The Småland forest countryside attracts both Swedish and foreign cyclists. You understand exactly why when you experience this bike package. This includes fishing lakes, the proximity to the Kingdom of Glass, tranquil nature and meandering small roads with a nostalgic atmosphere. The apple juice is homemade and the breakfast eggs are from the farm. The starting point is the small living glass village of Målerås and then it carries off towards Ödevata Gård where you spend the night. A charming and sustainable way to get to know Smaland at its best. 

The cycling gives you a basic course in the landscape of Småland. You become acquainted with classic glassworks communities, old churches, protected oak trees and home-built museums. The roads take you back in history and you experience the forest countryside from the "inside" in a way that is almost only possible when cycling. When you reach the final destination, a really nice stay awaits. Ödevata Gård is a well maintained oasis with farm hotels, conference activities and nature activities. It is also a place that inspires a sustainable lifestyle. Here you can visit the kitchen garden, visit the farm animals and go down to the jetty.

Day 1


Ödevata farmhouse entrance

You start the day in Målerås and aim for the first stage goal called Koppekull. The next destination on the trip will be Gullaskruv, which is an old glassworks society. You continue the bike journey and can visit Hälleberga church. Maybe you'll find yourself in the shade of the protected Småland oaks.

The next stage goal is classic Orrefors with all that it means of glassworks history. Unfortunately, the mill closed in 2013, but here there is glassblowing in the cabin in Orrefors Park. Maybe you have lunch at the local hotel. The cycle then continues towards Nybro and Madesjö where the old church is worth a stop. You cycle past small towns like Örsjö and Toresbo before you roll into Ödevata farm, which is today's final destination.

Day 2


The glassblower Petter Jonasson

You eat breakfast made from the farm's eggs and other local ingredients. When you are ready, check out of the room and start the second day of cycling through the classic Småland forest landscape. On this day, you can choose to take a more direct route, via Emmaboda, which largely runs on asphalt roads. You cycle in Wilhelm Moberg's traker and can stop at Algutsboda church where he was confirmed.

The alternative is the Discover Tour through the station communities Eskilsryd and Örsjö and then the old Häradsvägen to Glass Factory in Boda. After a few miles you join the Direkttturen and then finish today's cycling in Målerås. You eat the picnic lunch where it suits you best. You will enjoy the evening meal at the Wärdshuset Hyttan

After spending the night at Målerås Vandrarhem B&B and a hearty breakfast, you can enjoy the fascinating spectacle that it is to see the glowing glass mass formed into magnificent crystal sculptures of various kinds. In the shop in Målerås you can buy crystal products and jewelry. The craft house houses seven local craftsmen, with everything from ceramics, sheepskin, jewelery and jam. Leather products can be found in the Leather Factory's shop.
