Grottstigen 4,7 km – rock formations and dwarf pines
The rocky hills are barren and there is often a hard northern wind. Vegetation has adapted to the harsh conditions and there are mainly knotty and dwarfish pines. The area offers breathtaking rocky slopes and exciting rock formations and caves where the locals used to go hiding from the Russians invaders during the Great Northern War (1714–1721). One of the many hill slopes has been shaped like narrow terraces and reminds of a natural amphitheatre. The trail passes Djupvik, a narrow bay with cliffs.
Enjoy nature! Take nothing but photos, leave nothing but footsteps.
