Crown Princess Victoria’s next walk to be in brother’s duchy of Värmland

Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden’s next hike through the Swedish landscape will be in her brother, Prince Carl Philip’s duchy of Värmland; the fourth walk in Sweden is due to take place on 17 November.

She has previously walked and biked through her duchy of Västergötland, alongside her husband Prince Daniel, the duchy of Västerbotten, and her daughter, Princess Estelle’s duchy of Östergötland. There was hope that five-year-old Estelle would accompany her mother on this 3.5-kilometre walk, but she remained at home with her father, Prince Daniel, and brother, Prince Oscar.

In a press release, the Royal Court said, “The Crown Princess’s fourth landscape change takes place in the Glaskog Nature Reserve in Värmland. During the walk, the Crown Princess will be able to establish an acquaintance with predator invasion, nature parkour and tree planting.”

Crown Princess Victoria’s plan to walk through Sweden’s entire landscape was announced in the autumn of this year. The Royal Court has said that these walks will take place over the next several years and the goal of Victoria is “to increase the value of outdoor life and movement in connection with her migration through Sweden.”

Additionally, the varying landscapes are visited “during a day where the Crown Princess walks to experience a part of Sweden’s uniquely accessible and varied nature.” They added that Crown Princess Victoria also “wants to experience different parts of Sweden during different seasons.”

The location of her fifth walk is expected to be announced at the end of the month, soon after she completes her hike in Värmland.
