How to download GPX files

There are two options, depending on which direction you intend to cycle, that you can download as Unionsleden GXP files, see bottom of page.

Step by step.

  1. Download the GPX file from our website, see below. Important. There are two files, one for each direction, check you download the right one so you will be navigating in the right direction. (You can reverse the direction in some apps and bike computers, in which case you only need to download one of the files.)

If you have a smartphone you will be asked which app you want to open the file with once it has been downloaded, choose your navigation app.
