Crown Princess Victoria hikes in Halland
Today, Crown Princess Victoria completed her nineteenth hike through Sweden’s provinces, this time in Halland.
The Crown Princess began this hike initiative after her 40th Birthday in 2017 and is scheduled to finish hiking all the provinces by her birthday of this year. With the hikes, the Crown Princess wants to experience different parts of Sweden during different seasons and to highlight the treasure that Swedish nature is for everyone who lives and works here. Halland was the duchy of Prince Bertil and Princess Lilian.
The hike took place along the Prince Bertil’s Trail where several activities were scheduled. At Jansabryggan, Crown Princess Victoria met with students and staff from Eketånga Montessoriskola to learn about the “Well-being gives results'“ method which promotes health and learning. At Grötvik harbor, they saw the Sea Rescue Society’s station and a senior hiker group explained to Victoria their activities to promote movement throughout their lives. The next stop was the beach in Sandhamn where kite, surf, stand up paddleboard (SUP) and more are popular activities.
After having lunch in Svärjarehålan, they continued the hike and stopped in Tylösand, they learned more about the work of the lifeguards and they saw a demonstration of children's & youth activities for increased water knowledge. The hike ended in Möllegård where they were given a presentation on Riccardo's ice cream shop. During the hike, Crown Princess Victoria also received information about the path and its origins, the marine environment and the fauna along the Halland coast and the snorkel trail at Svärjarehålan.
For this hike, Crown Princess Victoria wore a very appropriate outfit choosing her Tretorn From the Sea raincoat with a new Houdini Power Houdi jacket. She wore her Merrell Moab shoes with a new By Malina Jacky jungle print scarf.
