Relaxed hiking tour along Ingegerdsleden from Stockholm to Uppsala.
- 5 Days / 4 Nights
- self guided
Take a first stroll through Sweden’s capital and explore some of the many sights and tourist attractions.
You start your tour with a short train ride (ca. 30 minutes) to Rosersberg. After two kilometres the first highlight is awaiting you: Rosersbergs slott. The beautiful palace was built from 1634-1638 and ranks among nine official Swedish royal palaces. Today it is a hotel and accommodates a museum and a Café. The hiking route leads beautifully along the banks of Lake Mälar to the next highlight: Steninge slott. Influenced by Italian architecture, the small baroque styled palace is very unique in Sweden. Today the palace is on private property, the lovely garden can however be visited. Restaurant Stenlådan right next to the palace offers tasty meals for a well deserved lunchtime. Afterwards you continue along hiking trails and forest roads to Sigtuna. The city was founded in 980 and is, together with Lund the oldest, still existing city in Sweden. The small town was an important administrative center in earlier times. A stroll through the main road with its small, typical Swedish houses from the 18th, 19th and 20th century is worth it, before you end your first hiking day with a sauna session and a delicious dinner in your hotel.
By public transport you reach Odensala with its kyrka in ca. 45 minutes. The church has been built stepwise from 1200 on and hosts impressive wall paintings from the 15th century. Afterwards you continue to Knivsta and Alsike, the church in Alsike is another highlight along the way. It is believed that the building with its gray tower has been built with inspiration from the impressive Marienkirche in Sigtuna. Shortly afterwards today’s hotel is already awaiting you, the mansion is beautifully located at Lake Mälar and welcomes you with a sauna, spa area and hotel restaurant.
Alsike - Uppsala
After a hearty breakfast your last tour is about to start - again with wonderful panoramic views onto Lake Mälar. The route leads through the nature reserve of Kungshamn-Morga, with some nice beach areas for a refreshing bath in the lake. Already from afar Uppsala appears just perceptible. Once you reach bridge Flottsundsbron you continue along Upplandsleden and river Fyrisån all the way to Uppsala, your goal of today and final destination of your holiday.
After breakfast your hiking tour ends. We are happy to extend your holiday with extra nights, to top your hiking holiday off with some more marvelous impressions. Uppsala, Sweden’s fourth-biggest town and today’s bishop’s see offers many places of interest. Worth-seeing is the cathedral, Uppsala palace with botanical gardens, Uppsala University with coin cabinet or the king graves of Gamla Uppsala (Old-Uppsala).
