Daily program

Day 1: Arrival in Stockholm
Take your first stroll through Sweden’s capital and explore some of the many sights and tourist attractions. In the evening, meet up in the hotel for your welcome briefing and bike fitting.
Overnight stay in Stockholm

Day 2: Stockholm – Södertälje (37 miles/60 km)
The bike trip takes you on its first day along an ancient trade route that has existed since the Viking Age, skirting along Sweden’s third largest lake, Lake Mälaren. On the way, you pass the World Heritage listed Drottningholm Palace. Here, right on the shore of Lake Mälaren, the royal family grew up. Also located in the grounds is the Chinese Pavilion dating from the 18th century.

You continue by ferry to Södertälje. At Sturehov, located in eastern Lake Mälaren, it’s time for a late lunch. Södertälje is located between Strängnäs, Stockholm and Nyköping where Lake Mälaren is connected to the Baltic Sea through the lock in Södertälje canal.
Overnight stay in Södertälje

Day 3: Södertälje – Mariefred/surroundings (28 miles/45 km)
Today you ride on small side roads to Gripsholm Castle. It houses the national portrait collection of over 4000 works that trace the portrait art from the 1400s and up to the present. The castle’s history goes back to the 1370s, when Bo Jonsson Grip built a castle on a promontory which, after several expansions became Gripsholm Castle.
Overnight stay in Mariefred/surroundings

Day 4: Mariefred/surroundings – Järna (37 miles/60 km)
Today’s tour takes you right into the middle of untouched and remote nature reserves, through the amazing scenery of Sörmland. At this spot countless rivers and lakes were formed due to vast tectonic movements. Nevertheless the altitude is never higher than 100m.

Once you have mastered the hills you are rewarded with stunning views and a long descent afterwards. Your hotel is located in the small town of Järna with its world famous Anthroposophy village with bio-dynamic gardens and characteristic architecture.
Overnight stay in Järna

Day 5: Järna – Trosa (22 miles/35 km)
Your destination for the day is the idyllic Baltic Sea town of Trosa, the setting for many films.

We recommend you try crabs, salmon or smoked sh in one of the nice, little restaurants for dinner.
