Superb vacation with great food, very friendly staff, comfortable beds, wonderful rose garden, good bikes, beautiful bike trails. What more could you ask for!

When arriving at Österlen, something special happens - it's as if the place grabs hold of your heart and never lets go. Exploring the beautiful landscape on a bike, with its varied nature, fills you with a wonderful energy. Experiencing Sandhammaren's long, white sandy beaches, visiting TV celebrity Karl-Fredrik at Eklaholm or stopping by an art gallery - there is so much to see and enjoy. A crucial part of the experience is also being able to relax, just be, listen to the sea, chat and enjoy the food. Simply living.

Hotell Turistgården in Simrishamn offers accommodation with a unique 18th century atmosphere and personal service that creates the conditions for relaxation. Don't miss the chance to visit the beautiful Rose Garden, which contains over 300 different types of roses and offers a scent experience beyond the ordinary.

During your cycling days, there are countless sights and enjoyable experiences to discover, such as art, beech forests, restaurants, and historical landmarks. Each day includes a lunch package with baguette, salad, fruit, cake, and coffee that you can enjoy whenever it suits you during the cycling excursion.

Dag 1 - Simrishamn - An Idyllic Harbor Town

Upon arriving at Hotell Turistgården in the small harbor town of Simrishamn, you'll be greeted with home-baked pastries. Then, you can hop on your bike and take a little tour of the surrounding area. The idyllic town boasts Sweden's largest fishing harbor, where you can treat yourself to an ice cream and observe the bustling activity. With restaurants located close by, there's a good chance you'll find exactly what you're in the mood for.

Dag 2 - Fishing Villages and Medieval Castle

Glimminge house

Start your day with a relaxing bike ride along the sea towards Skillinge. On the way, you will pass by the picturesque fishing village of Brantevik, where you can stop and enjoy the sandwiches and coffee that Turistgården has provided. After a bike ride of just over 10 kilometers, you will reach Skillinge. On a warm day, the sea is sure to tempt you for a refreshing swim.

From Skillinge, take the small roads to the impressive medieval castle of Glimmingehus. Take a guided tour and listen to entertaining stories about life in the castle and how potential attackers were kept at bay. Don't miss the nearby Bolshög's small church from the 12th century. Then it's time to head back to Simrishamn, where you can relax with a drink in the Rosenträdgården at the hotel.

Dag 3 - Kivik - Apples and Beautiful Heaths

Turistgården Österlen

Our suggestion for the day is to head north to Kivik by bike. Take a detour to Stenshuvud National Park, park your bike and hike up to the mighty peak along a trail surrounded by lush deciduous forest. At 97 meters above sea level, you'll get a magnificent view of the coast and Hanö Bay. Continue on to the beautiful sandy beaches. After the hike, you can enjoy a swim from the beautiful beach, which is also a perfect place to enjoy your packed lunch.

The mostly pleasant climate has made Kivik a center for Swedish apple cultivation. Just south of the village is Kivik's cider mill, where you can visit the House of Apples, stroll through the gardens, dine at the Kärnhuset restaurant, and buy cider from the farm shop. The old fishing village of Kivik has unusually well-preserved and maintained older buildings. A walk in the old quarters near the harbor is an experience. It was here that the eccentric writer Fritiof Nilsson Piraten spent his summers.

In the northern outskirts of the town is Vitemölla Badhotell, closer to a classic seaside hotel you can't get. Built in 1913, you can enjoy high-class food on the glass veranda and dream of times gone by. Continue towards Haväng and the shooting range Ravlunda just north of Kivik, here you can enjoy beautiful cycling on small gravel roads. The heath landscape is fantastic and the sea is always by your side. You cycle through refreshing beech forests and soon reach one of the country's most beautiful sandy beaches, which stretches all the way to Åhus.

Dag 4 - Deers and Bathing

Enjoy a delightful bike ride to the beautiful beach of Gyllebosjön, surrounded by lush beech forests and natural pastures. Here, you can explore the ruins of a castle from the 16th century and a castle from the 19th century. The area is characterized by varied landscapes, with the transition between the flatland in the south and the forested slopes of Linderödsåsen in the north. Nature lovers can discover a lot, such as large deer enclosures and scenic hiking trails.

Dag 5 - Experience Nature Up Close

On this day, we suggest that you pedal north towards Rörum. Here, you can visit the Mandelmanns Gardens, an organic farm that combines agriculture and forestry. The Garden Kitchen serves food and refreshments while the farm shop offers seasonal vegetables and fruits. For a taste of authentic French country charm, visit the French Creperie in Rörum, which serves dishes made with locally sourced ingredients from Österlen. Then continue your excursion to the stunning beech forest at S:t Olof. Along the way, you'll pass by fields with horses, sheep, cows, and chickens, and enjoy the beautiful rural landscapes of Skåne.

Dag 6 - Time to Head Back Home

Fantastic accommodation and great service from all staff. Good breakfast buffet with many options to choose from. The lunch packages that we got on our bike tours were generous and lasted all day.

We are generally satisfied except that the bikes could be a little better and with 5 or 7 gears.

We had great days even though the weather did not really stand up to us. The accommodation was central and good. Magnificent breakfast! The packed lunches were large and therefore difficult to eat completely. The salads were fresh, but it would have been fun with a little more variety. The suggestions for day stages were available to search in a folder. They could easily have been handed out with the map to have their own copy. Also a little more info about current opening hours at various places to visit. Much was shut down for the season. But as a whole we were very happy with our days and had many great experiences.

The bikes weren't the best, so the regular bikes! Only three gears heavy when it was uphill. They should be improved. It would be perfect on the five-day trip to move to another hotel halfway through the trip. There can be many cycle trips to cycle back and forth.
