There are not much who can out beat the walkabout along the riffs between Hunnebostrand and Ulebergshamn.

Soteleden The trek!

Our community is blessed with 70 km of walking treks that are well displayed. These treks will show you all, amazing costal line, the former stonemasonry and small farmer lots.
One of the connections points starts just 50 met from our Hostel and leads into the big crack named Hunnebo Klyfta and goes all the way to the top of the hill, and then it is your choice where to go next... the link below shows it all..



The open ocean to the west, the amazing nature of Ramsvik, an reservation area whom stays out from the rest. This is a must for the trekker or for those who can walk.
The area is well preserved and shows hundreds of spices whom are rare even in Sweden.
There are an "walk bridge" over to the island Tryggö where an old Viking graveyard, King Tryggve, and an hilltop whom shows greater views in various directions. Here you also will find the canal, Sotekanalen, whom is half natural and half man made.

This canal is mostly spoken of as the "highway for ships"!




You can go here either by bus, by bicycle or by your car. The walk along bridge is one of Scandinavia's most know tourist places. Here you will find whatever you want to buy, and do not be surprised if you would find your fellow man from your own country.

During the "hot" season there are thousands of visitors daily, off season it is an calm walk and show for the eye.
