One of the greatest advantages of cycling is the fact that you move at the ideal pace to both appreciate the countryside up close and to cover considerable distances in a day, simply allowing you to see so much.
You do not have to be an expert on the bike either. The cycling takes place either on quiet country lanes or off-road on good quality paths. We provide you with mountain bikes with hybrid tyres because the terrain is mixed allowing you to pick up some speed on the tarmac as well as be able to competently handle the mud and stones of the rougher off road. The terrain is undulating with few steep and challenging hills. Please note though a certain degree of fitness is required to complete these trails.
The trips are also put together in such a way that many interesting sights can be visited en route, including magnificent castles and palaces, charming Swedish villages and historical Viking sites. The trails take place in the county of Sörmland and Stockholm archipelago. Sörmland is a region noted for its beautiful nature with countless lakes, endless forests and mile-wide views across open landscape and open sea. The county lies just to the south of Stockholm and is perfectly suited for those of you looking to escape the buzz of the city and experience the peace and tranquility of Sweden’s much admired countryside.
The Stockholm archipelago is an exceptionally beautiful and unique archipelago with some 24,000 islands lying right on Stockholm’s doorstep. Stretching some 80km east of Stockholm deep into the Baltic waters, it was formed during the last Ice Age and is today considered to be one of the world’s natural wonders.
