Coast & Inland /2017

- the best of both worlds

Explore the very best of Halland, both coast and inland. The best of two worlds in a 3-days cycle tour, that winds its way along small roads in the area between the two towns, Varberg and Falkenberg. You will experience coastal landscape with its coastal meadows, moorland and fabulous beaches as well as peaceful rural inland, with its bustling little villages, farms and undulation fields of corn. The stages for each day are designed to make sure you have time to enjoy the countryside and activities offered along the way and to stop off at places of interest.

Unique overnight stays; one night at a farm/rural hotel with their own vineyard and one night at a high class hotel, situated directly at the beach, 3 days and 2 overnight stays.
