Itinerary

Your hotel is located in the centre, not far away from the train station. In the evening a welcome briefing and bike fitting (if booked) takes place.

Your first tour starts with a transfer from your hotel in Helsingborg to Kullaberg nature reserve. There is a lot to discover! Explore one of the 20 caves and meet the animals of the forest. In the interactive visitor centre you can learn more about the nature reserve, additionally a visit of the aquarium is worth it. Enjoy some grilled sausages (you are allowed to grill your own sausages in the reserve) before you start your cycling tour along the Kulla peninsula to Ängelholm. 

By train you reach tennis metropolis Båstad after breakfast. Afterwards you cycle along one of the longest sandy beaches in Sweden (don't forget your swimming suits!) and through the nature reserves of Tönnrersa and Gullbranna before you reach Halmstad, today's destination. 

Halmstad is awaiting you with a lot of fun activities. Spend the day on the beach of Tylösand, one of the most popular beaches in Sweden. Those who love ice-cream might want to visit Ricardo, where you get delicious, Italian ice-cream and other delicacies. Additionally you can go on a Stand Up Paddeling tour or visit the water park in Halmstad (not included).
