The Wilderness Road is anything but simply a thoroughfare. There are plenty of things to see and do along the route. Some sites are obvious and can be visited on a whim, others require planning and prebooking.

There are certain stops along the Wilderness Road you must do. Among them Korallgrottan, Sweden's longest cave, and Hällingsåfallet, one of the country's highest waterfalls and the longest canyon. And between Saxnäs and Klimpfjäll lies Fatmomakke, one of the best-preserved Sami church towns in Sweden.
