Hiking - Kyrkstigen

Skellefteå

Length: 40 kilometres

Route: Skellefteå - Burträsk

Start: You can choose to start at one of the churches – Skellefteå landsförsamlingskyrka or Burträsk kyrka – or at one of the villages that the trail passes. Check the website and choose whichever suits you best.

Description: The old path between the churches offers good opportunities to experience the varied natural environment through which it passes.

Good to know: Rest stops with log-built wind shelters and benches are situated along the trail. If you want to stay overnight, there is the log-built “Krypladan” hay barn, close to the junction between the trail and Brännvattsvägen. During the summer, there is a café at Renbergsvattnet.

Points of interest: The natural spring in Burträsk, Wilhelm Peterson-Berger’s childhood home in Åbyn-Burträsk, and the  bridge of Lejonström in Skellefteå. You can also pay a visit to the churches.
