Overnight place: Malmo

From vibrant Malmö to quieter Lomma, where the newly built harbor area combines with old houses on cobblestone streets. There is also a winery with its own production and farm shops with fair trade and ecological offers. (Can be shortened to 57 km if you take the train from Landskrona to Helsingborg) On the way to Landskrona you will cross open countryside with beautiful sea views and nature. Once in Landskrona you will find a wealth of art exhibitions and theater performances throughout the year. In addition to the cultural offerings, history and art exhibitions, you will also find beach life here. Take your bike on board and take a detour to the island of Ven, where you can enjoy the tranquility, beautiful scenery and fantastic food from the local farm shops. From Ålabodarna in the north you soon come to Borstahusen, which is an idyll in itself! This old fishing village from the 18th century has its own fish smokehouse. Here's a look at Ven! The hilly and beautiful landscape on the slopes of Glumslöv is hard to miss and makes you think of Tuscany. Just before Helsingborg you reach the picturesque fishing village of Råå. The stage ends in Helsingborg, a continental and lively city with a cozy city center.

Overnight place: Helsingborg

This part of the Kattegattleden offers a beautiful coastal tour with breathtaking views of Øresund and the Danish Zealand. You start your journey in Helsingborg, passing Sofiero Castle with its stunning garden, voted the most beautiful in Europe in 2010. The route continues up to Höganäs and out into the beautiful, rocky landscape of the Kullahalvön Peninsula. At the extreme tip of Kullahalvön is the Kullaberg Nature Reserve. If you have time to detour off the trail, it's worth a visit. If you keep driving you will soon reach Höganäs, where farm shops and tasty food are a trademark. Some of Skåne's best vineyards are also located here. If the weather permits, you can stop and enjoy a picnic lunch along the way.

The tour continues around the beautiful, dramatic peninsula of Kullahalvön to the 500-year-old town of Ängelholm, your destination for the day 62 km.
It is possible to shorten the route to 46 km by leaving the path and cycling about 10 km on a quiet side road between Höganäs and Jonstorp.

Overnight place: Ängelholm

From Ängelholm, Kattegattleden continues along the coast before branching off and taking you across the peninsula into the heart of Bjäre. The climb is gentle at first but soon becomes steeper. You now enter a modern agricultural environment and gradually reach the small-scale farming landscape typical of Bjärehalvön, which has been characterized by livestock since prehistoric times. After an exciting ride over the ridge, the route ends in the entertainment metropolis of Båstad. A few kilometers after Båstad you and your bike take the train to Halmstad. A total of 60km. (41 km if you take a shortcut across the Bjäre Peninsula)

Price for adults + bike, about 10-20 EUR. The trains run regularly. Bicycles depending on the space available on the train.

If you want to travel the entire route from Ängelholm to Halmstad without a train, the total distance is 94 km, or 76 km if you take a shortcut and skip the Bjäre Peninsula.

After Båstad, the route runs along one of Sweden's longest sandy beaches and then turns inland to the Gullbränna and Tönnersa nature reserves. Shortly thereafter you will reach Halmstad and the route will take you through the city centre.

Overnight place: Halmstad

From Halmstad we continue west to one of the west coast's most popular beaches, Tylösand, followed by the beaches of Frösakull, Ringenäs and Vilshärad. After that, the road turns east and connects with the Kustvägen, the coastal road. On the way you will pass several beautiful nature reserves with unique salt meadows both before and after the charming village of Steninge. Near the Steninge beach, the landscape changes from barren and rocky to a lush agricultural environment, which takes you to Falkenberg. From Falkenberg you take the train to Varberg, where you will spend the night.

Overnight place: Varberg

North of Varberg the landscape changes - sandy beaches give way to rocky cliffs and the first islands such as Getterön, Balgö and Vendelsö appear. Further on you reach a quiet stretch along the sea and the beautiful beaches of Åsa. Further up the route we recommend a short detour to Tjolöholm Castle, Sweden's only Tudor castle, before continuing to Kungsbacka, the last stop for today and one of western Sweden's largest trading centres.

It is possible to shorten the route to 50 km by cycling from Varberg to Åsa + by train from Åsa to Kungsbacka.

A nice detour from the official Kattegattleden trail is the bike ride to Fjärås Bräcka, famous for the 100 standing stones on the Li burial ground. The route continues on small roads along the fields and horse pastures until you reach Kungsbacka. This route is not signposted so you need to check the map or follow the gpx track.

Overnight place: Kungsbacka

This last section of the route leads along the Kungsbacka Fjord back to the sea. You pass the small coastal village of Särö, where royal society and Gothenburg society met for pleasure in the early 20th century. The trail continues along cliffs, lush forests, bays and small harbors that offer plenty of opportunities for swimming or relaxing. As you approach Gothenburg city center, you'll pass Nya Varvet and the Klippan cultural reserve and continue along the Göta älv to your destination: the Gothenburg Opera House and the Lilla Bommen harbour. Welcome to Gothenburg!

63 km. It can be shortened to 41 km by leaving out the Onsala Peninsula.

Overnight place: Gothenburg
