In April 2018 the Crown Princess walked through Blekinge as her first walk in her series of hikes through Sweden of that year. Blekinge is the duchy of her niece Princess Adrienne. During that walk, Crown Princess Victoria and her entourage kicked off with a visit to the Hulta preschool where the Crown Princess got to meet the children and staff. Dressed in jeans and sneakers, the Crown Princess was then welcomed by hundreds of people who had gathered at the town square to see her. The hike went along the Ronneby River down to Ronneby Brunnspark. Throughout the day the Crown Princess made several stops to see different parts of the city.
