The Öland Bridge is 6072 meters long and was inaugurated in 1972, the bridge is no longer Europe's longest but the longest in Sweden (the Öresund Bridge is longer but also belongs to Denmark). The bike ride starts from Mörbylånga. From here you cycle along the sea to the southern end of the island. Experience Stora Alvaret - one of the world's most distinctive cultural landscapes. Mighty, desolate and dizzyingly beautiful in a strange combination.
