In western Uppland you will find an area with the poetically sounding name Fjärdhundraland. The big city in the area is Enköping. Here there is very beautiful nature to enjoy during the bike rides. In the spring, the purple backsips of the nature reserve Vånsjöåsen and you who want to see the king of the Swedish forest will only have to visit Gårdsjö Älgpark.
