Enjoy archipelago life and the beautiful oak gardens. Experience the wings of history and today's folk life in cozy Kristianopel. Experience the feeling of cycling between the islands in the Karlskrona archipelago and between quiet fields and small farms.

In this bike package you get to experience a sandwich table of everything that the southeastern part of Sweden has to offer in the form of views, taste experiences and historical adventures.

NOTE! Arrival and departure is not possible on Sundays due to the bicycle rental being closed (does not apply to those who bring their own bicycle).

Due to Covid19 restrictions, the archipelago boats can only bring two bicycles per trip. With three or more participants, the organizer tries to find other solutions and you are told what opportunities there are.

Day 1

Cycle on the archipelago island of Aspö

You arrive in Karlskrona, which is an exciting and beautiful city to discover for young and old alike. The city is included in UNESCO's list of indispensable world heritage due to the city's structure being an exceptionally well-preserved example of a European war city. Here you will find, among other things, the rope track from the 1690s, one of the city's oldest preserved buildings and Sweden's longest wooden building (300 meters long). When you feel like it, take the road ferry to Aspö - a "real" island, about 25 minutes out in the archipelago.

At Aspö you can visit charming cafes and galleries. There are also country shops, a kiosk and the opportunity to ride Icelandic horses - or just enjoy the sea and all the swimming opportunities. If you want to have dinner in a beautiful place, we recommend a visit to Drottningskärs Kastell from the 17th century, which with its thick walls, moat and cannons, stirs the imagination. You spend the night at Aspö Lotstorn - an archipelago hotel with breathtaking views of all four lines of weather. The hotel, an old lot tower from 1945, has five floors and is about twenty meters high and from the lookout room on the top floor you can see beautiful days all the way to Utklippan, the outermost island in the Karlskrona archipelago.

Day 2

Discover Tjurkö, Sturkö and Senoren

After breakfast at the hotel, take the ferry to the island of Tjurkö on the other side of the strait. From Tjurkö you should go to Sturkö and then on to the island Senoren. The Senor is connected to the mainland via the Möcklösund Bridge which is an attraction in itself with its 18 meter free sail height. At the bridge bracket you will find a serving and farm shop. Don't miss the sweet strawberries and the delicious fresh potatoes when it's the season for it!

The island of Senoren, whose agricultural landscape is beautifully framed by lush greenery, offers plenty of small roads that meander through the island and are perfectly designed for beautiful bike rides. On the island you will also find the fine swimming resort Sandvik, the Viking village Valshall and a country shop. Overnight stay in a cottage on Senoren.

10-30 km
Day 3

Bike to picturesque Kristianopel

After a good breakfast, today's bike ride goes north towards the picturesque village which in the 1600s was Denmark's southeast most outpost: Kristianopel. The bike ride here goes partly through the hinterland and the smaller roads you cycle on are bordered by agricultural landscapes, oaks and meadows. Once at the headland in Kalmarsund where Kristianopel is located, you can enjoy a different place.

Here, the wings of history blend with seagulls' shrines and children's laughter, and here you can enjoy the city's foremost features such as the roses in all its forms, the ring wall, the church and the cozy harbor where you see beautiful, clear days all the way to the lighthouse "Långe Jan" on Öland's south headland. In the immediate area there are a number of farm shops with local delicacies in the range and here are several different places to swim. The water is usually warm until well into September and during high season, among other things, historical walks are organized. Overnight at Kristianopel's inn

Breakfast

Day 4

Cycle to Lyckeby through scenic scenery

After a good breakfast, the bike ride continues through Blekinge's scenic fields and pastures where books, chestnuts and walnut trees grow. You mostly cycle on forest and village roads to Lyckeby, one of the oldest settlements in Blekinge that previously provided Karlskrona with flour and water. Then the place was called Lyckå and then became a Danish market town. The once fortified castle is now a worthwhile monument in the form of a beautiful, medieval ruin but worth seeing is also the Kronokvarnen, the Lyckeby Bridge, and the Lyckeby source. Overnight stay on the outskirts of Lyckeby.

Breakfast
40 km
Day 5

Karlskrona and homecoming

After a good breakfast, the cycling adventure ends with a short trip to Karlskrona. On the way you can stop in the nice hometown park Vämö but otherwise there is very exciting to see in Karlskrona, including the Marine Museum, the Porcelain Museum and the Bilmuseet to name just a few final, pleasant excursion destinations.

Breakfast
5 km

Nice trip with good roads to cycle on with the exception of some shorter distances on the country road with a lot of traffic. Unfortunately, much was closed, eateries and sights week 33 as we cycled. Suggestion is to turn the round so the long distance comes first and the nice coastal, including the islands comes last. Good treatment and service by Maud on 3 steps.

The cycling experience itself was a five but the directions were not so good in some places, especially to and from Kristianopel. We cycled wrong a couple of times from Kristianopel to Karlskrona. We also missed that Senoren when we arrived the same day we received information that we were going to Sturkö camping instead of Senoren. On Sturkö it was a bit difficult to find food for the evening. Aspå and Kristianopel, on the other hand, were fantastic places. To end with the last night in Karlskrona was great. We can imagine doing this again.

Nice areas, and cozy accommodations. Aspö a small island for cycling experience. Did not get Tjurkö with us as it was unclear with boats there. Nice day between Senoren and Kristianopel, but too little cycling along the coast. Kristianopel beautiful !!!. Difficult to follow the map between Kr.opel-K.krona, want better signage of the route. Some roads were barely bikeable with our bikes. Total summary: Nice week with sun and beautiful weather!

