Luxury Country Escape
Detailed itinerary

Day 1: Stockholm Stendörren Trosa

This morning you are transfered from Stockholm to a Stendörren Nature Reserve, considered by many to be one of the most beautiful archipelagos in Sweden because of its distinct feeling of peace and tranquillity in an unspoilt nature. Here you have the rest of the morning to hike across the many islands using their intriguing system of suspension bridges, or swim in the clean, refreshing Baltic waters. 

After your picnic lunch in the Reserve, you take your bikes and cycle along country lanes through the varied countryside; evergreen forests, meadows and lakes. You pass the impressive 17th century Nynäs Manor House where you can rest your legs and enjoy a guided tour or hike the trails in the manor house grounds. En route, you can also stop at Sandvik beach for a quick swim in the sea before you continue your journey on to the seaside town of Trosa. Trosa is visited by many Stockholmers in the summer months because of its unique location surrounded by both open landscape and another beautiful archipelago.

Day 2: Trosa → Långmaren → Nynäs manor Runnviken

After a delicious and varied breakfast it's time to collect your bicycle from the village sports shop. You now leave behind the buzz of Trosa as you head out to the Sörmland countryside exploring everything that is so quintessencially Swedish: sparkling lakes, lush forest, rolling countryside. Take time to visit Långmaren farm, a preserved farm museum set in a beautiful landcape. Just a few kilometres away is the 17th century Nynäs Manor House where you can rest your legs and enjoy a guided tour or hike the trails in the manor house grounds. Enjoy the peace and tranquility of country lanes as you peddle your way towards your first overnight destination: Runnviken Pensionat, a hidden idyll with an enviable location deep in the countryside.

Don't miss an evening stroll to nearby Uppsa Kulle, Sörmland's largest burial mound and enjoy its magical atmopshere.

You pass Tystberga church and Torsåker church, both of which enjoy lovely views across the Sörmland countryside. Plus you pass by the small beach area on Sille lake where you can take a dip before heading to your next overnight destinations - a secret hideaway with a fantastic lakeside location where you are guaranteed total relaxation thanks to the gently lapping waves and harmonic surroundings. A moment for soul searching and repose.
