The close-knit Sörmland nature comes in close-up in this bike package that starts from Vilsta Sporthotell just outside Eskilstuna. The secret is that you cycle through the swanky landscape on old embankment towards Little Erla. Easy to ride because there are almost no hills. Continue towards Malmköping's campsite where there is the opportunity to take a dip.
Malmköping has a long history and is beautifully located in the middle of Sörmland. Here you can have a cup of coffee with some pastry or maybe visit the exotic iron museum. It boasts about 2000 old irons and wintertime is arranged something as exclusive as iron curling. In the vicinity of Malmköping there is also the Sagostigen where the young people can discover our folk tales and meet the animals on the farm. The historically interested can reach central Malmahed where the Södermanland regiment trained on exercis from the end of the 18th century until 1921.
You can choose to stay at the hostel or rent your own cabin, which you choose when you make your booking. For booking a bicycle: 016-513032 or 073-7081487.
From Vilsta to Malmköping round trip
The starting point for the bike package is Vilsta Sporthotell where you will spend the night. You either have your own bike or rent on site. When you are ready for departure you aim for the rebuilt embankment. The cycling on the track up to Erla is simple and child-friendly.
