Sweden is a big, bike-friendly country. Cycling is one of the best ways of exploring Sweden’s most beautiful waterways, through green forests, along sparkling lakes, past glorious meadows and idyllic villages. Hop on a boat trip along the way, and spend time in Dalsland, an idyllic land of lakes.
You will see Sweden’s innermost beauty by bike along the tow-paths of the Gota Canal and the small winding roads next to Lake Viken. And time to explore Lake Vanern, Sweden’s largest lake, and a few days cycling and exploring around the labyrinth of idyllic lakes an drivers of Dalsland.
Check out the floating sauna in Karlsborg, the sauna is fired with wood. When you get hot, jump into the lake, there’s an opening in the floor.
If Day 2 (29 miles cycling) is too long, hop on the Viken Snabben across Lake Viken
Stop off at Haverud along the Dalsland canal and visit the House of Handicrafts, a great place to shop for genuine local wares.

The ideal time to visit Sweden is in summer from June to August . At this time you will find most attractions including cafes and open air museums open while many flock to the north of Sweden to experience the midnight sun . In summer, the sun never fully sets in northern Sweden; even in the south, daylight can last until 11pm, and then the sun rises around 3am
The months of spring and autumn, May through June and the month of September, are almost prettier than the Swedish summers. When spring comes to the Swedish countryside, wildflowers burst into bloom after a long dark winter.
Winter is off season . However one of the most fascinating things you can experience in Sweden is to see the shimmering northern lights, and they can be viewed only in the winter.
