Trip description

We take the bus to Vindeln around 09.00. When we arrive, we begin our hike at Hotell Forsen, located at the northern end of Renforsen. We then follow the trail along the river, enjoying the impressive views of the rapids. The suspension bridge over the river offers a beautiful view of the rushing water. Along the way, there are many lovely rest spots, and we will stop to prepare our three-course lunch. After that, we head towards the southern end of Degerforsen. The hike ends back at Hotell Forsen, where we reflect on the day's experiences before taking the bus back to Umeå. We will return to Umeå by 16.00 at the latest.
