In the beautiful cultural landscape between Lake Vänern and Lake Vättern lies the legendary mountain Billingen. Here you cycle on nice winding small roads between small hills and old stone walls. The local Vallevägen has a reputation for being one of the most beautiful you can experience. Among many soulful sights are Silverfallen, which are a number of waterfalls that take turns in Karlforsbäcken and the famous and beautifully situated Hornborgasjön with all its birds. Here you have the opportunity to explore the lake up close and visit the exhibition at Naturum.

Vallevägen goes through the Västgötland agricultural landscape when it is at its most beautiful. Here are pastures, rolling cornfields and sparkling small lakes. The roads are small-scale and there are artisans to visit in the area. The cranes' dance in Lake Hornborgasjön is known far beyond Sweden's borders. There are many other bird species that are attracted to the shallow lake. On site is Naturum where you can learn more about the surrounding landscape with its plants and wildlife.

Day 1

Cycle along Vallevägen

Fredriksons pensionat

Cycling starts in Töreboda, along the Göta Canal and then goes along the Sweden Trail on smaller country roads in the direction of Billingen. In the afternoon you cross Billingen and land on the other side in the lush Vallelandskapet. Here you get close to nature, smell scents and hear birdsong. In a small area there are six nature reserves with a varied flora and fauna. It is an old cultural landscape with pastures, cairns and stone farms, groves with deciduous forest, limestone marshes with orchids, flamboyant flower meadows and tranquil fishing lakes. A real nature experience! Stay where it suits you and eat your packed lunch.

After the bike ride, a nice room awaits at the charming Fredriksons Pensionat Sjöbacka, nestled in the middle of the beautiful Vallelandskapet. Margaretha and Klas will take care of you here. In the evening, a 3-course organic locally produced dinner is served, a treat for all your senses.

After a good organic breakfast, you can explore more of the Valle area before cycling south towards the famous bird lake Hornborgasjön. On the way you pass Varnhem, one of Sweden's most fascinating historical destinations. Here you see the traces of the Christian Vikings and experience the monks' monastery church from the Middle Ages. There are also nice hiking trails around Varnhem. You eat a luxurious 3-course lunch at Löfwings Ateljé & Krog a little further south. Here you can also see more of the artist Göran Löfwing's work and take a look at the couple Löfwing's shop.

During the day there is also plenty of time to explore the surroundings around Hornborgasjön. They are fantastic and you can learn more about bird life and the special place at Naturum by Hornborgasjön.

In the evening, overnight stays await at the cozy Nästegården Bed & Breakfast. Here it is Matilda and Paul who welcome you. They have renovated their houses in an environmentally friendly, contemporary and very skilful way. It is a pure pleasure for both soul and eye. Here is the solar power that you get in the electrical outlets! In the evening there will be a light dinner. Feel free to take a short walk along the Pilgrimsleden which is right next door.

Yes, simply a great package. Some points of view: -better directions / signage in some places -good food, but not to put everything on a plate at a prepared dinner. Becoming a "mess" Agree with my sister can add that, completely satisfied and will recommend the package to friends and acquaintances, review road markings ffa day 4 after Mariestad. The service in Töreboda I give a 10. The first longer bike ride with an electric bike, will always in the future book an electric bike. Thanks
