How about becoming a garden tourist by bicycle for a few days? Take a step into a climate-smart gardening experience by cycling part of the Kattegatt Trail to look at gardens. This is a bike package for those who want extra gold edge - with selected garden visits, guided tours, wine tasting and hotels with the little extra!

The tour goes from Helsingborg along a glittering sea to Sofiero for a visit to the rich park. Then you cycle through the beautiful Scanian landscape, along the beaches and fishing villages, past Krapperup Castle to Arild where you spend the night in a vineyard. Norrvikens Gardens in Båstad will be the last stop where you will enjoy an exciting history, seven different style gardens and a real taste experience. The cycling along the Kattegatt Trail is almost car-free.

Day 1

Helsingborg - Arilds Winery

The cycle tour starts at Knutpunkten in Helsingborg where you either come with your own bicycle or are equipped with 24-speed bicycles as an option. The tour begins by cycling along a glittering Öresund to Sofiero Castle & Castle Garden where Crown Princess Margareta who came from England created an English garden between 1905-1920. Lunch options are available at Slottscaféet before the journey continues towards Kullabygden.

You can take a little break in Höganäs before continuing the last bit via Krapperup Castle & Castle Garden to the lovely village of Arild and Arilds Vingård. The evening ends with wine tasting and dinner for those who want to.

Arild winery - Ängelholm

In the morning you will be served a good and nutritious breakfast before there is guided tour in the vineyard. Then the bike ride continues in the Kullabygden to Sylvia Wihlborg in her wonderful English garden at the foot of Kullaberg. Here are lots of perennials and roses in rounded discounts and hedge-enclosed rooms. You then pass through the beautiful and well-known nursery Hedentorps with a very nice selection of trees and shrubs and a cozy gift shop. Coffee at Mamsellen's Café here is a must.

The bike ride then goes on to today's final destination, Ängelholm, where check-in takes place at charming Hotel Lilton in a beautiful 19th-century building.

We are very happy with the bike ride. The only remarks we can give are the minimal space at Arild's winery (as well as a mediocre wine experience), and that bicycle logistics may be improved when visiting Norrviken's gardens (according to the program an extra total of about 1.5 km, with slopes).
