The trekking will take place in the forests connected to the camp site and it is always possible to take longer routes if you are a fast trekker or perhaps a shortcut if you are trekking with younger children.
On the last day the trekking path will pass “Bexells talande stenar”, the speaking stones of Bexell, cliffs and stones left with proverbs or short stories. It was in the 19th century that the estate owner Bexell let some stonemasons cut the stones into an amazing library in the middle of the forest.
When I’m out trekking, I love to bring good food and I’m happy to bring some extra weigh just to make sure I get what I want and what I like. An afternoon coffee with cake will for sure be part of my packing. Outmeals who are the organizers of this trek have a great range of food for all tastes and many types of allergies. This is a good chance to try some new flavours even though I have my personal favourites (Chicken Masaman soft can and the freeze-dried Chicken with rice and asparagus). For a weekend like this my choice is the soft cans heated with chemical heaters. The consistence of the food is perfect, big chunks of meat, fish or vegetables and the taste is really delicious. I often bring the soft cans when I’m travelling, so easy to prepare and the best part is the heating process, it can be made anywhere!
Whether you decide to spend your day with running shoes or with trekking boots the evenings are spent together at the camp site, enjoying good food and great company. I think that this social part of the event is one of the main reasons for people coming back yearly!
