With its mild climate and easily accessible terrain, south Sweden is ideal for cycling.
In the forests of Småland in the north, on the coast in Blekinge and Skåne in the south – the Sydostleden trail offers you pure and varied nature everywhere. From Växjö to the coastal town of Simrishamn, the Sydostleden runs 270 km through beautiful countryside.
Along the way there is the extensive forest and lake landscape of Småland, the interesting coastline in Blekinge and the fine sandy beaches of Skåne. With your bike, you'll be on mainly on car-free or low-traffic roads and well-paved forest and country lanes.
Nature, culture, history: Along the Sydostleden you will get a varied picture of southern Sweden - whether you want to master the whole route at once or in several stages. The towns Växjö and Sölvesborg, as well as the picturesque villages Brösarp and Kivik, are particularly worth exploring. Along the way, especially in Blekinge and Skåne, there are also excellent restaurants.
