If you enjoy cycling, stunning nature, and tranquility, then you can look forward to a cycling holiday in northern Europe, in not one but two of the Scandinavian countries.
The natural beauty along the Union Route is truly breathtaking, and as a cyclist, you are completely immersed in the splendor as you journey along the Union Route, a signposted route from Moss in Norway to Karlstad in Sweden.
Eight days of cycling package
All eight cycling days on this trip are super exciting and full of fantastic experiences that you will carry with you as unforgettable memories. Imagine, natural beauty characterized by amazing variation that captivates you every cycling kilometer. It starts on the Norwegian coast, in Moss, at the shore of the Oslo Fjord. Then it goes through rolling landscapes, along lakes and canals, past old country houses, through forests, and vast green meadows. The Union Route is well signposted and easy to cycle on quiet country and gravel roads where moose and deer, and sometimes a fox, look up in surprise at the passing cyclist.
Great nature surrounds you, between villages and cities whose names sound familiar to Norwegian and Swedish specialists: Askim with its old mining sites, the pleasant town of Mysen with the old fortress, furnished as a war museum, Faxen Lake, and Nordmarken Distillery where you definitely must taste Single Malt Whiskey.
The route never loses its natural beauty, especially as you enter Dalsland. This region, bordering Norway, is described as Sweden in miniature. This is the place to be for 'back to nature' experiences as sixty percent of Dalsland is forested, so nature is always within reach.
It's wonderful to cycle through this area at the end of the tour, the great Lake Vänern, a real highlight on the Swedish tourist map.
The Dutch company VOS Travel sells a ready-made plan for your trip. The package includes accommodation, breakfast, dinner, and luggage transport to Karlstad.
