Stockholm

Thousands of islands formed in the Ice Age, idyllic villages and fresh air characterise this beautiful part of Sweden. The city of Stockholm, built on 14 islands and connected by 57 bridges, is a stunning starting place with its cobbled streets, medieval façades and squares and buzzing atmosphere. Leave the city life behind and hop from island to island on ferries and cycle through idyllic villages with colourful, wooden houses and beautifully preserved ancient churches.

Enjoy the peace of ancient forests and the solitude of white sandy beaches and nature reserves. In between the cycling, stop off to take refreshing dips at sparkling lakes or in the Baltic Sea and marvel at the natural wonder of this amazing archipelago.

Discover why the Swedish Archipelago is best discovered by bike with our video (below) and trip report from Catherine, head of Freedom Treks, who cycled this tour in June 2017.
