Description

Section 16, perhaps the most beautiful part of The Uppland Trail, begins next to River Dalälven in Marma. It goes through easy-to-walk, sandy areas along the River Dalälven, and ends by the tourist hotel in Älvkarleby.
From Marma, you’ll follow the water to a bird tower with a view of Lake Storfjärden. Then, the trail leaves the shores of River Dalälven for a while, finding its way up, past Ambricka, to then return to the rushing River Lanforsen. Here, River Dalälven is forced into a narrow furrow. Just north of the river, nature reserve Gropholmarna begins. In places, the beach is several metres high, sloping down steeply towards the river. There are many nice rest spots, one with a wind shelter.

Once in Älvkarleby, you’ll reach the end of the Section via the island of Laxön. When crossing the bridges, you’ll see the last waterfall of River Dalälven, Älvkarlebyfallet, in three parts. In Älvkarleby, you’ll find a shop, hostel, hotel, cafes and restaurants.

Difficulty level: Medium, mostly on easy-to-walk paths.
