This cycle route takes you from the idyllic town of Ystad on the south coast of Sweden right up to the Finnish border: a distance of approx. 2,500 km. This long stretch from south to north naturally offers a rich variety of sceneries and spots of cultural interest. In the south you will enjoy long sandy beaches and the unique Baltic archipelago with its thousands of islands. From Ystad, you can take the ferry to the Danish island of Bornholm, a true cycling paradise! Green pasture land, shimmering lakes, silent forests and rapid rivers will welcome you in the exotic North. Villages and towns, including the lively capital, Stockholm (”the Venice of the North”), will now and then offer a change from the peaceful country roads.
