The Stages of Västra Vätterleden

Västra Vätterleden offers a delightful hike where you have the opportunity to experience beautiful, diverse, and historical surroundings. The entire trail consists of 195 kilometers of hiking divided into eight stages. The trail starts in Karlsborg municipality (stages 1-3), goes through Tibro, Hjo (stages 4-5), Tidaholm (stages 6-7), Habo (stage 7), and Mullsjö municipality (stage 8).


The trail follows flat sandy plateaus and hills with minimal elevation changes. Stage 7 is very easy to hike, and since the terrain lacks boulder moraine, it's also easy to make detours in the forested landscape. The trail follows well-marked paths and straightforward forest roads.


There is a wind shelter at Vitsjön, and there is also the option for alternative accommodation at the end of the stage at First Camp Hökensås, which is a year-round open campsite and cabin area.
