Day 2

Scenic Mtb trails with varying degrees of difficulty

After breakfast you can choose several scenic Mtb trails to ride, with varying degrees of difficulty. The area is perfect for those who want to work out for long runs or just enjoy cycling in beautiful terrain. Some of the trails run along sandy slopes, which gives lovely and dry trails. The trails are less hilly than in Kilsbergen, but some trails pass through interesting old mining areas and historic land.

Not far from the hotel is Lerbäck's theater, with activities all year round. Well worth a visit!

The playhouse is considered the gateway to Kilsbergen. The trails meander up and up the steep slopes of Kilsberg, past old archipelagos and cobblestone fields. Here you really get a feeling of traveling in the wilderness.

Very nice luck thank you PerOlofsgården for it. You can have your husband with you as a service car. Worked well for me. And then you can be a tourist on weekdays. All accommodations were great. Nice welcome, very good food. I give PerOlofsgården the highest rating !!

A fantastically well arranged week, in addition we were very lucky with the weather. We only got a few raindrops on us while cycling. The best thing was the reception at the three homes we visited, Perolofsgården, Hallagården and Hamgården. We ate the best food at Perolofsgården and Hamgården, where a three-course dinner was served. The breakfast was also good. At Hallagården we also got the freedom to have breakfast as early or late as we wanted, when we had to pick out what we wanted from a well-stocked refrigerator. A cycling holiday well worth recommending. Lena, Torbjörn, Anette and Rune

Wonderful, relaxing holiday with lots of exercise! Good treatment in all places. The concept of two nights in each place is perfect. You can rest, exercise or be a tourist on weekdays. Transporting luggage is worth a lot. We found the package under MTB package. There were MTB trails in two of the places. Between the places, it is the road that counts. However, got a code for the app that suggested smaller forest roads if you set it on MTB. You should have your own map or enough battery for the phone if you want to take smaller routes between overnight stays. Works otherwise well with a regular bike as well.
