Many people who like MTB have the bike in the garage and take a walk in the nearby forest area. If you want to try something new and combine the MTB interest with a trip, it is also good. There are many nice places in Sweden that you can go to bike mountain biking, or trail cycling as you say in Swedish. You can go in the woods, over the mountains and down steep slopes. The most well-known areas in the country are Bergslagen, Dalarna and the mountains with resorts such as Åre and Järvsö.

A common variant of a bicycle trip is that you cycle a country road between different places. Between three and ten miles a day. Some book the type of bike package found at Sweden by Bike. Others plan their trip themselves and book accommodations along the way or sleep in tents. When you like MTB it may look a little different. Many people transport their bicycles with their own car to the place where they intend to cycle. Others get to the place by train or bus and rent their bicycles. No matter how you choose to do it is about getting to an area with nice trails, a beautiful mountain area or maybe a bike park.
Stay in one place and test different joints
The bike packages available at Sweden by Bike are often arranged so that you live in one place. Then you choose different routes and routes for maybe two, three days. Cycling in terrain can be quite physically demanding and it is nice to be able to get back in the evenings. Some would like to swim in the sauna or visit a relaxation area in the evening, while others just want to go to bed with a good book. Often you want to hang clothes on the dryer, maybe wash some clothes and flush the bike. Some like to live easily in their own cabin, others like to stay in hotels and have a beer on the veranda after today's exercises. At present, there are about ten bicycle packages aimed at MTB at Sweden by Bike. From Sankt Olof in Skåne in the south to Järvsö in Hälsingland in the north.

There is a large bicycle area in Närke Bergslagen Cycling with very "ordinary" cycling, but above all very very nice MTB tracks.