Heavy bicycles, no / few rest areas or places to eat, on many stretches there were boring country roads and small roads as there was not much to experience. The ferry from Aspö took only a few bikes so you had to worry about whether you got a seat or not. The accommodation was great good breakfasts, but at Senoren it was not possible to get a place that served dinner after 5.30 pm luck that Ica existed.

Bicycle leader; bad excellent in many places. Too little along water, mostly forest. Kustvägen promised food handling etc., unfortunately most of it was closed! Difficult to find eateries along the entire route. The description of the cycling was witty and unclear. The accommodation is generally good and nice. Improvement tips; Send info well in advance and preferably printed together with tourist brochures. Blekinge needs to get better at receiving tourists😊

We would have preferred to have had our own toilet at all accommodation. On Särö, there was no opportunity to get a real dinner with potatoes, rice or pasta if you do not like Thai food. On the island of Senoren, you could shop at ICA if you wanted dinner. There they lived on a campsite that did not say anything about it. Maud on "3 steps" is very accommodating and helpful

On easily trampled Pilen bikes, stable and good, we completed our cycling holiday of 120 km with a smile on our face! Beautiful Blekinge offered the best weather and overnight stays we really enjoyed were Gästis in Kristianopel and Aspö Lotstorn. Nice welcome everywhere. Not just by the organizers. However, we share the desire of many Blekinge residents that Karlskrona municipality should build cycle paths on some heavily trafficked narrow roads! The forest road section of the Blekingeleden is also something that should be reviewed. But overall we are more than happy!

Easy to get around with the bikes on the boats between the islands. Bit cycling on busy 70-lane, which gets a little nervous when cycling with children. Advantage to book via local person (Maud on Tre Trappsteg), who had arranged very cozy accommodation along the way. Statt hotel in Karlskrona very boring in comparison, but totally okay for easy overnight. Was good to change the route on the last day to avoid the route inland from Kristianopel where, according to previous reviews, it is easy to get lost and instead stick to the coast road down to Torhamn to take the boat from there to Karlskrona.

Very nice and cozy route! Accessible except for parts of the Bleking Trail which were stony at times, but the bikes we got worked anyway for the purpose. Many restaurants and the like were closed, if this is because we cycled early in the season or the situation with covid-19 we do not know. But on the whole, VERY idyllic and cozy route that we recommend!

Hello We received very good service and service from Maud Selander, 3Trappsteg. When it comes to cycling and living, we are satisfied / very satisfied with the first three nights, ie even Kristianopel. Aspö lot tower was by far the coolest experience and the proprietor turned out to be a fantastic storyteller and guide. Use him more systematically, he would probably like it. The cycling to the Kustgården Senoren was very nice and the camping cabin as camping cabins are, quite ok. We got an incredibly generous breakfast basket there. When we were there, the Pentecostal church in Jönköping had camps for young people, which is totally ok. You can, however, wonder if it is ok that they start at 8 in the morning with warm-up music in festival volume, I would guess at about 90 dB. We were going up and away anyway, but otherwise people were sleeping. The accommodation in Kristianopel was very nice, although we had to call the host to be able to enter the room. There were keys in the key cabinets with code and everything went well, but it should be stated in the instructions that people may not be there and that you should call. The directions for cycling are not world class, but until Kristianopel it works reasonably if you have a little imagination. The trip Kristianopel - Lyckå is directly distressing with many ambiguities and direct errors in the directions. In addition, Lyckå is incomprehensible in itself. Here we have visited one fantastic place after the other and the tour ends with an obscure suburb of Karlskrona and an accommodation that is just next to a very busy traffic lane. When we got there, we decided to skip that night and cycle the extra mile to Karlskrona instead. That stop is really incomprehensible. For us, five miles is not a remarkable distance, but if that is the problem, you just draw a straight line so that the cycling goes to Karlskrona directly, or you change Lyckå to another more sensible place that is sights and scenic so that the cycling ends. in a good way. Now it became a really sad anticlimax. There will be no fives in the grades, as the final content does not measure up. Sorry, otherwise we got a lot for the money.

Fantastic nice and varied cycling. The weather, of course, contributed to a nice bike ride. However, it was a bit tricky to find the right path at some places. This tour can hardly be recommended to anyone who is not used to reading such maps or does not have GPS with them! One recommendation is that in some places, in some way, sign up with directions. Please look forward to this for next season!

A nice experience to see a bit of Blekinge from a bike. We cycled to Kristianopel the first day. Overnight at the inn which had great rooms and a nice hostess. Unfortunately there was nowhere to eat as no restaurants had opened yet for the evening season. Luckily, the grocery store was open for another quarter of an hour, so there was panic cycling there for grocery shopping. Fantastically beautiful in Kristianopel and all its flowering roses. We ate breakfast at "Sött och Salt" down by the harbor, very good and friendly staff. The next day's trip went to Lyckeby. In some places the signage was bad so there were some to cycle back a few times. Varying surfaces as we also stepped forward via forest roads on the Blekingeleden. Dip into a lake for the brave during the day. Finally arrived in Lyckeby after about 40 km and wonderful accommodation. Good dinner in the evening at a restaurant within walking distance. Next day on mother Karlskrona. We stayed in Vämöparken for coffee and ice cream. Very nice park with old houses, animals and that day flea market at the dance floor. On to Aspö for the last night on our cycling holiday. We lived in the pilot tower and it was nice with the view room at the top. Both lunch and dinner were taken at Kastellet, highly recommended. Very good food in a cozy environment with beautiful stone arches. The next day we cycled back to Karlskrona where we started from the beginning. Nice city with beautiful environments. The walk through the gravel paths on Brändaholm was one of the highlights and unforgettable.
