STORÅS - JENNYLUND
Refreshing mountain air is present throughout this entire route and it contributes to a peaceful state of mind. It’s easy to feel at home here, and feel at home- you should. And having this route close to Gothenburg is certainly a bonus and a treat if you’re planning on travelling to and from the city. Vättefjäll is the home of large mountains, deep forests, and lakes. If you’re looking to relax and calm your mind from the stress of life, this route will do just that. It’s easy on the feet and easier on the mind.
In the west, Vättefjäll borders the valley of Göta River. In the southwest it borders Rannebergen and Lövgärdet. Moreover, to the south of the valley it borders Lärjeån. To the north and east the forest borders both Ale and Lerum.
As mentioned above, wandering this route adds to a sense of calm. However, there are also calming activities to do along the route. For example, for canoeists there are canoes you can use for a day or two. If canoeing’s not for you, maybe fishing is? You are free to fish in the various lakes around the area. If you want to fish however, a fishing license is required. Furthermore, there are plenty of windbreaks around the area so if you want to rest or stay the night in the wild, the opportunity is here! You may connect to this route via Storån/Angered to the south or from Jennylund/Bohus in the north. Whatever you do, you will always be comfortable and calm walking this scenic route. Welcome to Vättlefjäll. Fun fact: Sweden has “allemansrätten” which means that Swedes are allowed to travel and camp on private ground as well as pick berries, mushrooms, and other plants.
