In the 18th century, Carl Linnaeus walked along the Bure River towards the sea and enjoyed nature. A walk in the footsteps of the flower king is an experience even today. The trail has many nice resting places. Remember to buy a fishing licence if you want to try your luck at fishing.

In the spirit of Linnaeus

When Carl Linnaeus travelled by boat up the coast of western Sweden in the 18th century, he made beach stops in many places. One place was Bureå, where he walked along the Bure River and enjoyed the stunning scenery. And it is a hike that is well worth the effort to this day.

The hike goes through pine and spruce forests, along the river, past marshland, over streams and rocky hills where the ice sheet left its mark. During the hike you will find the most common berries from our Westrobothnian forests as well as many different plants such as spatterjack, wood star, lime blossom and lily of the valley.

The Linnaeus Trail is 3.5 kilometres long and starts at Strömsholmsvägen and follows the Bure River up to Bursjön and on towards Holmsjön. At the end of the trail you can cross over Strömsholmsvägen to Holmsjön where there is a bird tower, so bring your binoculars and take the opportunity to enjoy Holmsjön's bird life.

Then walk back the same way or follow the forest road to the car park.
