Enköping municipality

Travel slowly and experience medieval churches, cafes and farm shops by bike.

Enköping is located on the Enköping river and not far from Lake Mälaren. With 24 parks to visit, it's no wonder it's known as the 'city of parks'. The area around Enköping has become known for its rich variety of food artisans, farm shops, bakeries, small-scale farms and rural accommodation. Here you will find an area with the poetic sounding name Fjärdhundraland.

There are a lot of small roads that have been there since ancient times, lined with rune stones, small medieval churches, cafes and farm shops. In short, a paradise for us who like to discover and cycle. Fjärdhundralandsleden goes between Fjärdhundra and Örsundsbro, on nice roads with good opportunities for breaks for coffee, detours or a dip. You are also close to several other destinations so you can use the trail as a base for your own route. There are also good accommodation facilities where you can store your bike safely overnight.
