Dog Walks

Follow the Ume River east or west and enjoy the views and nature. The western part is especially popular for walks early in the spring when the warmth from the spring sun clings to the slopes down to the river. If you and your canine companion are in the mood for a long walk or hike, you can take the Tavesjö Trail to Hamptjärnsberget, Sundlingska Gården, and Tavelsjö Wärdshus. If you choose to walk east, you will reach the Artistic Campus with the Umeå Institute of Design, Bildmuseet, and Curiosum.

Döbelns park

Döbelns Park is Umeå’s oldest park. The park is centrally located between the County Residence and the City Church, and it’s a perfect loop for walking your dog. Enjoy summer flower beds and perennial borders and look at the monument of General von Döbeln, the bust of composer Wilhelm Peterson-Berger, and the Memorial Stone for Peacekeepers. There is also a grove of Lombardy poplars planted in 1865 that survived the city fire.
