About the trail

The Hälsingland Farm Trail is an up-and-coming tourist trail which meanders through the villages and districts that are home to the biggest Hälsingland farmhouses, the most magnificent porches and most extravagantly painted interiors. Hundreds of these farmhouses are scattered like jewels over the province.


The trail, which takes you through a cultural landscape that is a thousand years old, stretches from the banks of the Voxna river to the vast northern forests that are home to the farms’ summer pastures.
The flax scutcheries, mills and sawmills along watercourses flowing down from the wooded high country through villages to the river bear witness to the agricultural industry that made the Hälsingland farmers rich.


The Ol-Anders farm, in Östra Kyrkbyn in Alfta near route 50, is the gateway to the Hälsingland Farm Trail.

The route – 28 km in all – leads you past Löka farm in the village of Gundbo and on through the villages of Näsbyn, Långhed, Vängsbo, Knåda, Roteberg and Ullungsfors, to end at Mårtes farm in Edsbyn

The map is available as a postcard from farms that are open to visitors (Ol-Anders, Löka and Mårtes) as well as the Edsbyn Museum and the Alfta Heritage Centre (Hembygdshuset).

Ol-Anders, Löka and Mårtes are easy to find by following the brown and white ‘tourist attraction’ signs.
Ol-Anders is open all year and the other two farms during the summer.

Our flower symbol

 

Our flower symbol

The trail’s flower symbol comes from the grandiose painted ceiling at Mårtes farm in Edsbyn.
The symbol is included in the slideshow on our homepage. It can be used by companies and other activities wishing to show that they are open along the trail.
