Day 2: Cycling tour
Today after breakfast we start with a beautiful bike ride to Kärnåsen. This is an old settlement where in the summer several parties are still held but it is also great to walk around out of season and take in the history and picnic at the waterfront.
After this we cycle on to Lovisberg for a delicious evening meal where everything is fresh and all products come from this area. After dinner we cycle back to Björnbyn and the campsite.

Tonight a real Swedish salmon buffet will be served in the restaurant of the campsite.
