With forest landscape and Lake Åsnen with its many islands as the central point, this bike package offers fantastic cycling for those who love Swedish nature. The Åsnen National Park was inaugurated in 2018 to preserve the largely unspoiled plant and animal life. Only the oak forests are worth a visit. Åsnen is a fish-rich lake that has an exciting structure with all its islands and bays. Around the lake there are many old castles and other historical attractions.

You can either cycle around the lake for four days or choose parts of the round. The "Åsnen Around" cycle path is approximately 140 km long. It starts from Alvesta and continues around Lake Åsnen. Almost half the route is completely car-free and runs on the old railway banks. The trail takes you through an old cultural village that offers nature experiences and many interesting sights.

The price is reduced by SEK 150 if you use your own bike. The price for children between 6-12 years is SEK 925 (children's bicycle is not included).
