The bike package with the little extra!

A little longer distances, a little more canal feeling and a visit to Sweden's reserve capital Karlsborg. A historical journey along the Göta Canal - Sweden's largest cultural-historical building and a visit to Karlsborg Fortress that takes you straight into the 1800th century. It is a wonderful spectacle to see life both on and next to the canal. This bike package contains beautiful bike paths along the Göta Canal and Lake Viken.
In our bicycle packages, you live at selected facilities with a good reputation. We offer Pensionat Prästgården with newly renovated family hotel rooms and Hotell Wettern which is located right next to Lake Vättern with wonderful views in Karlsborg.
