The Crown Princess's eleventh province hike begins in Ulvö by Lake Åsnen, then goes along the embankment to Trollberget and then to Hulevik's harbour. From Hulevik Harbour, the hike continues by a boat on Lake Åsnen to Hunshult Nature Reserve.

During the hike, the Crown Princess experiences the unique bird life around Lake Åsnen, meets Troll mother and young trolls in Trollberget, walks through noble leafy tree forest and orchards meadows. In Sunnabron and Bjurkärr, the Crown Princess receives a close to nature meeting with the bogs and mosses and lichens of the beech forest.

Program on Victoria's hike in Bohuslän tomorrow, from the website of the County Administrative Board of Västra Götaland.

For a long time, the Crown Princess has also wanted to pay attention to the amount of plastics and garbage on the Swedish Bohus Coast, so that more people will realize the problem and do something about it. The public is welcomed to participate in the 5 km long hiking on Nordkoster.
- We are looking forward to showing the Crown Princess the beautiful Koster and our Marine National Park Kosterhavet. The contrast between the environmental problems with marine litter and the important natural values we protect will be extra clear in connection with the element of beach cleaning, says governor Anders Danielsson.

10.30-12.00 Seminar ”Ett hav av plast – hur illa är det och hur räddar vi haven från att kvävas av plastavfall?” ("A sea of ​​plastic - how bad is it and how do we save the seas from being suffocated with plastic waste?"), Sven Lovén Centre for Marine Infrastructure, Tjärnö
Boat from the northern port of Strömstad to the Västra Bryggan on Nordkoster.
13.15-14.55 Hiking on Nordkoster

Victoria's speech, she said among other things:
You know how children are, they never want to stop swimming. But when Estelle finally got out of the water, I realized she was very sandy. I started brushing her the sand, as you do. But it was difficult. It remained. And then it struck me: "Wait now, this is a rocky beach. Where does this sand come from? "
So I started looking closer, and then I saw that these grains were not brown and gray like sand usually was. But they were blue, yellow and red. There were microplasts!
I have the privilege of being ambassador to the UN's global goals. In that role, I have chosen to focus especially on marine and water issues. So it is clear that I knew that plastic in the garden is a giant problem. Nevertheless, this discovery on the beach became an eye opener for me. It became so apparent.

- The Crown Princess talked about the importance of these questions, and that she is passionate about the maritime issues and the marine environment, says Mikael Appelqvist, the program manager at the County Administrative Board.
The public was also invited to join the hike and according to Mikael Appelqvist there were many people who showed up to hike with the Crown Princess.
- It has been perfect, it was almost ridiculously idyllic on Nordkoster. There were a lot of people who were enthusiastic.

Bojarskolan's class 3 from Strömstad has won a prize for picking up litter and told the princess they went to a brook close to the school and found strange things.
- There was a knife, a coffee maker and a washing machine, says a girl.
Victoria and the schoolchildren then went along the beach and picked up every piece of junk they found. The sun was shining and even many adults helped to pick the beach clean.

On Friday Småland's three governors welcome HRH Crown Princess Victoria to her province hike in Småland.
We asked the governor of Jönköping County Helena Jonsson what she is looking forward to most with the hike.
- It will be nice to meet the Crown Princess in such casual event and be able to show some of what Småland has to offer. Hopefully we get nice hiking weather.
We asked the governor of Kalmar County Tomas Carlzon what he is looking forward to most with the hike.
- I think the Crown Princess's initiative with hikes is amazing, primarily because the public can accompany, exercise and look our beautiful scenery.
We asked the governor of Kronoberg County Ingrid Burman what she is looking forward to most with the hike.
- I look forward on showing the Crown Princess the beautiful nature of Småland and its hiking trails. Here you will find the water, the birds and the biodiversity.

Sveriges Radio P4 Kronoberg talked with Victoria when she walked to the inauguration of the National Park.
Victoria said: It's a big day. Sweden gets its thirtieth national park. And this whole day, everything that has been outdoors, the amazing nature .. And so we just came with a boat to this beach and the reception ... We go to the inaugurating ceremony. So it feels very special.
Kronprinsessan i Kronobergs län (The Crown Princess in Kronoberg County)?
Victoria: It sounds good.
To dress to this day, how have you thought about it?
Victoria: It is a day that has very varied programs. First and foremost, there is the hike in the stunning province. But we will also come to an inaugurating ceremony, which I see is solemn. We open a national park, it's a big moment, where we can really highlight how we care and protect our nature and environment. And we have been in the woods. There are quite a lot midges. I focused on long-legged and long-sleeved clothes.

From Facebook of Växjö municipality
"Today at the inauguration of Åsnen National Park, Pilbäckskolan school in Växjö had an important part. Pupils from there actually took care that H.R.H Crown Princess Victoria got food in her stomach after her hike through the nature reserve. Meatballs with macaroni and vegetables for main course and krabbelurer (small pancakes) for dessert the kids and the Crown Princess made together. The students also taught the Crown Princess to knit the macramé. She then knitted a bracelet and now wears it as a nice memory of the day."

- That she came to us was great fun! I think it will be an extra pride for the village. And tourists may open their eyes and think it's worth coming here to visit the place, says Helene Pettersson.

Victoria says: "To come out on a day like this, and to be able to really experience and enjoy of everything exquisite we have. To be outdoors gives a very good foundation to talk about big and small questions. We can then really emphasize the importance how we take care and protect our nature and environment. We are getting again a National Park and it is a great moment".

