Welcome to a package with lots of cycling and comfortable accommodation in the center of Skåne's fourth largest city. Even if you cycle, you will come into close contact with the beautiful Vattenriket with its beach meadows and forests if you choose this package. It is a so-called biosphere reserve with lots of attractions for those who like animals and plants. The package is structured so that you make excursions along four different rounds around classic Kristianstad.

A biosphere reserve aims to find ways to preserve nature while people live in an area. It is the UN agency Unesco that designates the areas that can be called biosphere reserves. In Kristianstad, there are Helgeån, Hammarsjön and widespread wetlands in the plains. The last excursion follows Linderödsåsen, which is also connected to the animal kingdom. This is because Sweden's only unprocessed breed of domestic pigs is called linden red pig and originates from the area.

Day 1

Great Water Kingdom Round

On the first day, you cycle south in the direction of Degerberga, where it can be a good idea to have an energy supplement at a suitable bar. Before that, Naturum Vattenriket in central Kristianstad is worth a visit. On the way home to Kristianstad and a haunting dinner, you largely follow the Sydostleden, which is a national cycle path. On your east side you have the beautiful Hanö Bay.

Day 2

Wanåsrundan med konst och natur

Today's cycle route goes in a westerly and northern direction. You experience railway embankments, winding gravel roads and a peaceful agricultural landscape. In some places, car traffic can be of such a nature that it is important to be careful. In Wanås there is not only a castle but also an art and culture park. The castle's oldest parts date from the 15th century and during the 16th century when the area was Danish, Swedish troops came and burned down large parts.

Day 3

Oppmannasjön and Råbelövssjön with embankments and villages

The water theme continues. On the third day, you cycle in a westerly direction and can, among other things, enjoy the mill Bromölla. Once again, it will be cycling along old track embankments with all that entails of close contact with nature, flat stretching and not so sharp curves. You will see a lot of Råbelövssjön, Oppmannasjön and Ivösjön. A gem you must not miss is Bäckaskog Castle, but beware because here the car traffic can be quite dense.

Day 4

Linderödsåsen

Prepare for views with fertile fields and clusters of deciduous trees that would make any landscape painter present the easel. You cycle in a westerly direction towards little Linderöd, which has given its name to the stately domestic pig breed. During your days you have had a lot of plains, but now you actually get to experience slopes on Bockebodavägen. Enjoy the Scanian villages and the feeling of cycling in deciduous forest.
