"String of pearls" /2017

- the Falkenberg trail

Do you want to experience both coast and countryside? The first day you cycle through the coastal landscape with coastal meadows, moorland and fabulous beaches, that will tempt you to stop and take a salty swim.

The next day the tour takes you through peaceful rural inland, with its bustling little villages, farms and undulation fields of corn.

During the whole tour you will experience a lot of hidden gems, strung out like beads on a necklace. You can cycle at your own pace, with plenty of time to stop off along the way. 

Accommodation in two of Hallands most genuin and charming hostels/bed & breakfasts - in our opinion!
