If you turn west at Stenåsa, after a few kilometers you will reach a statue (a staircase over a courtyard) where the "Great Alvar Round" begins. Via Frösslunda you come to Ekelunda. The trail goes on an old road and the standard is simple. It is marked with the stone cairn, and at the stone walls are wide statues set up so that one can easily travel by bicycle.

Day 8:

Borgholm Mörbylånga

Today the bike ride to Färjestaden with the gigantic Öland Bridge as its closest neighbor. The fastest is to cycle on national road 136 to Glömminge. However, it is sometimes heavily trafficked, so a better way is, at least during high season, to take the cycle route to Öland Airport and from there to Glömminge via Räpplinge, Sättra, Dyestad and Gillsättra. The trip goes on small roads through a distinct agricultural landscape with pastures and lush deciduous forests.

In Glömminge, take the national road 136 and continue down towards Röhälla near Kalmarsund. You pass the Öland Zoo and the bridge that crosses the entrance to the Öland Bridge. Then you are in Färjestaden, Öland's largest urban area with just over 6,000 inhabitants. From there there is a nice cycle path to Mörbylånga which is the final destination.

Breakfast
