Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden traded her ballgowns and tiaras for flannel and a baseball cap for her latest adventure.

The future queen and her husband, Prince Daniel, shared photos from a weekend hike in the mountains of Sweden on Instagram. In a sweet shot of the couple, Princess Victoria shows off her sporty side in a New York Yankees hat, blue flannel shirt and hiking books. However, she does add a touch of glam with her red nail polish.

In a second shot from their walk in the Jämtland Triangle, Princess Victoria wears a large backpack as she crouches down to take a drink from a stream.

The socially distant activity highlighted the Swedish Tourist Association's work to spread knowledge and accessibility about the country's wildlife areas.
