Trip description

We will take the bus to Tavelsjö to start our hike on the Tavelsjö hiking trail. After a half-day hike we will start building our bivouacs where we will camp for the night. In the evening we will share a nice dinner over the open fire. Sunday morning will begin with a good breakfast before we hike back to the bus. Here you can choose if you want to stay on After Hike at Sundlingska Gården or if you want to go back home to Umeå.

This tour is an activity organized by IKSU frilufts in collaboration with VisitUmeå during the event and hiking weekend “Hajka”.
