On May 25 we arrive at Nydala . Last year they had closed the cafe when we reached it but this year we are being proactive. They know we are coming and that we will probably arrive around lunchtime. You can chose between smoked salmon with potatoes or pork filet with potatoes. Both cost 119 SEK. Bottled beverages (non alcoholic) cost 18 SEK and coffee an extra 10 SEK. They would like to know at least a week before if you want to eat at their place. You can email cc.norrby@gmail.com or call Cecilia at  +46 707-310132

On May 20 at Boda there is another place worth visiting, the Tramps Museum or Hönsalottas Luffarmuseum. We will try make sure that we do not leave any of our tramps behind for display...

Hönsalottas Luffarmuseum also serves a buffet lunch that seems designed for tramps like us. Pickled herring, meatballs, 'lard-strips' (isterband), 'body-cakes' (just joking, it is kroppkakor), bacon and other high caloric dishes that will be the equal of rocket fuel on the trail. Beverages are includes as well as coffee and a cookie, all for 95 SEK. Drop a mail to luffarmuseum@hotmail.com if you want to eat there on May 20.

On May 24 we will pass Broaskog, which is a very nice shop and cafe situated sort of in the middle of nowhere. They have lots of Icelandic horses and receive groups for riding on these. So the coffee shop is not really for stray passers-by (there aren't any...) but they will open for us from 11 am this day. Coffee and icecream and, perhaps, kanelbulle...

All participants in Coast2Coast Sweden will get a 15 percent reduction if they order dinner at Ugglebo Inn in Fegen May 29. There will be two dishes to choose between (more info on that during our hike) and the price will be 100 SEK.
There’s also accommodation at Ugglebo Inn. A 4-bed cabin with an additional sofa bed is 900 SEK. Sheets, towels and coffee in the cabin is included in the price.

One of the nicest night spots along the route last year was N Svänö, a beautiful old farm turned hostel right at the border of Store Mosse National Park.

Like last year the house to the right in the photo above will be open as a shelter when needed. And you can sleep on the wooden floor if you like. No cost.

However you can also get access to a room of your own in the other house. There will be keys kept in a coded box and the code will be available if you book a room right here. Note that the website has a flag you can click for an English or German version.

If you are a member of the Swedish Tourist Association (STF) or any similar organisation in your company affiliated to STF a single room will cost some 300 SEK, part in a double some 200 SEK and a bed 150 SEK.

 At Åkulla (above)  there is also an opportunity to sleep inside. This will be the last night before Varberg. Tenting outside the lodge and using water and toilets will also cost. Camping in the forest some hundred yards away from the lodge is of course free.They have told me that they will stay open if a number of people want to eat there.  You can contact them here. Or we can give them a call a couple of days in advance to let them know how many eaters are coming.
