The verb “stroll” means to walk in leisure; to saunter; walk along lazily. You can stroll in the park, for example.
The verb “range” means to move this way and that way, to move about without definite purpose, to wander in all directions. It however stresses not so much the manner of movement as the extent of area covered: to range the seas, forests, hills, oceans, etc.
In this example "range" is more appropriate since it implies a wide area.
