With over a thousand lakes, deep forests, a rich wildlife and roads lined with flowers, this is a beautiful place to experience by bike – at your own pace. Enjoy the wind in your hair, the landscape and an almost completely paved cycle path of a total of 150 kilometers that takes you through hilly nature – without having to work too hard on the slopes.
Sjuhäradsrundan is mostly on an old railway track. This means that you will pass several beautiful train stations, old railway bridges – and sometimes you cycle above the treetops! And considering that 120 kilometers is completely car-free, this is an excellent cycling experience for the whole family.
Along the path there are several tourist attractions, where you probably want to make a stop – and enjoy. Because that’s what you do when you bike this path. Enjoys. The nature and the quiet lakes. The bike trail takes you through a total of four municipalities and you cycle through several urban areas.
An advantage of Sjuhäradsrundan is that you get start and finish the path in the same place. You start and finish in Svenljunga. We carry the luggage between the dwellings. You just have to think about bringing what you need for the day on the bike. The luggage is available when you arrive at your accommodation.
