Further, Varberg is welcoming you with real, Swedish sheeps or the Bocksten Man, a medieval man's body from the 19th century.

Itinerary

Look forward to picturesque fishing villages and bathing possibilities along the way. Ice cream lovers are well advised to stop at the local ice cream shop in Träslövsläge. Afterwards Varberg is awaiting you with places of interest such as the fortress and the Bockstens man, also known as “Ötzi of Sweden”.

On today's tour you pass Vallda and Särö, the former playground of the ancient royal family and Gothenburg high society. Afterwards you 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 harbour to enter Sweden’s second largest city.

When in Sweden, an excursion to the archipelago is a must! After breakfast you go by boat to the Southern archipelago of the city (ca. SEK 70 (ca. 7 Euro) per person and ride, not included). Explore the car free islands of Styrsö and Donsö by bike and take a bath in the refreshing sea. In the evening you return by bike to Gothenburg.

After breakfast your cycling holiday ends. We are happy to extend your stay with extra nights in Gothenburg. 

Tour character

You cycle on well sign-posted bike paths and gravel roads as well as side roads with less traffic. Flat to slightly hilly tour course.
