Trail running offers more than just a chance to get out and exercise in the surrounding nature. Bounding along supple pathways, through silent forests and shimmering mountain lakes is one of the best ways to soothe the body and soul. Trail running around one of many lakes in Sweden is particularly attractive. Southern Årefjällen in the Swedish mountains, delivers one of the very best lake runs. High up in the mountains, over undulating sub-alpine terrain and revealing itself through the ancient forests, lies Blanktjärn, the emerald green, incandescent Swedish lake. It’s a beautiful, 12 km long trail loop that’s perfectly suited for runners looking for a day’s adventure in the mountains.
