Nynäs Naturreservat

Tours > Hikes
Nynäs Naturreservat is one of Sörmlands biggest Nature Reserves and located at the beautiful coast in front of the archipelago islands. The nature here is extremely diverse and even cultural sights like the castle Nynäs Slott, the ancient sawmill Bråfalls Såg and the former mill Karlfors Kvarn are to be found in the area. This high diversity in the Nynäs Naturreservat makes me offer different hikes which you can find below.

From Nynäs Brygga to Sandvik beach
A varied hike through protected forest areas and along the Baltic Sea coast with numerous geological sights and a beach with light sand.

First, we hike on the Sörmlandsleden, which leads us on forest paths through the landscape shaped by the last ice age. Along the coast there is a wonderful view of the Baltic Sea with its archipelago islands. Finally, we come to “Sandviks Badplats” with its relatively large sandy beach. Here the Baltic Sea invites you to take a swim.

What very few people know: The circular bay Tvären was created around 450 million years ago by a meteorite impact.

The way back to the parking is much shorter and runs on wide gravel paths along the coast. However, this is by no means a boring section. There are always beautiful views of the bay and here and there a tiny red house with gnarled apple trees in the garden. Numerous orchids bloom along the way in early summer.
 
As a geographer and biologist, I will give you valuable information about the last ice age, its traces in today's landscape and much more. On this hike we see a so-called giant's kettle, which was created by meltwater at the end of the last ice age. Furthermore, I will explain the changes in the coastline over the past millennia and the process of postglacial rebound. Remains of higher sea levels and therefore different coastlines can be found along the way.

Nynäs Naturreservat
This circular hike in Nynäs Naturreservat runs partly on the marked Sörmlandsleden hiking trail and partly on gravel paths.

The starting point is the old sawmill Bråfalls Såg, which is still partially preserved and can even be explored from the inside at your own risk. The building, of which the reed roof was renewed in 2016, is located on a small stream. Even remains of the artificial dam can be found.
 
Lake Björken is surrounded by forest and offers a beautiful swimming area. There is also a wind shelter, making it a good picnic area in all weathers. We follow the old miller’s path down to the abandoned mill Karlfors Kvarn, which was built in 1828 and was in operation until 1954.
 
As your private guide, I will give you valuable information about the last ice age, its traces in today's landscape and the historical sights mentioned.

Notice: Unfortunately OpenStreetMap shows agricultural area all along the coast. In fact there are huge forest areas where we will hike through. You can check this out on any satellite picture.
