From the idyllic lake Abborrtjärn, via the fantastic view at Dragonkullen and on to the Svinesund Bridge and the border with Norway. For many, this is a remote and forgotten part of the Kuststigen-trail, but the section offers the hiker a great nature-experience.

The section starts at Abborrtjärn on the mountain Ramberget. From here the trail goes down to the shore of the fjord Idefjorden and the small village of Hälle. The trail follows the fjord for a while and then again spirals across the heights, in a crooked path, towards Svinesund.
