Relaxing trip by bike and canoe through beautiful nature.
The old railway track directly along lake Asunden offers a fantastic cycling experience for young and old. Today, the former railway track is a really nice cycle path which is paved, car-free and part of the roundtrip"Sjuhäradrundan" and also part of the cycle path "Ätradalleden".
After arriving in the morning, you get your bike and helmet, lunch to take with you and directions for a trip along the lake. On the way you pass wonderful viewpoints and rest areas. The bathing place in Marbäck is perfect for swimming and resting. After about 15 km you reach Vegby with a small cafe directly by the lake. You decide how long you want to cycle. On the other side of the lake you can return to Ulricehamn on the country road (a total of 42 km) or you cycle back on the old railway track towards Ulricehamn.
At Skotteksgarden Restaurang & Café you can round off the day with good food and a view of the lake. You stay in one of our cozy cottages or apartments on historic land: the area around Skottek is part of Swedish history, because in 1520 the battle of Åsunden took place here. Today there is a memorial stone at Skotteksgården and a small board with information.
The next day, after a good breakfast, it's time to discover the lake Åsunden by canoe. Bring binoculars, fishing rod and swimwear - there are nice picnic areas along the edge or on one of the islands in the southern part of the lake. In the afternoon you can take a walk into town or simply relax at the beach.
This tour is suitable for families with children with older children who are already used to cycling a longer distance. For families with small children, there is a bicycle with a child seat to borrow. But even for active seniors, this short trip is excellent.
Our bikes are ordinary women's bikes with 3 gears and a basket on the bike handlebars.
Our canoes are stable aluminum canoes and of course you get a life jacket.
