Itinerary

Individual arrival to Helsingborg. Your hotel is located in the center of Helsingborg with easy access to the city’s main attractions, like the medieval watchtower Kärnan and St. Mary’s Church. In the evening a welcome briefing and bike fitting (if booked) takes place.

Starting with a ride along the promenade in Helsingborg you will soon pass Sofiero Palace with its gardens. The park is a thriving oasis and was awarded as “Europes Most Beautiful Park” in 2010. You continue along the coast through quaint little fishing villages and small boat marinas. The tour leads you to Höganäs where you can see and buy the world famous salt-glazed Höganäs ceramics. The journey crosses the Kulla Peninsula, passing vineyards and small farm shops before you get to Ängelholm where you stay overnight.

From Ängelholm you follow the coast to Vejbystrand. You cycle through open meadows and several small coastal communities. In Magnarps Port you can stop for a well-hidden, lovely fish restaurant with a stunning view of the sea. You leave the coast to cycle across the peninsula towards the beautiful summer town of Båstad. Now the journey continues along one of Sweden’s longest sandy beaches and the resorts of Skummeslövsstrand and Mellbystrand. You will also pass the nature reserves Tönnrersa and Gullbranna and finally reach Halmstad.

Today Sweden’s most famous beach is awaiting you: Tylösand. Not only the beach but also the hotel of the same name is worth a visit. The trip continues north along the coast. The sea, open countryside, exciting nature reserves and lush farmland lies along the following stretch. You pass Ugglarp, a small coastal community with famous vegetable gardens and a nice seaside resort. The route leads you over beautiful Grimsholmen to Falkenberg, which is one of the oldest medieval towns in the region of Halland.

Look forward to picturesque fishing villages, artists and artisans along the route. In Träslövsläge you can feast on freshly cooked lobsters and stroll through the older parts of the city. As you approach Varberg the castle towers over you.

North of Varberg the landscape changes - the sandy beaches are fewer and smaller, while rocky coastline starts to dominate and the first islands begin to appear in the sea. In Åsa you leave the sea for a moment to bike through farmland and rolling hills to Fjärås Bräcka. Take a break and enjoy the views of both the lake and the sea, and visit the Li burial ground with its more than 100 stone megaliths. Along fields and horse farms you will reach Kungsbacka finally, a cozy small town with impressing old city.

You missed the sea? Thanks heaven it will accompany you again today. You will pass Vallda and Särö, the former playground of the ancient royal family and Gothenburg high society. Afterwards you will soon reach the old railway, now converted into a bike path just near the sea. Cliffs, lush forests, bays and marinas line your path into Gothenburg. Follow the harbor to enter Sweden’s second largest city and enjoy your last overnight.

After breakfast your tour ends. We are happy to extend your holidays with extra nights.
