Stockholm Loop Tour

Across Swedish History.

Sweden means blueberry pie, cinnamon buns and smorgasbord. The long history of the Vikings, Midsommar and the Lucia Festival. But also for idyllic expanses, water and untouched nature. Find out what your individual experience of Sweden will be on a cycling holiday with Eurobike. The tour takes seven days from Stockholm to Mälaren, one of Sweden’s largest lakes, through the Sörnland countryside and back to the capital along the Baltic Sea coast. Get an idea of the country of Inga Lindström, Pipi Longstocking and the Vikings.

Details about the cycling holiday from Stockholm

The fact that Sweden is an ideal destination for holidaymakers is only proven by the quality of the cycle paths and the well-developed network. The mild, not too hot summer temperatures also promise the best conditions for an unforgettable cycling holiday. For seven days you explore the green surroundings of Stockholm and of course the northern city itself on two wheels.

Highlights of the Sweden cycle tour at a glance

  • Cycling fun: The Swedes love cycling – and you can feel it especially on the well-developed cycle paths across the country. Cyclists are very welcome everywhere.
  • Stockholm – Venice of the North: As the start and end point of the tour, Stockholm scores with small cafes, green parks and typical Nordic lifestyle. The royal family’s Drottningholm Palace near the capital is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is also on the bike route.
  • Sweden’s small towns: Small towns like Mariefred or Trosa are reminiscent of the popular Inga Lindström films.

Useful information about the cycle tour in Southern Sweden

On the day of arrival you will have plenty of time to stroll through Stockholm. The next few days are filled with numerous kilometres on the bike – around 270. The daily stages are between 35 and 60 kilometres long and mostly run flat. Larger sections of water are bridged by ferry trips that take you across rivers and lakes. Thanks to the extensive tour material, which is also available with GPS data, you will be well prepared for your Scandinavian cycling adventure.

Itinerary

In the evening welcome briefing and bike fitting at our rental shop. Take your first stroll through Sweden’s capital and explore some of many sights and tourist attractions.

Your first cycling day takes you along the third biggest lake in Sweden called ‚Mälaren’ and follows an ancient trade route dating back to the Vikings. On your way to Södertälje, on the island of Lovön, you will find Drottningholm Palace, which is part of the UNESCO World Heritage. Situated directly at and overlooking the lake, this beautiful palace is the place where the Swedish Royal Family was raised. Also worth a visit is a Chinese Palace from the 15th century. The cafe in the basement awaits with Swedish waffles and is a perfect place for a rest. Onwards by ferry towards Södertälje where typical Swedish scenery with fields and forests will amaze you. Sturehof Palace is a great place for a lunch break. The small town of Södertälje south of Stockholm is situated at the canal between Mälaren and the Baltic Sea.

On quiet side roads today’s route leads to ‚Gripsholm Palace’. Also the title of a book by Kurt Tucholsky, who lived in exil in Sweden and has found his final resting place in Mariefred. Mariefred and Gripsholm Palace are two main focal points in Royal Swedish history. Onwards to your final destination for the day, Strängnäs.

Today’s tour takes you right into the middle of untouched and remote nature reserves, through the amazing scenery of Sörmland. Atthis 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 middle of the wonderful Swedish nature near the water.

Your destination for the day is the idyllic Baltic Sea town of Trosa, which is also used as setting for many movies. Finish your day with a stroll through the picturesque village and enjoy the small alleys, red houses and wonderful views on the water. We recommend to try crabs, salmon or smoked fish in one of the nice, little restaurants for dinner.

Northward bound and after a short ferry trip later you return to one of Stockholm’s many islands. Top tip: take the overground ‚S-Bahn’ to Stockholm centre and in the afternoon cycle on lovely flat cycle paths along the water to Stockholm’s Southern island of Södernmalm. In the evening experience the great variety of restaurants.

Tour Proposal for Additional Day approx. 40 km

Explore central Stockholm by bike! Today’s tour covers several of the 14 city islands including roundtrips on Djurgården island and part of the National City Park. The ‚Vasa’ museum and the outdoor museum ‚Skansen’, both situated on the island, are worth a visit! The palace and the old part of town dating back to the mid 14th century are also part of the sightseeing agenda.

