By foot from the middle of town to the middle of nature! From central Gothenburg it is only a few kilometers to the forest and the silence.

It is a very special feeling to leave Gothenburg's famously cozy city center on foot. Gotaleden starts outside the tourist office at Kungsportsplatsen in the city center. From here you are led out of the city through lush wooden alleys and past restaurants, cafes and Liseberg that you can save for another time. After just under 4 km, the city buildings are sparse and you reach Delsjön's nature reserve. Delsjön is Gothenburg's largest nature area with, among other things, beautiful, old oaks, fine swimming lakes and walking paths through the forest.

Opposite Delsjökolonin you pass the charming Torpet Mon which has a bed and breakfast in the summer.

At the stage finish in Skatås there are running tracks, café and toilets.

The stretch is easy to walk through the city and slightly hilly in the nature reserve.
