A nice day trip is to bike south from Torne along the Banvallsleden (railway embankment) towards the national park and on to Ålshult and Urshult. From Urshult, follow Sirkövägen north towards the national park entrance Sunnabron. In total the route is 60 km. It’s not signposted but is easy to follow with the help of the downloadable map. Just under 20 km of the journey is on a car-free cycleway and some sections are on gravel roads. Please note that the trail is not recommended for small children on their own bikes as Sirkövägen is narrow and shared by a variety of traffic!
