Kattegattleden is a 390 km-long cycle path along Sweden?s west coast, from Helsingborg in Skåne, through Halland, to Gothenburg. The trail is split into eight relatively easy-to-cycle stretches, and whether you intend to tackle it in its entirety or choose just a stretch or two, you will encounter beautiful views and memorable experiences.

Sandy beaches, cosy towns and delightful dining

You will bike through beautiful coastal scenery near lovely sandy beaches and gorgeous viewpoints, and pass through picturesque fishing villages and cosy towns. Hungry for a snack or a meal? At cafés, artisanal bakeries, farm shops and restaurants along the way, you can stock up on energy and try local specialties. When you get tired, there are plenty of accommodation options to choose from – everything from hotels and spas to campsites and B&Bs. 

Easy and free

The trail offers a relatively easy and universally enjoyable ride. It is well sign-posted, with plenty of good services and transport connections along the way. Thanks to the proximity of train stations along the trail, you can opt to travel some stretches by train with your bike – or why not book a service like luggage transport, rental bike delivery, or a fabulous package deal that includes accommodation and food?

Cycling is freedom! From the bike saddle, you can experience the Kattegattleden while constantly breathing in the scent of the ocean. You can cycle the trail year round, but prior to the cycling season, 15 April to 15 October, the path is checked and quality assured. 

Come give the “Cycle Route of the Year in Europe” a try!

Kattegattleden opened on 6 June 2015 and is Sweden’s first national tourist cycle route. Offering world-class cycling, fantastic dining experiences, beautiful views and the scent of the sea and beach – perhaps it’s no surprise that Kattegattleden was named the “Cycle Route of the Year in Europe” in 2018!
