock wall is a cave. Along the trail there are a couple of information signs about the landscape with further reading through QR codes.
Strandpromenaden ends at Vigerna, which is a popular bathing area. From there you can continue the road forward and at the next crossroads turn left onto the Munkevik hiking trail or walk up back towards Grundsund.
