On two wheels through dalsland
Biking is fun!
If you combine it with vacation and new beautiful scenery you will make biking even more fun. Dalsland is made for adventures on two wheels. Our rural countryside with its winding gravel roads will take you through forests, across plains and alongside lakes. These roads are connected to villages, churches, farmyards, secondhand
shops, museums, cafés, art studios... Create and put together your own individual bike route. Or make your life a little bit easier and use our official cycling routes; Dalslandsleden or Sverigeleden.
With its hilly terrain Dalsland might not offer the easiest biking routes in Sweden, but rewards after hard pedaling are never far away. Thanks to the landscapes character fantastic views are always around the corner and after biking upwards there are always wonderful downhills waiting. If you should prefer to hop over the hills you could try the beautiful plains of southern Dalsland. It is not as flat as Skåne but much easier biked than the rest of Dalsland. The abundance of small gravel roads and forest paths offer perfect possibilities and adrenalin kicks for the more enthusiastic biker. MTB-cyclists love Dalsland. Kroppefjäll in the south of Dalsland is one of many areas with tricky paths and challenges.