Victoria said at her speech among other things:
We have a great responsibility to protect our common nature and cultural heritage. It's about protecting and preserving. But also about opening up and making available to more. So that more people get the opportunity to experience these unique environments. And so that more people get a relationship with them, and want to be with and nurture them for the future.
There Sweden's national parks fill an important function.

Folk festival when Victoria walked through Skåne
Crown Princess Victoria hiked in Skåne on Tuesday. She walked on foot between Stenshuvud and Brösarp and was followed by hundreds of jubilant fans.
The excitement was great at Stenshuvud Naturum during Tuesday morning when the Crown Princess Victoria was coming and walking.
"Vickan" is out on a cool tour, she hikes through all Sweden's provinces. She got the idea when she planned her 40th anniversary.
- The Crown Princess wants to visualize the treasure that Swedish nature is, says Margareta Thorgren.
According to the scheme she would start at Stenshuvud's naturum and hike through the top to the Naturskolan Österlen. After lunch, "Vickan" would go further along Skåneleden and Backaleden from Vitemölla to Brösarp's station.
The proposal that the princess's provincial hike in Skåne would go just east of Skåne came from the County Administrative Board.
- That was our proposal. We thought about where she had previously been in Skåne and found out she probably had not been on this side, says Paul-Eric Jönsson, head of the nature conservation unit.
Hundreds of curious people had finished at Stenhuvud and had to wait a little extra for royality. The Crown Princess's plane had been delayed.
Siri and Viola Hegestam patiently waited with their grandmother to wander a bit with the princess. They like princesses but this was the first time they would see a real princess.
How is a princess you think?
- Don't know but they can be married to kings, says Viola.
What do you like for princesses?
- Elsa, because she has a friend named Anna (from Disney's Frozen)
Do you think Crown Princess Victoria also has friends?
- Yes.
A little late, finally, Crown Princess Victoria came and met with great jubilation. And the Crown Princess rejoiced back.
- Hey Skåne, she called
- Hello Crown Princess, people called back.
Then she went out for her hike and was followed by her fans.

Oscar is too young to take part to the whole hiking, to take him to 600 km away from Stockholm, to show him in the beginning of the hike for a few minutes and then leave him to the nanny when Victoria was hiking for over six hours doesn't seem very reasonable. Victoria's day away from Stockholm was over 10 hours long. And since she didn't have Estelle with her on her hike in Östergötland, no need to take Oscar here. They can make an own visit with Oscar to Skåne.

A short video at court Youtube, Victoria says:
This is an absolutely great day, it is so unbeliavably fine. This is a good leg. It is so beautiful and varying, we have today really gotten to experience so many different types of nature. New precious things all the time. Wonderful day!

Victoria took part in Nature School's work in the water with Simrislundsskolan's children.
She was active in the water and walked around among the children to hear what they caught.
- It's a great opportunity. If you don't get into nature, you can't care and protect it, she said about the Nature School.
After lunch, walking from Vitemölla to final destination Brösarps station was on schedule.
Terri Rayer from Frisco, Texas, visited relatives in the country of which her great grandfather had left.
- My cousin told us we could walk with her in one of the most beautiful parts of Sweden. It felt like something we could not miss, Terri Rayer said before the hike.
Her daughter Emily Rayer got to shook hands with the Crown Princess.

Anette Jarlsson and Ingela Aronsson had traveled from Perstorp to accompany the Crown Princess Victoria when she did her province hike on Österlen on Tuesday.
- I love to photograph the royal family, to follow them all over Sweden. We were in Stockholm during the weekend and followed the christening. And we are going to Öland on 14th July when the crown princess turns 41 years, says Ingela.
She hoped the day would give her many nice photos of the crown princess.
- I hope for a nice walk and maybe I get to talk to her, says Anette.

ROYAL: Victoria wandert durch die Provinz Skaane

Crown Princess Victoria has since 2017 made a series of hikes through Sweden's provinces to experience different parts of the country and to visualize the treasure that Swedish nature is. During the 12th visit, the Crown Princess chose to visit Österlen, including the Stenshuvud National Park and Österlen Nature School at Kiviks Musteri.
Österlen Nature School has been established through a collaboration between Kiviks Musteri and Simrishamns Municipality and was opened 3 years ago. Österlen Nature School is located right next to the Baltic Sea, Kiviks Musteri's apple plants and Stenshuvud National Park, making it Sweden's most unique natural school. Here, students, as a complement to school education, can learn more about nature and the environment in a fantastic, varied environment that promotes exploration, learning and movement. Something that also is close to the heart of the Crown Princess.
- We are incredibly happy that the Crown Princess has chosen to visit just the Österlen Nature School. It is of course a wonderful recognition for all of us who worked with the Nature Schooll, said Thomas Jensen, CEO at Kivik's Musteri, and hopes that more people through this can be inspired to initiatives that can enhance children and pupils' interest in nature and the environment.
The Crown Princess continued her hiking along Skåneleden to Brösarp, with short breaks for conversations and activities. Of course, the Crown Princess got Kivik's Musteri's apple juice.
- Extra fun is that Crown Princess's great-grandfather asked my great-grandfather how to handle his apple trees, said Carl Levinsson, Product Manager and the 5th Generation in Kivik's Musteri.
Kiviks Musteri celebrates its 130th anniversary this year, so what's better than a royal visit.
- It is very nice to have the Crown Princess walking here on Österlen along all beautiful apple farms. It was here that Henric Åkesson in 1888 laid the foundation of Kivik's Musteri when he planted his first apple trees, says Kristina Levinsson, partner and 4th generation at Kiviks Musteri.
