4 of 5 stars 4.0 (see reviews)

Trail details

  • Length 5.8 km



Come and explore the beautiful island of Kärsön! The Kärsöleden trail is 5.8 km long and is only a 5-minute bus ride away from Brommaplan. This trail follows the southern shoreline of Kärsön and offers impressive views of Lake Mälaren and Drottningholm Palace. Along the way, you'll pass sheep pastures with ancient oaks, deciduous forests with unusual plants and carpets of bilberry under towering pine trees.

There are many nice swimming spots along the trail. Near Morgongåvan, on the south side of Kärsön, there is a covered picnic area with a fire pit next to the trail. The trail is hilly and steep in places, with uneven terrain.

At the information centre at Brostugan, you'll find a picnic area with picnic tables, as well as a wheelchair-accessible outdoor dry toilet. There is also a parking lot and swimming area.

Lovö nature reserve is managed by the National Property Board (Statens fastighetsverket, SFV).
