As you cycle along the Coastline, you travel through beautiful coastal environments and thousands of islands. The trail extends from Öregrund in the north to Västervik in the south. There are also several routes that go out to the Baltic Sea.

The coastline includes the Roslagens, Stockholm, Sörmland coast, Arkösund, S: t Annas, Gryts and Tjusts archipelagos. There are several possible starting and finishing points. There are also great opportunities to combine bike and boat trips.
Main Route: Approximately 560 km (Öregrund - Stockholm - Västervik)
Alternative: Approximately 460 km (supplementary stretches out into the archipelago and the islands)
Tip! Instead of taking a taxi boat between Grimsta and Oaxen, Nynäshamns Tourist Office recommends cycling from Mörkö and then taking the ferry (free) across the Skanssundet. The road from Skanssundet to Kagghamra is narrow but very beautiful. Along the way there is a nice country shop and on Mörkö there is a tavern.
Tip! The coastline goes along route 283 between Grisslehamn and south. It is narrow and quite busy and there are two better options. Old Grisslehamnsvägen (some gravel but nice) and the road on the eastern side of Väddö.
