Björkö-Panike hiking trail
The hiking trail of Björkö-Panike is about 13 km long and it is located mainly on the island of Slåttskär, just in the heart of the World Heritage area. Along the trail, you will experience the calmness of the archipelago and see the signs of the land uplift; moraine ridges and closed sea bays. Sheep graze in the island during the summer, just like back in the old days.
To reach the trail, you will need boat transportation over the sounds, either from the village of Panike or from the village of Björköby. From Björköby, the boat transportation can leave either from the fishing harbour of Svedjehamn or from Långgrund’s campfire site, where you walk along a trail from Svedjehamn’s parking area (about 3,5 km).
The book-in-advance boat transportation costs about 150 €, so it might be a good idea to go with a small group. You can choose whether you hike the trail from one end to the another, or whether you hike back to you starting point; Björkö or Panike. The second option doubles the kilometres. See the businesses offering the boat transportation here.
