Hiking on Sörmlandsleden


The Sörmlandsleden is a winding system of hiking trails that includes approximately 1,000 kilometers of groomed trails in Södermanland. Among the towns that the trail passes are Södertälje, Trosa, Nyköping, Stavsjö, Katrineholm, Hälleforsnäs, Malmköping and Järna. Stages 12 and 13 of the Sörmlandsleden trail are adjacent to Myssjö gård.

So why not combine a hike with a unique overnight stay or guided raft tour with us?

Plan your hike
By becoming a member of the Sörmlandsledens förening, you support the work of keeping the trails open and get access to detailed maps of all stages.

Tips 1!
Take public transport from Stockholm to Mölnbo, Järna or Gnesta. Hike on the Sörmlandsleden and spend the night with us at Myssjö. Walk a longer stage to the center of Nykvarn and take the long-distance train back to Stockholm. Alternatively, walk back to Mölnbo, Järna or Gnesta or pre-book a Sverigetaxi that drives to Mölnbo or Gnesta for around SEK 500.

Tips 2!
Surprise someone and hike one of the stages of the Sörmlandsleden and be picked up in Yngsviken with a set table on a raft after a hiking trip. Take a raft on Lake Yngern and end the evening with an overnight stay with us. Get in touch with us, and we'll put together a personal surprise together.

Visit Envätten nature reserve

The Stora Envätten nature reserve borders the forests in Yngern catchment area. Here there is old forest with many unusual mushrooms, fire-affected forest with unusual insects, several nice forest lakes and mountains with a view. Beneath the surface in Stora Envättern, you have the opportunity to see all the life that lives there, as the viewing depth is great. Feel free to grill at one of the nature reserve's built-in fireplaces.

To think about when you are staying in the area
When you pick mushrooms, fish, swim, paddle, take clean drinking water or simply enjoy the nature of the Yngern area, you are using so-called ecosystem services. The services are not a matter of course, but are dependent on how humans affect nature. The young's unique water quality and teeming with life are very sensitive to negative impacts and many who live around the lake use the water as drinking water. Within the catchment area, all water flows in the direction of the lake.

You should especially think about this in the  area:

  • use as little detergent and cleaning agents as possible.
  • use phosphorus-free detergents
  • do not drive a boat too close to nesting ospreys or gannets
  • do not move wet fishing gear, boats, canoes or anything else that may mean unwanted species are spread between the lakes. Therefore, make sure that boats and equipment have dried properly before they are moved between the lakes.
