Section 8 Vigelsjö - Roslagsbro


Vigelsjö is a hub on the Roslagsleden trail. The trail from Danderyd ends here and it is also where the new section of Roslagsleden to Grisslehamn on the Sea of Åland starts. Vigelsjö offers nature trails, swimming in lake Lommaren, floodlit trails, boules and rowing boat, canoe and bicycle hire, as well as selling fishing permits. There is also a café and a campsite with cabins as well as tent and caravan pitches. Vigelsjö nature reserve comprises woodland and open fields and is a wonderful place to enjoy the great outdoors. Parts of the nature reserve are of great natural value, e.g. the oak woods Vigelsjö Lund, where golden anemones can be found.

From Vigelsjö gård the route continues in the rich nature past Färsna 4H-Gård with farm animals to see and a café, Tupplidret, open all year round. The local Vintage Tractor Club has a display of well-kept, old vintage tractors and farm machinery here.

From Färsna to Roslagsbro the trail follows paths, gravel roads and tarmac roads. Here Roslagsleden runs parallel with Broströmmen – a 14 km-long canoe route between Brosjön and Norrtäljeviken.

At Roslagsbro church there is an ideal landing place for canoes. The church dates back to the 13th century, and was described as the cathedral of Roslagen by Bishop Nathan Söderblom.

Beside Broströmmen in Roslagsbro there is a small car park and several bus stops with connections to Norrtälje.
