Hiking package 3 days/2 nights

at Vårdnäs

This is a hiking package with two days of hiking and two overnight stays. You hike on your own (without a guide) on the Östgötaleden just south of Linköping. You choose how far you want to hike and at what pace. Why not try hiking the entire Rängen Runt of 45 kilometers divided into two day stages?! But you choose based on your level of ambition.

On the walk, you experience oak forests, winding country roads, you pass horse and cow pastures, a village here and there and also castles and manors' seats. This part of the Östgötaleden is very beautiful and interesting, but still far from crowded with hikers!

After the hikes, you enjoy good food and drink and a comfortable bed at Vårdnäs Stiftsgård.

How does a hiking experience with 2 days of hiking and 2 overnight stays work?

Day 1

You arrive in Vårdnäs in the morning on day 1. The earlier the better. You check in at the reception and leave the luggage you want to keep during the hike. At the reception you have the opportunity to ask any questions before your hike. At the reception, you will also receive your lunch package and coffee package with accompanying drink. Walk to the bus stop (about 20 minutes walk) and take the bus to the starting point of the hike. Click here for more information on taking the bus to the starting point. Often there are two morning tours and one afternoon tour.

If you have your own car (two cars are needed), you drive to the starting point. It takes between 10 and 20 minutes to drive to the starting points. When you have finished walking, you go and collect the car at the starting point with the help of the other car.

You hike the chosen route and eat the food sent with you and perhaps your own goodies packed in the pack.

You come back to Vårdnäs Stiftsgård on foot and go to the reception and take your luggage and get access to the room to relax or why not settle down in the lounge with a cooling or warming drink?

When evening comes, it is finally time for dinner. Should taste extra good after lovely hours in nature. After some food in the stomach, the private room and the comfortable bed beckon. Good night!

Day 2

Wake up to a new hiking day! Enjoy the breakfast. Pick up packed lunches and coffee packs at reception and pack them into your backpack. Take the bus/car to the starting point for the day. Hike the selected stage of the trail. In the afternoon/evening you arrive again at Vårdnäs on foot. In the evening, there will be a good dinner before it is time for bed. Why not play pool or darts before bed, or just sit and talk.

Day 3

Breakfast and "hang out" at Vårdnäs before check-out and journey home.
