You are just outside Bromolla, so you are in Sweden. But it feels like you are traveling the world when walking the trail Näsumaviksleden. You will hike through the Swedish landscapes with open fields and horses. You will also walk into a tropical forest, the Amazon and the Everglades. All in 3,5 kilometers.

The hiking trail is not that difficult to walk however, you can’t access it by wheelchair (except for some parts of the trail). There are parts that take you through some open landscapes and paddocks with horses. There are parts where you can even come so close to the horses that you can pet them and then there are the parts where you feel like you are no longer in Sweden.
This is the place where dinosaurs roamed the earth 80 million years ago. And you need to have that in mind while walking here. Some of the trees were making squeaking sounds and in my imagination that sound turned into the sound of dinosaurs. And you can easily let your mind wander because the trail is well marked and easy to follow!
From Sweden to the Amazon and Everglades
The trail takes off into the forest. Due to the swamps inside the “Amazon” there the humidity is so high that you get the real tropical feeling. Well at least during the summer when it’s warm and the sun is out. We got the feeling that we entered the Amazon. And in all honesty, I would not have been surprised if I would’ve found a black mamba….. Ok so we did see a snake and it was a deadly one … to some animals. It was a Swedish Vipera berus (not dangerous to humans but venomous). It did scare the crap out of Mini and he claimed to have been attacked. Not true but it sure would make a better story.
After a while – walking on a wooden walkway we reached something that looked like it was taken right out of Everglades in Florida. The water got deeper and muddier and I could almost see the eyes of the alligators while walking.
Eating berries along the way
So I’m not that familiar with the different kind of berries that you can eat. But I do know my wild raspberries and wild strawberries. Mini picked some for me. There were not enough to make a nice “berries on a straw” that makes for the perfect summer picture but they were so tasty and yummy for the tummy!
I also think that we saw blueberries and lingonberries but we were not sure so no tasting there. To sum the walking trail up… It is great and I can’t believe that it’s not more popular. During our walk, we didn’t meet anyone else and our car was the only one at the parking. According to TripAdvisor, this trail comes at number 7 of things to do in Bromölla. We have not done all the other activities and sightseeing on the list yet but I do believe that this one should be higher up on the ranking.
A Super Tip: An app called All trails
We used it to locate this trail. Awesome! Looks like there are a lot of trails from around the world. I think it’s a great tip for all hikers, trekkers, campers and mountain bikers to check out new trails.
