Mälardalsleden is Sweden's oldest bicycle tourist trail and goes around Lake Mälaren. The cycle path is mostly light cycled, as it passes through the Mälardalen plain landscape. The trail connects several major cities in an attractive way such as Stockholm, Södertälje, Eskilstuna, Västerås and Enköping.
The Mälardalen Trail covers the whole of Mälardalen as far as Arboga, with connection to several boat docks with boat traffic during the summer. There are also connections to the Swedish Trail, and access to a large network of trails totaling about 800 km with many choices and alternatives.
Main Route: about 440 km around Lake Mälaren (Ekerö-Järfälla-Upplands-Bro-Sigtuna-Håbo-Enköping-Västerås-Hallstahammar-Köping-Arboga-Kungsör-Eskilstuna-Strängnäs-Mariefred-Nykvarn-Södertälje-Huddinge-Stockholm).
Note! On the map image, there is a ferry route marked between Järfälla and Ekerö, but that is incorrect. There is no ferry between these two places and the map image will be updated.
