Kattegattleden - Self Guided Cycling Holiday on the west coast of Sweden

Voted Cycle Route of the Year in Europe 2018!

Kattegattleden – Sweden’s first national bicycle route – is a 395 km long bicycle route with a unique, oceanside location.

The route runs along the west coast between Helsingborg in the south to Gothenburg further north.

You’ll ride through fantastic coastal nature, overlooking wonderful sandy beaches and gorgeous viewpoints. The route runs through picturesque fishing villages and charming cities and you will pass several historical sites and interesting destinations, all well worth a visit.

Cafés and restaurants are lined up through the entire route so you will never have to ride hungry.

You’ll bike mainly on paved cycle paths, but also some gravelled sections. Some parts are also on minor roads with only a little traffic.

We have our own fleet of rental bikes. You can choose between comfortable touring bikes, e-bikes or gravel bikes. More info about our bikes on this link: Bike rental

5/5
Kattegattleden great experience

We decided to do this trip one week before starting and Gunnar did a great job with the management of our holidays. Everything was very well organized and we didn’t have anything to worry about.
Kattegattleden is a lovely route, we were really lucky with the weather and we had an excellent time in Sweden. Thank EverTrek to make it possible!!!

Kattegattleden north to south

Highly recommend EverTrek. We rented bicycles, booked accommodation and opted for the luggage transportation. Gunnar is super friendly, helpful, quick to respond and tailored our Gothenburg- Helsingborg trip exactly to our needs. Great quality gravel bikes. Luggage was always there upon arrival. Upon departure we noticed our Thule trailer couldn’t attach to the bikes, which Gunnar solved within 30 min by buying a different hub at the local bike store at no extra charge. Had the weather been better I would have rated six stars.

EverTrek were incredible to work with

Gunnar and EverTrek were incredible to work with. From the start, they were answering our questions in detail & right away. During our tour they were always available, fun to work with, and went above and beyond for us. We received incredible value for what we paid, the accommodations were a ton of fun and included a lot of local culture which we liked. Gunnar even took the time to make sure we hit every highlight along the way and it made our trip really special. As someone who has used almost a dozen tour companies in my life, I would rate these guys first and will be using them again.
