Are you keen to cyc­le around Swe­den’s lar­gest lake? How fun. Namely, the Väner­le­den will be inau­gu­ra­ted this sum­mer. The Väner­le­den will offer cyclists fine swim­ming beaches, world-class cul­tural expe­ri­ences and exci­ting natu­ral phenomena.

The cyclists will pass cozy cafés, well-stoc­ked farm shops and eate­ri­es with White­gui­de sta­tus that can satis­fy hung­ry and thir­sty sto­machs. Around Vänern, the cyclists will pedal on sepa­ra­ted cyc­le pat­hs, low-traf­fic paved roads but also gra­vel roads that wind through archi­pe­la­go lands­ca­pes, forest lands­ca­pes and fer­ti­le farm­land. Some of the stret­ches are alre­a­dy used today as cyc­le pat­hs, other stret­ches are com­ple­tely new as cyc­le pat­hs. The trail will be approx­i­ma­tely 64 miles long.
