With this tour you will experience the local cuisine seasoned with a hint of exercise. You will be visiting both Café Visthuset and the hotel Norrqvarn. At both places taste and locally produced ingredients are central. In the picnic basket which you will receive at Café Visthuset as you collect your bikes you will of course also find our great coffee

Day 1 - Töreboda - Sjötorp - Norrqvarn (ca 27 km)
The day starts as you collect your bikes and your picnic baskets at us in Café Visthuset. On your way to Sjötorp, you will pass several locks which are set in beautiful nature, inviting you to stop and observe the locking of the passing boats. The whole way goes slightly downhill right next to the canal and is easy to bike on. For the whole route you will be biking on paths that are free from car traffic.

First goal of the day is the little village Sjötorp, wich is the harbour of the Göta Canal facing the lake Vänern. In the old days, this was the place were the boats and freighters were built and repaired. You will also find a little museum about the Göta Canal here, where you can learn more about the construction and usage of the canal. This museum is surely worth a visit! When you reach the hotel Norrqvarn at the end of the day, your dinner is served there. You will be enjoying three courses of locally produced dishes, which are giving you a selection of the tastes of this region. During the night you are staying in one of the hotel’s comfortable rooms, so that you can start refreshed into the next day.

Day 2 - Norrqvarn - Töreboda (ca 13 km)
In the morning, a breakfast buffet awaits you with more locally produced treats and typical flavours from this region of Sweden. Afterwards, you will be biking back to Töreboda in your own pace. Here you have the possibility to visit Sweden’s smallest ferry, the ’Lina’. At Café Visthuset a tasty ’smörgåsbricka’ - a cold platter - is prepared for you as an ending to your travel, giving you a variety of tastes of the region.
