Hiking in Tyresta nature reserve and lunching with ducks

Tyresta nature reserve -wilderness without human involvement

I went hiking in Tyresta nature reserve, it was almost magic. I must say that we really was hit by the beauty of wilderness during our hike. In Tyresta Nationalpark we found 400 year old pine trees. Really cool and beautiful.

Dead tree in all its beauty, giving life to lots of insects:

We passed lakes and small ponds, also there was lots of wetland:

Amazing view in the old forest:

A magic place for lunch break! I had some ducks as company. They later became really interested in my food:

If you love outdoors life and hiking and are thinking about visiting Sweden: Tyresta is a nice place with total 50 km hiking trails. You can find simple walking paths to some harder “climbing”. The landscaper is variated with many wonderful views.

Sörmlandsleden; hiking trail with a view

Time for another stage on the hiking trail Sörmlandsleden

This time we chose a hiking trail close to the Baltic sea. We started walking close by the water from the small village “Nävekvarn”.

Then we came to some smaller climbs which we had to climb to be able to enjoy the amazing views from above.

The hiking trail are prepared with some fire places, seats and also some windshields. We did not need any windshield this day, but it was nice to take a break by the sea and have some food and to dive into the water:)

Time for dinner?

Our walk continued into the forest… I must say the first half, by the sea was the nicest stage of this hiking trail. But I think the forest are a calming and nice place to be so it was absolutely OK to go that way. There are always the possibility to turn back and walk the same way, but I am glad we did not. This way we where offered a great variation in views and experiences through our day.
