In the beautiful cultural landscape between Lake Vänern and Lake Vättern lies the legendary mountain Billingen. Here you cycle on nice winding small roads between small hills and old stone walls. The local Vallevägen has a reputation for being one of the most beautiful you can experience. Among many soulful sights are Silverfallen, which are a number of waterfalls that take turns in Karlforsbäcken and the famous and beautifully situated Hornborgasjön with all its birds. Here you have the opportunity to explore the lake up close and visit the exhibition at Naturum.
Vallevägen goes through the Västgötland agricultural landscape when it is at its most beautiful. Here are pastures, rolling cornfields and sparkling small lakes. The roads are small-scale and there are artisans to visit in the area. The cranes' dance in Lake Hornborgasjön is known far beyond Sweden's borders. There are many other bird species that are attracted to the shallow lake. On site is Naturum where you can learn more about the surrounding landscape with its plants and wildlife.
The cycling starts from Töreboda through the delightful Vallelandskapet. Here you get close to nature, smell scents and hear birdsong. In a small area there are six nature reserves with different flora and fauna. It is an old cultural landscape with pastures, cairns and stone farms, groves with deciduous forest, limestone marshes with orchids, flamboyant flower meadows and tranquil fishing lakes. A real nature experience!
After today's bike ride, you spend the night at the pleasant Fredriksons Pensionat Sjöbacka and in the evening, an organic dinner awaits.
After a good breakfast, cycle south towards the famous bird lake Hornborgarsjön. On the way you pass Varnhem, one of Sweden's most fascinating historical destinations. Here you see the traces of the Christian Vikings and experience the monks' monastery church from the Middle Ages. In the church are four kings, a queen and the great man Birger Jarl with family buried, he founded Stockholm in 1252. Here you will also find Queen Kristina's favorite, Magnus Gabriel de la Gardie's grave.
The surroundings around Hornborgasjön are fantastic and you can learn more about bird life and the special place at Naturum by Hornborgasjön. In the evening, a pleasant overnight stay and dinner awaits at Nästegården Bed & Breakfast with the owner couple Matilda and Paul.
After a good breakfast, the cycling continues through the cultural landscape. On this day, you approach Lake Vänern and head to little Lugnås for comfortable accommodation and locally produced organic food. The owner couple Jesper and Pia are pioneers in sustainable housing and Green Key certified.
They have renovated the houses with recycled material and have solar cells that make them self-sufficient in electricity in summer. Here you can enjoy the tranquility, and perhaps take a relaxing sauna before dinner.
After a good breakfast you cycle back towards Töreboda. You stop along the way and eat a good lunch bag and we hope you have many nice bike memories with you home from Vallevägen and the beautiful landscape in Västergötland!
