Ride a bicycle through the most picturesque areas of Lysekil, which encompass the unspoiled coastline of a surrounding nature reserve and the well-preserved Old Town.

This active adventure departs right from the pier, where you will begin bicycling along the waterfront. It’s an ideal mode of transportation because it allows you to experience the town on a more intimate level. Since first being settled as a fishing village in the 1560s, this part of southwestern Sweden has been associated with the sea. Fishing is still a robust industry as reflected in Lysekil’s coat of arms, which is adorned with two fish.

Before long, you will ride into the Stangehuvud Nature Reserve, a pristine tract of land along the sea. The terrain hasn’t changed for centuries, other than the slow erosion of the rocky shoreline from the elements. The huge granite boulders are smooth, often topped with small pools in the depressions, and not too difficult to negotiate, as you will see by continuing on foot. While stopping for coffee and a light snack, you will hear about the history of fishing in Lysekil and see where Swedish stonemasons once quarried rock along the coastline.

Returning to your bicycle, you will ride back to Lyselkil to explore the 200-year-old Gamla Stan or Old Town. It’s a wonderful setting of narrow alleyways and colorful wooden houses. Being rather flat, this area is also easy to ride through. Afterwards, you will bike back to the pier where your tour concludes.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 90-minutes of biking that covers 3 miles of uneven, asphalt and gravel surfaces. There is also a 20-minute guided walk along cliffs. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests or those with mobility concerns. Participants should be in good physical condition. Comfortable clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; and flat shoes with a closed-toe are recommended.
