Kristianstad - Degeberga
The bike tour starts in Kristianstad in southern Skåne. The city has a long history and was founded after the Kalmar War in 1614 by the Danish king Christian IV. Don't miss the Naturum Vattenriket which is not far from central Kristianstad. Then you continue towards Åhus, which is one of Sweden's best preserved medieval cities with narrow alleys and picturesque half-timbered houses. Here is Absolute Home where you can learn more about the history and philosophy behind Absolut Vodka. You can enjoy genuine Scanian food at Åhus Gästgivaregård and wonderful ice cream can be found at Tre Kulor ice cream kiosk at the bottom of the dock at the harbor.
The journey continues towards Friseboda nature reserve and here you cycle along Hanö Bay right next to the sea. You will spend the night at the charming Cocoon Gårdshotell in Degeberga and have a well-composed five-course dinner in the hotel's restaurant.

Degeberga - Second room at Verkeåns nature reserve
You start the day with breakfast at the hotel, and then you head towards today's goals Andrarum and Österlen. At Maglehem, you can deviate from the cycle path on the embankment and cycle to Blåherremölla. Here you can buy homemade cakes and drink coffee in a wonderful old farm and mill environment.
For many, Brösarp's slopes are the very image of Österlen - both the north and the south - and there is much to discover here. The views are wonderful with miles of views over the Verkeån valley. Haväng is an enchantingly beautiful place where miles of sandy beaches meet heathland and rare sand steppes. Christinehofs Ekopark and Christinehofs castle from the 18th century and Hallamölla waterfall are also well worth a visit. In the evening, a delicious 3-course vegetarian dinner and ready-made beds await at Tastecelebration Residence.

After a delicious breakfast, you cycle on winding roads in the beautiful and hilly countryside with the final destination of Simrishamn.

Stop at Stenshuvud National Park and hike up to the top of the mountain with glorious views of the sea and Kivik with all apple gardens. A bit south lies Djupadal, with Mandelmann's Gardens.
Simrishamn is usually called the Austrian capital, and dates back to the 12th century. Here are picturesque pastel-colored houses with beautifully carved doors typical of the neighborhood. A little south is Glimmingehus, the Nordic region's best preserved medieval castle Glimmingehus and not so far from Ales Stones, Sweden's largest preserved shipwreck. Other places to visit are the charming fishing villages of Skillinge and Brantevik. Maybe you stay an extra night and discover the surroundings?
