The second stage is the most diverse in this adventure. You run through enchanted deciduous forests, over rocks along the shore, and through the stunning old stonemasonry and small fishing villages.
The stage starts on Bohus-Malmön which is a place with an interesting stonemasonry history, with reminders such as the old quarries and stone remnants. The coastal trail here takes us around the island and you will pass nice beaches with smooth granit slabs. After 11 K Bohus-Malmön, you arrive at the ferry station, where a ferry will take you back to the mainland. Here, you will be treated to some refreshments and food while waiting for the ferry. During this break, timekeeping will of course be stopped.
On the main, starting at Tullboden, the second episode of the stage starts. Here awaits a quite hilly track with a wide range of scenery. Here you will pass slippery rocks, verdant forests and pittoresque gravel roads. After approx. 17 additional K, you will reach the finish line in Kungshamn, where shuttle busses will take you back to your accommodation.
The course is marked with pink markers/stripes. There are distance signs every second kilometer.
Water and energy drink stations will be located approximately every 5-6 km. At each drink station you will also find a toilet.
The hikers can choose to take a shorter route at Bohus-Malmön, which shorten the total distance of this day to 20 kilometers. The ones that choose the shorter route will be excluded from the result list.
