8 – 10 hr
This is a longer section which takes you over a few hills providing great views along the way. From Röjden, hike west for 6 kilometers along a flat trail into Norway. Just before reaching Breisjøen, Finnskogleden takes you away from the road and into the woods to the north. The trail rises slowly upwards to the pond Kottern.
From there, the trail continues steeper up to Gråberget, at 631 meters above sea level. After the peak, the trail goes down and back up over several hills and takes you through a few wooded marshes. The trail follows the border road up to the highest point of the trip, Elgklinten, at 634 moh, providing a magnificent view of Finnskogen.
Continue following the border road for a few more kilometers before turning west towards the Finnish village, Furuberget, where you will find the nice farmland scattered with many old buildings. Following Furuberget, continue north for a few kilometers until reaching Østbakken, where you will catch a wide view of Vermundsjøen.
Continue hiking until you reach Mattiashemmet, which was also an important border crossing for refugees during World War II. Here, you cross the border into Sweden. The trail takes you down to the river where you cross over on the bridge. From here, hike the final half-kilometer until reaching Medskogen, which is located along the main road.
