Sweden: Archipelago Cycle Adventure
Explore by bike Stockholm's southern archipelago with its more than 24,000 islands stretching 80km east of Stockholm to the Baltic Sea. With their abundant nature reserves, colourful wooden houses and sandy beaches, the islands offer exceptional cycling opportunities particularly in summer when the island life is buzzing. From Tyresta National Park where moose and deer roam freely, travel between the islands to take in the views, visit historic landmarks, swim or kayak and hike forest trails. Returning to Stockholm by boat, watch the transformation from uninhabited islands to the urban clusters of the city. At night stay in atmospheric hotels often with superb views over the islands and housed in historic buildings.
