Norra Sörmlands Jernväg was inaugurated in 1895 and closed down in 2004. In this bicycle package, you literally cycle in the middle of the Sörmland landscape on the old railway embankment. The tour goes through magic forest and agricultural land outside Eskilstuna. The surface consists of smooth asphalt that was completed in 2018. As it is easy to find and almost no uphills, even small children can handle the cycling without problems.

The starting point for this package is Vilsta Sporthotell just outside Eskilstuna. A facility with restaurant, hotel rooms, cottages and many different activities to choose from. During the cycling on the embankment, you pass the idyll Ärla and finally arrive at Eklången where there is a swimming lake. Along the embankment there are nice rest areas that are perfect for a coffee.

Vilsta Sporthotell also has cottages for rent. For booking a bike: 016-513032 or 073-7081487.
