Ekerö municipality

Cycling on Ekerö is almost unique. Few places in Sweden have such an exciting and long history. Crucial chapters in Sweden's history have been written here for more than a thousand years. The place is a green oasis, located on a number of islands in Lake Mälaren. In addition to the two world heritage sites - Birka with Hovgården and the Drottningholm area - there is a rich selection with other attractions and activities.
