Luxury cycling holiday in Sweden
Description of Luxury cycling holiday in Sweden
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetAll our trips are about enjoying and experiencing the natural and cultural beauty of the region, in a respectful and considerate way. Our trips are only run with small groups, most often from two people to six people, to ensure that impact on the environment is a minimum at all times, and the most personal and rich experience can be had by all.
We are a member of the Svenska Ekoturismföreningen (Swedish Ecotourism Association) which works towards an improved tourism which protects and takes responsibility for our delicate natural and cultural environment. Our company beliefs reflect this vision.
As our trips are self-guided, we make extra efforts to provide travellers with as much information about the local area as possible, including information about bird, animal and plantlife as well as historical and cultural information. Look out for roaming red deer, fallow deer, red squirrels and the king of the forest, the moose. Birds of prey are plentiful in the region and eagles and osprey can often be seen soaring overhead. This ensures that, even without a guide, we can inform travellers about the region. With additional knowledge, travellers can go one step further to protecting the environment.
Each of our accommodation choices, Trosa Stadshotell & Spa, Runnviken Pensionat & Sund Nergården are committed to protecting the environment and cutting the use of single use plastic. Trosa Stadshotell for example take their environmental responsibility down to the last detail and even their takeaway coffee cups have paper lids.
We take responsibility of ensuring that rubbish is handled accordingly, both in the countryside and in the office, with a developed sorting system. Use of paper is spared with all marketing made online to avoid the production of own brochures. Travellers are encouraged to recycle as much literature as possible that they are provided with at the start of the trip.
Cycling puts little stress on the environment and allows you to appreciate the surroundings in a comfortable and environmentally friendly way as you follow small trails through Sörmland.
Guests are encouraged to use the public bus service between Trosa & Stockholm to avoid individual transfers.
PeopleWe wholeheartedly support the local economy - our guests want to experience the genuine region in which they are travelling, and our aim is to let it be seen and enjoyed.
Encounters with the locals is a fundamental aspect of our trips, and we therefore make all efforts to use suppliers from the area. With this aim in mind, we prefer to use accommodation that is smaller and more personal allowing an insight into the local community, including personal B&Bs such as Sund Nergården, Runnviken Pensionat and the family run Trosa Stadshotell & Spa. Our aim is always to promote and support the local community.
Each of the accommodation choices will immerse you in the real Sweden in terms of lifestyle, atmosphere and local produce. Thanks to the commitments and passion from our suppliers our guests are welcomed with a genuine experience of Sweden.
Our trips would quite simply not be the same without the support of the local community.
All meals are included in this trip and the kitchen in each of our accommodation choices strives to source ingredients from local suppliers, preferably from local Sörmland farms. Menus reflect the season all of which help to ensure that produce is travelling as short a distance as possible. Runnviken Pensionat prides itself on growing many of its own ingredients, keeping food miles to an absolute minimum.
