Kattegattleden – Sweden’s first national bicycle route – is a 395 km long bicycle route with a unique, oceanside location. Follow the red and white signs marked number 1 and you will find many memorable experiences along the way.
The bicycle route runs between Helsingborg in the south and Gothenburg in the north, all the way through Halland. It doesn’t matter where you begin your adventure, because the path is easily accessible via good transport links.
Kattegattleden offers cycling tourists loads of large – and small – experiences. You will ride through fantastic coastal nature and near wonderful sandy beaches and gorgeous viewpoints. The route runs through picturesque fishing villages and cosy cities. On your cycling tour, you will pass several historical sites and interesting destinations that are all well worth a visit.
Hungry or craving a coffee? A string of cafés and restaurants line the entire route. When you grow tired, there are plenty of accommodation options from which to choose – everything from camping and bed & breakfasts to hotels. There are many spa facilities along the coast where you can find relief for aching joints and muscles, or simply enjoy yourself.
Cycling is freedom! From the bike saddle, you’ll get a chance to see and experience more while constantly breathing in the scent of the beach and ocean.
