Day 1

Forest trails in the magical Kolmården

You start in Norrköping and first cycle towards Sörsjön. This day you will get to experience magical kolmårdsskog where you will get a pulse, cycle on nice paths and see beautiful views up on mountain tops! The trails are both simple and suitable for beginners and tricky as the more experienced can handle. Sometimes you can only lead the bike if you feel insecure. You cycle mostly on paths in the forest mixed with gravel road and a shorter distance on asphalt.

When you cycle through the forest and enter Krokek, you check in at Kolmården's hostel where you will spend the night. After a full day on the bike, we recommend you to dine at Krokeks Pizzeria which is a stone's throw away.

Day 2

With a view of the archipelago

Beautiful gravel roads östergötland

After breakfast, the day starts with forest in cross country terrain of the same character as the day before. The first 20 km are in forest and then the rest is gravel road and some asphalt. After the ferry that takes you over to Vikbolandet, you cycle on fine gravel roads to the Arkösund archipelago, which is today's destination. You will pass many cool sights and we recommend you stop at Mauritzberg Castle which is located on a cliff by Bråviken overlooking the water. Along the way, you can buy locally produced ice cream at Sänkdalen's ice cream and see cozy farms with animals and much more before you arrive at STF Arkösund's hostel where you stay overnight.

Arkösund is a real gem with a magical archipelago environment and good restaurants. This day there is also the opportunity to book a paddle with a guide via Arkö kayak.

Feel free to take a short break here before you step on to take in all the power of this place. Then you will cycle on incredibly cozy gravel roads and sometimes a little tricky paths. Once in Söderköping, you have an evening of luxury ahead of you. You check in at Söderköpings Brunn where a 3-course dinner awaits. You have free admission to the SPA department to take a well-deserved rest after all the miles on the bike.
