A hiking trail on the greenest island in lake Helgasjön, 5,3 km.
Although Lake Helgasjön's greenest island is within biking distance from Växjö, all the sounds of the city seem so far away. Instead, you'll be greeted by quiet strolling paths and unobtrusive beaches. Walking around this island take between one and two hours. Glisteningly green beech forests alternate with spruce, pine and oak. The eastern part of Hissö island has small hidden bathing coves with soft sandy bottoms. Black-throated divers and sandpipers can be found along the shores of Lake Helgasjön. The trail around Hissö island, only, has a total length of 3.8 kilometers, whilst the extension to the island Musön increases the total length by 1.5 kilometers.
This hiking track can be combined with the trail Åsslingan (6 km).
