Tour around Asunden lake

photographer Jonas Ingman

Welcome to scenic Ulricehamn, located in western Sweden landlocked between Borås and Jönköping.

Here you will find great walking and cycling opportunities. This day trip will take you on a scenic bike ride along Åsunden lake with views of the fir-clad hills and through two nature reserves. At Skottek you can take part of Åsunden story that tells of "Battle of Bogesund". Along the way you pass a dozen mansions related to Birgit Th Sparre's novels about the mansions around the lake. Half of the way is car-free along” Ätradalsleden”. The rest of the tour meanders on asphalt and low traffic road.
