There are many nice places to bike to in the area around Västerås. The lake is not far away and the western countryside offers its beautiful pastures and pleasant winding roads. This package combines the love of cycling on the country road with stimulation for the taste buds and local strawberries. The tour goes in a southeast direction and includes varied cycling. The accommodation is over iced with a comfortable hotel feel in central Västerås.
It's about just eight miles of cycling. In the city of Västerås there are attractions such as the Cathedral, the castle and the Vallby open-air museum. Along the way you get acquainted with the Westman landscape and can take a look at Anundshög. It is a burial mound from the 9th century that is considered the largest in the country.
Bike rental: The hotel provides simpler bicycles for loan, but if you want to rent bicycles of really high quality you can contact the company Aktiv Uteliv which is located on Björnön a bit outside central Västerås.
Västerås to Ängsö and back
This is a bit of a bike package for connoisseurs. A varied route with a picturesque destination for the day and luxurious relaxing conditions at Elite Stadshotell in central Västerås in the evening. On the way you pass Kungsbyns zoo where you can have coffee, eat and watch the animals and the stately Ängsö castle dating back to the 1100s. The goal and the turning point on the trail is Ängsö Fisk, which is located farthest on Ängsö south-east of the city. There you can have lunch at the Fiskbutiken and at Fiskarfruns Café. The route after Ängsö castle out to Skurusund is the most charming.
On the way home there are small roads that apply. You pass Ängsö golf club and Björksta among others. Back in Västerås you take a shower in the room, rest for a bit after the day's cycling and then have dinner in the hotel restaurant The Bishops Arms.
