Today, many of us need to relax and get down in turns. You do this best if you move outside in nature. This bike package will give you a balm for the soul in the form of a relaxing stay at Sundbyholm castle with cycling in the beautiful countryside of Sörmland. Specifically, there will be a water glittering tour around Sörfjärden, a bay in Lake Mälaren. You will spend the night in a historic suite with hot tub (or a suite with both a Jacuzzi and a sauna). In the evenings, a three-course dinner awaits at the castle, with white tablecloths and lit candles.

The area is the country's northernmost beech forest. The castle is close to the water with lake views and marina right next door. If you want to make a historical walk in the vicinity of the castle, there is an image motif on a rune carving from the mid-1000's called the Sigurd carving. Back and forth it is about half an hour on foot. It is regarded as Sörmland's largest rock carving and embodies the saga hero Sigurd Fafnesbane in his fight against dragons.


You who do not have your own bike have access to a bike at the hotel between 09: 00-19: 30, a 2020 model (Sjösala / Monark) with 7 gears. We recommend that you bring your own helmet for the best fit.

Day 1

The lakeside by bike

Prince Eugene's painting The Old Castle

You will arrive at Sundbyholm Castle in the afternoon or evening, and are welcome to check in from 15.00. If you come cycling from Eskilstuna you can cycle on a cycle track all the way out to the castle.

When you are ready, set off in a southeasterly direction along Strandleden which takes you around the shallow Mälarviken. Extensive reed areas and grazed beach meadows have given the cultural landscape a rich flora and fauna. The area is a cultural area with castles from the 17th century, large estates and farms dating from the Middle Ages.

You cycle through one of Sweden's northernmost beech forests and here you will also find Sigurd's carving, an image-rich rock carving. During the cycle tour you will pass Björsund with the small harbor, Hässelbyholm castle, Vansö church and the Military History Museum in Härad, which contains one of Europe's largest collections of military vehicles. Here you can try yourself driving a mini-car or just take a well-deserved break and enjoy a cup of coffee.

In the evening, a three-course dinner awaits in the restaurant and then you sleep like a prince in one of the charming rooms. The picture shows Prince Eugene's painting "The Old Castle".

Lovely nature, nice cycling. We bought ice cream in the small ICA store along the road, found a nice swimming area where we ate the good food bag and at Strand golf course there was both refilling of water bottles and a coffee break. The environment at the castle is very beautiful and the room / suite was really nice. We would love to come back to Sundbyholmsslott for more good dinners and great nature experiences.

The surroundings for cycling were very nice. However, a slightly unclear map and it would have been good with clear routes and how long they were.

Hi, there is potential for improvement regarding the bike maps. We received a wrapped map of the area, with tips on attractions. However, there were no planned rounds or trails. That's what you want help with, to know which roads are cozy and good for cycling. You have a map of the area on your mobile. Then when we cycled we found signs for 3 different cycle paths. It would be good if they were highlighted on the map. When we were to return, there was no trail to follow and we had to cycle several kilometers along a busy road. Here it would be good to get support to be able to choose another path.
