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
