Köttbullar, elks, Astrid Lindgren – who doesn't associate these things with Sweden? The country of unending forest and lakes has even more to offer. On this cycle tour along one of Sweden's biggest lakes you will discover the capital city of Stockholm and its surrounding areas. Cycling through varied countryside, you almost always have views of the water – either one of the many lakes or the sea. Following the traces of Swedish history from the Vikings to the present day, there is always a lot to discover: Drottningholm Castle and Stockholm's parks. Small towns such as Mariefred and Trosa and the idyllic expanse of Sweden.

Day 1: Individual arrival in Stockholm

Sweden's capital, also known as the Venice of the North, is the start to your tour. Idyllic countryside, varied cuisine, wonderful cultural events – the Swedish metropolis has so much to offer to every holidaymaker. The historic quarter, rich in history, with its royal palace, forms the heart of Stockholm. You are provided with information about the tour and your bike in the evening.

Day 2: Stockholm – Södertälje, approx. 60 km

At the beginning of your bike tour you will be cycling along Lake Mälaren to Södertälje. Sweden's third biggest lake is a popular place for rest and relaxation among the locals. One of the lake's many islands is Drottningholm Castle. Passing meadows and fields you continue to the small town of Södertälje which is located on the canal between Mälaren and the Baltic Sea.

Day 3: Södertälje – Mariefred, approx. 45 km

Today, the banks of Mälaren continue to accompany you. Following small side roads you cycle to Gripsholm Castle. This complex was built in the 16th century by the Swedish King Gustva I Wasa and has become known in Germany because of a novel of the same name by Kurt Tucholsky. The well-known writer lived in Sweden in exile. You continue on to today's destination of Strängnäs.

Day 4: Mariefred – Järna, approx. 60 km

In the morning, you're taken to  Åkers styckebruk, where you're bike tour begins. The day is shaped by the unspoiled countryside of Sörmland: Like a picture book! Numerous rivers and lakes are here - and a few hills – but they are easily pedalled and you are rewarded at the top with wonderful views. The small town of Järna is located in the midst of meadows, fields and forest, close to the Baltic Sea.

Day 5: Järna – Trosa, approx. 35 km

Today's destination is the idyllic Baltic Coast town of Trosa, in which many of the popular Inga Lindström films were made. At the beginning of the 15th century, the village was an important trading place. Numerous low wooden houses, the promenade along the waterside and the town's  archipelago contribute to the very special flair of this town.

Day 6: Trosa – Stockholm, approx. 55 km

The last section takes you back to Stockholm. In the afternoon you can visit the southern town island of Södermalm. The former working-class district has developed into a trendy part of town, which is particularly popular among artists and students. The charm of the people of Stockholm – Scandinavian openness coupled with an almost Mediterranean relaxed attitude – is particularly noticeable here.

Day 7: Individual departure or extended stay

Your cycle tour in Sweden ends here. If you have time before your departure, you can explore the beautiful centre of Stockholm on a tour. You can visit some of the 14 islands, including the island of Djurgården, where, for example you will find the Vasa Museum and the open air museum of Skansen. If you like, we would be happy to extend your stay.
