Cycling in Åsnen

Cycling along Åsnen’s beaches is an experience difficult to beat. On a bike, you meet colours, smells and tastes that always will stay with you when you think back on your holiday in Åsnen. Powerful natural experiences, swimming, exercise and fresh air.

Ride along the old, disused railbed before you continue on a quiet forest road, and then make a stop in Åsnen National Park. Several cycling routes lead through Åsnen, many of them marked with signs, and are just waiting for you to discover them. You can feel absolutely safe as you cycle with the kids in a car-free, lakeside environment. Make a stop for an ice cream in a café or go for a swim in the lake at one of the many beaches.


On this page we hope to give you some tips for nice excursions. The nature guidebook ÅSNEN Nature, National Park and Wildlife in South Sweden – a Travel Guide contains additional recommendations for cycle paths of various length and difficulty.
