Hike in the Tofta Herrgård surroundings
Here on the Tofta peninsula, we can offer hiking trails by the sea, through forests and across meadows.Tofta nature reserve offers varied and easy walks across flowering meadows and bare cliffs by the sea. There are several lookout points with benches and tables along the hiking trails – in other spots, nature offers its own seating areas.
There are opportunities for everything from easy walks on gravel roads and horse-riding trails to slightly more difficult trails along the cliffs at the outermost tip of the Tofta peninsula.
Here are some suggestions from us:
- Äggdal trail. Marked in orange on the map below. 4.6 km. Around the Tofta peninsula nature reserve. Along the Tofta Nature Reserve coastline follow blue or red markings. Parts of the nature reserve paths can be wet.
- Myggsta trail. Marked in green on the map 4.2 km. Gravel and sealed roads. Short section of horse-riding trail that can get muddy in wet weather.
- The Forest trail. Marked in blue on the map 0,7 km. Follow the blue markings through the forest and along the mountain ridge across the nature reserve.

On Koön, at Marstrand, there are three hiking trails to explore.
Hike around Marstrand island
Distance from Tofta Herrgård to Marstrand's ferry stop: 15 km
The trail around Marstrand is about 5 kilometres and a walk around the island takes about an hour.
Hike around Dyrön
Distance from Tofta Herrgård to the ferry stop Rökan (just before Marstrand): 10 km
Experience the Bohuslän nature by hiking around 4.5 km around the island. The Dyrö trail is mountainous and can be slippery if it rains so you need strong legs and proper shoes or boots.

The ferry takes about 25 minutes and runs all year.)
