Itinerary

Take your first stroll through Sweden’s capital and explore some of the many sights and tourist attractions. In the evening a welcome briefing and bike fitting (if booked) takes place. Overnight stay in Stockholm.

The bike trip takes you along an ancient trade route that has existed since the Viking Age, skirting along Sweden’s third largest lake, Lake Mälaren. On the way, you pass the World Heritage listed Drottningholm Palace. Here, right on the shore of Lake Mälaren, the royal family grew up. Also located in the grounds is the Chinese Pavilion dating from the 18th century. You continue by short ferry trip in direction Södertälje. At Sturehov, located in eastern Lake Mälaren, it’s time for a late lunch. Södertälje, home of Scania is located south of Stockholm where Lake Mälaren is connected to the Baltic Sea through the lock in Södertälje canal. Overnight stay in Södertälje.

Today you ride on small side roads to Gripsholm Castle. It houses the national portrait collection of over 4000 works that trace the portrait art from the 1400s and up to the present. The castle’s history goes back to the 1370s, when Bo Jonsson Grip built a castle on a promontory which, after several expansions became Gripsholm Castle. You return to Stockholm by steamship S/S Mariefred in the evening (duration 3,5 h). Overnight stay in Stockholm. 

After breakfast your bike tour ends. We are happy to book extra nights in Stockholm or Mariefred for you.

Tour character

You cycle mostly on bike paths and gravel roads as well as forest tracks and side roads with less traffic through typical Swedish nature. To some extent there are simpler trail conditions with raw gravel. Flat to slightly hilly tour course.
