The Ostkustleden is 160 km long and split into eight stages, where each stage is approx. 20 km long.

The Ostkustleden forms a complete circle. The first stage starts at Lilla Hycklinge, which is usually a natural starting point. The Ostkustleden offers everything from bright grove areas to barren archipelago scenery with little in the way of wildlife. The 160 km long hiking trail is split into 8 stages. Each stage is approx. 20 km long and at each checkpoint, there are overnight cabins that are open throughout the year. You can purchase a copy of the Ostkustleden leaflet, with trail descriptions, from Döderhult’s Society for Nature Conservation or from the Oskarshamn Tourist Information.
