7 Days Guided Motorcycle Adventure in South Sweden

Toftaholm Herrgård, Vittaryd, Ljungby Municipality, Kronoberg County, Småland, Sweden

Motorcycle Tour in Sweden

If want to ride some of the best dirt roads in Scandinavia and stay at the best countryside hotels in the area, then you have found the right place. Here, you will ride single tracks, gravel roads, and go on the tarmac to relax and rest between the fun parts. If you haven't been to Scandinavia to ride a bike before, it’s time to give it a shot. You will be surprised how good the tracks are and how few are using them - you will be more or less alone there. It is a big country with a low population. You will ride along some of the beautiful 100,000 lakes in Sweden. The tracks snake through a mixture of small-scale farmlands and deep forests. Also, enjoy delicious two or three-course menu at the rewarded restaurant with a lake view.

Accommodation

You will stay at the best hotels in the area, on a twin share basis in three or four-star hotels, rewarded for their excellent meals.

Program

You will start to ride after breakfast and ride all day until late afternoon. During the days, you will stop for rest and have lunch and coffee break with cookies and water. The first day, you will ride about 125 kilometers, then it is between 190 kilometers to 250 kilometers per day. You will ride much of it on gravel roads and about 15% on the tarmac.

Day 1: Vittaryd

Magic Motor Experiences will pick you up at the airport and take you to your hotel where they have arranged dinner for everyone and give more information about the tour.

Day 2: Vittaryd - Hestra, 125 kilometers / 78 miles

After a substantial breakfast at the hotel, you will pick up your bikes and clothes. You will then practice a little on local gravel roads to prepare. You will try riding on different surfaces to do some brake and balance exercises so that you get comfortable on your own test track during the morning. Just before lunchtime, you are off. You will start with some alternate paths, gravel, and asphalt to take the ferry west to a superb fish restaurant where you will have lunch of freshly caught fish.

After lunch, you will take smaller curving roads through the forests, passing small villages where time has stood still the last 50 years. When you arrive at your hotel in Hestra, located right at the Nissan river, you will check into newly refurbished rooms. You will then go to the shooting range to clay pigeon shooting with a shotgun, a fun activity that anyone can do even if you have never held a gun before. You will enjoy a three-course dinner at the hotel, which is awarded for its good food and lovely environment.

Day 3: Hestra - Eksjö, 215 kilometers / 134 miles

You will leave from Southern Sweden ski center. Within a few kilometers, you will have tried several different surfaces which are asphalt, gravel, and even grass. Enjoy lovely roads up to Taberg hill, where you will have lunch at one of the best views in Småland. After lunch, you drive towards Eksjö, routes that will put a big smile on your face.

The roads that wind inside the deep spruce and pine forests have limited visibility with blind curves, so you need to concentrate during this run. You will arrive at the hotel, situated next to a lake. Dinner is served at the hotel, with a beautiful view of the lake. After dinner, you will go swimming in the lake, with maybe a warm up in the sauna first. You will round off the evening with some karaoke at the hotel, for those who feel in good voice.

Day 4: Eksjö - Kosta, 240 kilometers / 149 miles

You will eat a buffet breakfast and set off on lovely gravel roads. In fact, during the day, you will ride a lot on rough gravel which causes tires to slip as it is so loose. Of course, Magic Motor Experiences tries to alternate different types of gravel. The ride today is very entertaining and beautiful, the scenery is great as you ride through hilly landscapes with small farms and with farmland mixed with forest.

You will make a stop at the Katthult farm which was the main scene character Emil by author Astrid Lindgren, in one of her many famous children’s books - perhaps the most famous of her characters is Pippi Longstocking. You will continue south and the landscape becomes flatter and the roads become faster. You will follow Stångån some distance downstream and then take the bridge over it.

You are going to Kosta, the center of the Swedish Kingdom of Crystal. The Kingdom of Crystal has made blown glass since 1742. Today, you will be a visitor to some of the best utility glass and art glass in the world and will be able to go right up to the glass furnaces to see it created.

In Kosta, there is the chance of shopping for both glass and clothes in a 20,000 square meter area. The hotel has a spa and cuisine of international class and won major tourist prizes. Magic Motor Experiences has, as you would hope, access to the spa during your stay, and a two-course supper.

Day 5: Kosta - Älmhult, 190 kilometers / 118 miles

In the morning after a buffet breakfast, you will look at how to do glass blowing, a craft that requires great skill and experience. It is wonderful to see how a piece of glass becomes a work of art. Then, you will leave Kosta and drive on, down to the Blekinge and Skåne border. Initially, you are on pretty fast gravel roads, then more mixed surfaces with paths and winding roads. In this area, there are plenty of small lakes, and roads run between these through forests and farmland.

You will make a lunch stop at a restaurant to recover your energy so that you will stay alert in the second half of the day. You are approaching Carl von Linné and IKEA country now, and your hotel is beautifully located on a peninsula. You will eat dinner with a beautiful view over the lake at the hotel, where there is also free access to kayaking on the lake.

Day 6: Älmhult - Vittaryd, 220 kilometers / 137 miles

You will leave the hotel happy to run down the border between Småland and Skåne, where you will take both faster and slower routes. Some of the faster lanes have been used in the South Swedish Rally and have lovely curves where you just want to continue to turn right, left, right, and left. On the slower roads, it becomes a different rhythm and it requires a little more attention as the surfaces are shifting.

Then, you will have a picnic lunch. In the afternoon, you will drive on entertaining gravel roads through wild Småland and will eventually return to where you started your tour. You will check the bikes in before making your way to a farewell dinner at a nice place.

Day 7: Vittaryd

After a full breakfast, Magic Motor Experiences will drop you off at the airport.

Location

Sweden is in Northern Europe and is fairly sparsely populated with approximately nine million people over an area of 450,000 square kilometers. It is a modern society with high living standards. In Småland where Magic Motor Experiences has their offices and conduct their operations, there are thousands of kilometers of winding gravel roads, old paths from the past that have gotten a little bigger over time.

The roads in Småland wind through a landscape with lots of pine and some broad leaves, interspersed with cultivated areas and small farms engaged in a combination of forestry and agriculture. In addition to forest and agricultural land, there are many lakes in the countryside, 100,000 in all Sweden and about 5,000 in Småland. Very often you pass lakes and gain some beautiful views. Since the Swedish ice sheet disappeared about 9,000 years ago, there are no sharp or high mountains left. This rolling landscape is perfect for biking.

Food

You will be served six breakfasts, five lunches, and six dinners during the tour. At the hotels, you will have a big selection of their buffet, then you will stop and have coffee breaks at a nice location and lunch at a restaurant or a picnic. You will have a two or three-course menu at the hotel rewarded for their delicious meals.

Magic Motor Experiences wants you to enjoy all of your trips, not just when you’re riding. Magic Motor Experiences wants everything to be the best Magic Motor Experiences can offer – including food.
