Cycle on the archipelago island of Aspö
You arrive in Karlskrona, which is an exciting and beautiful city to discover for young and old alike. The city is included in UNESCO's list of indispensable world heritage due to the city's structure being an exceptionally well-preserved example of a European war city. Here you will find, among other things, the rope track from the 1690s, one of the city's oldest preserved buildings and Sweden's longest wooden building (300 meters long). When you feel like it, take the road ferry to Aspö - a "real" island, about 25 minutes out in the archipelago.
At Aspö you can visit charming cafes and galleries. There are also country shops, a kiosk and the opportunity to ride Icelandic horses - or just enjoy the sea and all the swimming opportunities. If you want to have dinner in a beautiful place, we recommend a visit to Drottningskärs Kastell from the 17th century, which with its thick walls, moat and cannons, stirs the imagination. You spend the night at Aspö Lotstorn - an archipelago hotel with breathtaking views of all four lines of weather. The hotel, an old lot tower from 1945, has five floors and is about twenty meters high and from the lookout room on the top floor you can see beautiful days all the way to Utklippan, the outermost island in the Karlskrona archipelago.

Discover Tjurkö, Sturkö and Senoren
After breakfast at the hotel, take the ferry to the island of Tjurkö on the other side of the strait. From Tjurkö you should go to Sturkö and then on to the island Senoren. The Senor is connected to the mainland via the Möcklösund Bridge which is an attraction in itself with its 18 meter free sail height. At the bridge bracket you will find a serving and farm shop. Don't miss the sweet strawberries and the delicious fresh potatoes when it's the season for it!
The island of Senoren, whose agricultural landscape is beautifully framed by lush greenery, offers plenty of small roads that meander through the island and are perfectly designed for beautiful bike rides. On the island you will also find the fine swimming resort Sandvik, the Viking village Valshall and a country shop. Overnight stay in a cottage on Senoren.

Bike to picturesque Kristianopel
After a good breakfast, today's bike ride goes north towards the picturesque village which in the 1600s was Denmark's southeast most outpost: Kristianopel. The bike ride here goes partly through the hinterland and the smaller roads you cycle on are bordered by agricultural landscapes, oaks and meadows. Once at the headland in Kalmarsund where Kristianopel is located, you can enjoy a different place.
Here, the wings of history blend with seagulls' shrines and children's laughter, and here you can enjoy the city's foremost features such as the roses in all its forms, the ring wall, the church and the cozy harbor where you see beautiful, clear days all the way to the lighthouse "Långe Jan" on Öland's south headland. In the immediate area there are a number of farm shops with local delicacies in the range and here are several different places to swim. The water is usually warm until well into September and during high season, among other things, historical walks are organized. Overnight at Kristianopel's inn
Cycle to Lyckeby through scenic scenery
After a good breakfast, the bike ride continues through Blekinge's scenic fields and pastures where books, chestnuts and walnut trees grow. You mostly cycle on forest and village roads to Lyckeby, one of the oldest settlements in Blekinge that previously provided Karlskrona with flour and water. Then the place was called Lyckå and then became a Danish market town. The once fortified castle is now a worthwhile monument in the form of a beautiful, medieval ruin but worth seeing is also the Kronokvarnen, the Lyckeby Bridge, and the Lyckeby source. Overnight stay on the outskirts of Lyckeby.

Karlskrona and homecoming
After a good breakfast, the cycling adventure ends with a short trip to Karlskrona. On the way you can stop in the nice hometown park Vämö but otherwise there is very exciting to see in Karlskrona, including the Marine Museum, the Porcelain Museum and the Bilmuseet to name just a few final, pleasant excursion destinations.
