Take your time to discover Gothenburg with its exciting places of interest such as the Feskekôrka fish market or the Gothenburg Museum of Art and take a typical Swedish fika break (coffee and cake) in charming Haga district. Besides lovely cafés the area also offers a wonderful selection of small artisan shops. The city is also well-known for its local clothing brands and interior furnishing if you are looking for a souvenir to take home. End your day with the number one speciality from port city Gothenburg for dinner - shrimps, fresh fish, clams and oysters - the selection is huge and yummy!
Kattegattleden (Swedish for the Kattegat route) is calling! After breakfast you start your trip with a train ride to Kungsbacka. Once arrived the pedalling fun begins. Enjoy your bike tour along the impressive Baltic Sea and via 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 back into Gothenburg.
No cycling today! You leave the urban area by foot to shortly after enter Delsjön nature reserve with its beautiful old oaks. Once you have reached Skatås you continue through nature reserve Knipeflågsbergen, a huge mountain plateau. Climb mountain Getryggen and enjoy the fantastic view from the top of the ridge onto Gothenburg. Bring your swimming suits to jump into lake Kåsjön, your today's goal. Afterwards you return by train to Gothenburg.
From ferry terminal Stenpiren or Lilla Varholmen you reach island Hönö Klåva by boat (tickets available on board, ca. SEK 250 per person). On flat routes you then explore the Northern archipelago. Visit the Fiskemuseet (fishing museum) to learn more about boats and the history of fishery. Afterwards a stop at Concept Store Lilling Cottage is worth it for a light lunch. Continue your tour through nature reserve Ersdalen onto the islands of Öckerö, Hälsö and Knippla before your boat brings you back to Gothenburg in the late afternoon.
Today you explore the South. You start again with a boat ride (ca. 50 minutes, ca. SEK 70 per person). Explore the car free islands of Styrsö and Donsö. Summer restaurant Isbolaget is located next to the pier and the right address for a tasty lunch. Enjoy the silence and idyll of the archipelago, also for a swim in the refreshing sea before you return to lively Gothenburg. Spend your last evening in one of the numerous restaurants.
After breakfast your bike tour ends. We are happy to extend your holidays with extra nights in Gothenburg.
You cycle on well sign-posted bike paths and gravel roads as well as side roads with less traffic. Short sections are on roads with more traffic. Flat tour course. The degree of difficulty for the hiking tour is easy to medium.
