The South of Sweden
Bike- and wine holiday in Southern Sweden
- 7 Days / 6 Nights
- Self-guided Tour
Your hotel is located in the center of Åhus with easy access to the city’s main attractions, like
the museum and S:ta Maria church. Optional: Guided tour and wine tasting at Åhus vingård.
Your first tour leads you through the Friseboda nature reserve and along the sea almost all the way. Once you approach Maglehem you leave the sea to cycle into the centre. We recommend visiting the café and unique mill museum Blåherremölla with scenic and culturally and historically valuable surroundings. The northern gate to Österlen is located in Brösarp, today’s goal.
Plenty of time to explore the walking trails of Brösarp, both the north and south. Walk along Österlenleden, Blåvingeleden or Backaleden and look forward to interesting flora and fauna along the way. Optional: Guided tour and wine tasting at Skepparps vingård (ca. 10 km).
18th century baroque castle Cristinehof with ecopark is awaiting you along the route to Simrishamn. Just around the corner you can visit Alunbruket, the oldest coffee house in the region. Not far away you can additionally pass by the Hallamölla waterfall with its well-preserved mill. Kivik is famous for its apples, look forward to meeting the growers and visiting various farm shops with local products. Further highlights are the Stenshuvud nationalpark and Mandelmanns trädgårdar (garden with biodynamic farming practises).
Rest day Simrishamn
Österlen’s capital Simrishamn with its pastel-coloured houses dates back to the 12th century. Explore different museums, such as the Österlen museum with information about Simrishamns history, handicraft and regional traditions or the Autoseum, one of Europe’s finest motor museums. Optional: Guided tour and wine tasting at Nordic Sea Winery.
On your last bike day we focus on local food: Simrishamn is full of cozy cafés and restaurants, Skillinge is famous for its asparagus and in Kåseberga you should try smoked fish. Above the old fishing village Kåseberga Sweden's largest preserved ancient monument is located, the Ale's stones. It’s a stone ship formed of 59 large boulders and has an impressive length of 67 m. The experience on the ridge, where the sea meets the sky is
You cycle on well sign-posted bike paths and gravel roads as well as side roads with less
traffic. Short sections are on roads with more traffic. Flat to slightly hilly tour course.
