Österlen is like another world, even though you are still in Sweden. The rolling landscape with green pastures and yellow rapeseed fields, the black and white half-timbered houses, the red poppy swaying in the wind and the blue sea in the fund, give an exotic feeling.

Enjoy the bike paradise
To cycle on Österlen is to discover. One of the great advantages is all the small friendly roads that meander through the landscape. You cycle through apple orchards, across fields and meadows. Sometimes you are met by dramatic slopes that plunge into the sea, sometimes by meadows and sandy beaches that gently transition into the waves of Hanö Bay. On your way you pass inns with good food, wineries, farm shops, cafes and galleries. For those who have cycled a bit, it might be tempting with a plentiful cake buffet - a specialty at Österlen. Hundreds of artists and artisans work in the neighborhoods, this is where the first Konstrundan was organized on Easter in 1969. You will find art, ceramics and silversmiths along the roads, as well as in the many picturesque fishing villages and villages. The Danish heritage is clear in the buildings and gives a cozy feeling.

Your base for the cycling holiday is Hotel Turistgården in Simrishamn, an old 17th-century merchant's estate that is now a charming family hotel. Here you get personal service and peace of mind. The tourist garden's beautiful Rose Garden with over 300 varieties of the beloved flower, is a visit destination in itself. These are just some of the great bike rides that attract Österlen, talk to the hotel staff for more tips.

Day 1

Welcome to Hotell Turistgården and Österlen

When you arrive at the Tourist Farm in the small port town of Simrishamn, you are welcomed with homemade fig bread. Then you can hop on the bike and take a little walk in the neighborhood. The idyllic town actually has Sweden's largest fishing port. Have a drink down in the harbor and watch the public life. The restaurants are close, so chances are you will find exactly what you are craving.

Coffee / tea and homemade on arrival
about 30-40 km
Day 2

Skillinge, Brantevik and stately medieval castle

Start the day by cycling south along the sea towards Skillinge. On the way you pass the fishing village of Brantevik, maybe this is where you stop and munch on sandwiches and coffee that Tourist Farm sent with. Skillinge you reach after a little over a mile, it is a hot day surely attracts the sea for a cooling dip.

From Skillinge you can cycle on small roads to Glimmingehus stately medieval castle. Take a guided tour and listen to entertaining stories about life in the castle and how any attackers would be discouraged. Take a swing past nearby Bolshög's small church from the 12th century. Direct the cousin back home to Simrishamn again, where you can breathe out with something good to drink in the Rosenträdgården.

Day 3

Kivik - apples and beautiful heaths

Our suggestion for this day is that you cycle north to Kivik. Turn down to Stenshuvud National Park, park your bike and hike up the mighty summit along a path in leafy deciduous forest. 97 meters above the sea you get a lovely view along the coast and out over the Gulf of Hanö. Continue on to the beautiful beach heads. After the hike you can enjoy a swim from the beautiful sandy beach. The perfect place to enjoy your packed sandwich package.

The mostly pleasant climate has made Kivik a center for Swedish apple growing. Just south of the community is Kivik's museum, here you can visit the Apple House, walk in the gardens, dine in the Kärnhuset restaurant and buy must-have from the farm shop. The old fishing village Kivik has an unusually well-preserved and maintained older settlement. A walk in the old neighborhood near the harbor is an experience. It was here that the eccentric writer Fritiof Nilsson Piraten spent the summers.

On the northern outskirts of the community lies Vitemölla Badhotell, closer to the classic bathing hotel than this one does not come. It was built in 1913 and on the glass veranda you enjoy high quality food and dream of times like moving. Continue towards Haväng and the Ravlunda shooting field just north of Kivik, here you can enjoy cycling on small dirt roads. The heath landscape is fantastic and the sea is at your side all the time. Here are also cool beech forests and here begins one of the country's longest and finest sandy beaches, the one that runs all the way to Åhus.

It was a good cycling trip. Marking of the bike paths good, it would be marked to which "place" you cycle to anyway when you come to an intersection so that you don't go in the wrong direction (we did it for some unexplained reason). Nice paved cycle paths.

We have had a good experience in Simrishamn! A cute hotel with a nice garden. A bit negative was that one room had an unpleasant "smell", so we got another room, but only for one of the nights. The bikes were not in the best shape. We rented bikes from Österlen's bike. Greetings, Kerstin Olsson.

Unfortunately our accommodation was poor, no ventilation in the room, smelled damp and was very outdated. We were very much looking forward to the breakfast as it was praised, but certainly not remarkable. However, the lunch bags that we had pre-booked were very good, so you did not have to look for a lunch place along the road (there were not many). However, the staff was very cute and made sure that you would have a good time on the trip. Fantastic cycling weather and nice days, knotted together about 100 km in two days. However, would have been nice if a comprehensive list of all eateries / cafes or other stops along the way, now it became a lot to just cycle around. But overall it was a couple of nice days!

The tourist garden is located very nicely in the middle of Simrishamn just off the main street and close to the harbor so there is nothing at all to complain about, but the cycle paths around Österlen were sometimes very bad and sometimes it was not at all then, although it was very nice to arrive at the destinations were it is uncomfortable to cycle when riding straight on the road many times, on 70 or even 90 road. It might have been extra uncomfortable for us to ride with toddlers, but I probably would not have enjoyed cycling there even without children. Extra plus was the lunch bag and thermos with coffee. It was a simple sandwich package without any luxury but it was still really nice with the lunch bag and it was very much appreciated to not have to find out lunch when you were away.