On request organised guided sightseeing tours in Stockholm are possible.

Tour character

Stockholm offers well-maintained cycling paths. Outside the city you cycle on smaller roads with very little traffic, only as a bypass is cycling on roads with moderate traffic unavoidable. The terrain is rather flat on the first two days and the last day, however slightly more hilly on the remaining days.

Focuses on Nature; Charming Resort Towns of Mariefred & Trosa
The route for this tour goes through largely protected nature reserve areas where there are no man-made facilities available (benches, WCs, cafes); surface route has a lot of gravel, sometimes rough. Not much to see between towns, except for Taxinge Slott (cake castle). In Ytterjarna, the hotel promotes healthy, organic meals where a delicious dinner is offered since the nearest town is 5 kms away; peaceful surroundings. Interesting destination towns. Excellent hotels, flawless luggage transfers.

Tolle Radreise
Es hat von Anfang bis Schluss der Tour alles geklappt. Die Streckenführung ist toll gewählt, oftmals auf Schottersträsschen durch die Wälder. Die Etappen sind gut bewältigbar und so bleibt auch Zeit, um die Ortschaften zu erkunden und Sehenswürdigkeiten auf der Route anzuschauen.

Schweden ist doch wirklich immer eine Reise wert! Und erst recht mit dem Rad ist es besonders lohnenswert. Vielen Dank für Ihre netten Zeilen.

Tolle Tour rund um Stockholm
Abwechslungsreiche Tour mit schöner Landschaft und kulturellen Beiwerk; sehr schöne und außergewöhnliche, historische Hotels; Highlights waren Stockholm selbst und Mariefred mit Gripsholm; der 3. Radtag stellte mit normalen Rädern aufgrund des Streckenprofils durchaus eine gewisse Herausforderung dar.

Wie schön, dass Sie so eine schöne Zeit in Schweden verlebt haben. Haben Sie vielen Dank für dieses äußerst positive Feedback!

Sehr schöne Radreise rund um Stockholm, Organisation und Unterkünfte top
Leider konnten wir aufgrund eines Trauerfalls in der Familie nicht alle Tagesetappen gefahren, der Teil, den wir wahrnehmen konnten, hat uns landschaftlich aber ausgezeichnet gefallen, darunter das schöne Städtchen Trosa, das uns besonders beeindruckt hat. Ein Dank und Lob geht auch an Eurobike, dessen Mitarbeiter uns sehr schnell und unkompliziert darin unterstützt haben, dass wir die Reise zumindest teilweise wahrnehmen konnten! Und noch eine Schlußbemerkung: Die Landschaft rund um Stockholm ist doch hügliger, als man gemeinhin als nicht sehr kundiger Reisender erwarten würde.

Great holiday
Brilliant biking trip through Sweden. Good routes on gravel tracks or quiet roads and some lovely towns to stop over. The movement of luggage from hotel to hotel worked perfectly. The routes were easy and clear (using GPX) and we would love to do another bike tour like this in the future.

Sehr schöne Tour mit viel Natur, urigen schwedischen Dörfern & vielen Sehenswürdigkeiten
Die Rundtour ab Stockholm ist eine sehr schöne Tour für etwas fittere Fahrradfreunde, die eine Reise durch das abwechslungsreiche Umfeld von Stockholm machen wollen. Die Strecke führt über weite Felder, durch Wälder, vorbei an viel Wasser (welches auch mal zu Baden einlädt), Schlösser und andere Sehenswürdigkeiten oft mit Café, wo man meist eine reichhaltige Kuchenauswahl vorfindet. Typisch Schweden... Die Hotels waren historisch oder ausgefallen, jedoch immer sauber und gut! Die Räder waren für die Tour angemessen. Kleiner Nachteil: Die Ausschilderung auf der Strecke ist nicht immer vorhanden bzw. schwer zu erkennen.
Eurofun Touristik GmbH answered:
Vielen Dank für Ihr freundliches Feedback und Ihren Hinweis bezüglich der fehlenden Beschilderung! Wir kontrollieren unsere Wegbeschilderung so oft wie möglich, oft wird sie aber leider überklebt oder abgerissen. Da sind wir dann immer froh, wenn uns unsere Gäste darauf aufmerksam machen! Vielen Dank!
