The combination of physical activity, beautiful landscapes and interesting history is a good recipe for those who want to replenish new energy. The hub of this bicycle package is Wik's castle dating from the 13th century. Here you live by the shores of Lårstaviken and cycle in the area called Fjärdhundraland with all that it means of fine farms and living history. 

The environment is incredibly beautiful, and you can enjoy apple orchards and beautiful hazel groves. Fjärdhundraland is an old cultural landscape with living farms where you can buy locally produced food, have a cup of coffee or maybe buy handicrafts. Cycling, discovering and enjoying nature fulfill your days around Wik's castle and Fjärdhundraland. Here you will find really good food and a castle that surrounds you with its warmth. The vegetables, the honey you eat and the apple juice you drink are produced on the farm, which is also KRAV-certified. Wik's castle has an exciting history that you can learn more about on site. Many legends and legends abound around the castle which is known for its ghosts. In the morning it always shines in a certain room in one of the corner towers…

Start the day with a morning dip and good breakfast. It is possible to make a lunch bag with sandwiches and a coffee thermos. Before you get on the saddle, you can take a walk in the castle park and maybe take a morning dip. You can choose how far you want to cycle on today's tour, but we recommend a bike ride to Härkeberga church. The small stone church is famous for its expressive paintings from the late 15th century. It is Albertus Pictor himself who has painted them. Enjoy his imaginative motifs "The Wheel of Life" and "The dance around the golden calf".

You get around on winding small roads and old country roads. Some sections you share the road with cars. There are nice places to stop for a packed lunch. On the way home you can stop at Salnecke castle café. In the evening, dinner and overnight stay await.

Den föreslagna turen var ogenomförbar skulle hitta en banvall som ej var utsatt på den bilkarta vi fick om man inte ville cykla på 55:an. Personalen gjorde verkligen så gott de kunde.
