cycling on Öland

When cycling on Öland, it is good to have plenty of time, but not because it is exhausting. On the contrary. The small roads almost lift you through the landscape and you can put your energy into really enjoying the unbeatable views, all the sounds and smells. You will probably also want to take a break at the farm shops, cafes or restaurants you cycle past, so take your time.

All around the island there are fantastic cycle paths with routes suitable for all cyclists, everything from nice forests for Mtb to the Ölandsleden which winds along the entire island. Öland is simply made to be experienced on two wheels, so bring your own bike or rent everything you need on site. Here we recommend some of Öland's best cycling routes.

to think about before the cycling holiday

1. The right clothes and a good helmet
The weather can change in Sweden and go from sunny to rainy to windy depending on where you are and what time of year you ride. Bringing an extra wind or rain jacket can be good. If you are going to cycle slightly longer distances over several days, a pair of cycling pants and cycling shoes can be a good investment that will make your cycling extra pleasant. Helmet is a matter of course!

2. Check your bike
Check that there is enough air in the tires and that the tires are not worn. Make sure the chain is lubricated and the brakes are working properly.

3. If you get a puncture
Changing a tube if you have had a puncture is not that difficult, as long as you are prepared. Be sure to bring a small saddle bag with an extra hose, tools and pump so you don't have to stand around waiting for help.

4. Pack appropriately
Don't bring more than you need. If you are going to ride for a few days, there are good bags that can be attached to the bike, but keep in mind that a lot of packing makes the bike unnecessarily heavy to ride. Feel free to pack swimwear and a towel, because you will pass many bathing spots along the way.

5. Finally
Plan your route in advance, take your time, ride together and have fun! Also, don't forget to take many breaks and coffee stops along the way, there are plenty of cafes and nice rest areas on Öland!

love Öland carefully

It is a privilege that we get the opportunity to take part in the changing nature on Öland and get close to it, even if it is protected nature. But with freedom also comes responsibility. Nature on Öland is fragile and many areas are valuable for the ecosystem. That's why we love Öland in a careful way so that we can also take part in unique nature experiences during the four seasons in the future.

Thanks to the public right, we can move freely in Swedish nature. But what does the public right mean, what can you do and what must you think about? Read more about it here.
