Säbyleden - Hikingtrail
Through nature reserves and among abundant nature and 18th-century history, a light hiking trail winds its way. At the far end of the reserve, hike across the islands that lead the way to a stone cottage where you can sit down and enjoy the views and tranquility.
The Säbyleden trail runs through the nature reserves Breviks Kile and Säby Kile. It runs through open landscapes, pastures and woodlands, on paths and roads, through Knutstången all the way to Säby island where it ends at the old stone cottage. Just beyond the stone cottage, there is a giant's cauldron. Säby island consists of two islands with a narrow neck of land in between, where the trail runs along an old agricultural road across the islands and where cows graze during summer.
