The start and goal will be in Saltsjöbaden and the base camps will be on the beautiful Islands of Rånö in the south (one night) and the Lökholmen in the middle (two nights). This gives possibilities to round some of the spectacular Light houses Landsort or Huvudskär on day 2 and then to reach as far North as Rödlöga on day 3. The aim will be to start early (before 6 AM) at least one day to be able to reach all remote, magic places far from the base camps.

A possible course 2020.
