Guided bike tour - 2 hrs. Discover local history with focus on beautiful scenery, granite, architechture and the legacy of the era when thousands of men worked the local granite slabs to durable cobble stone and building blocks for impressive buildings like the church that still dominates Lysekil's skyline.
By using a bike, we are able to visit the remote shores of the Stångehuvud nature reserve with smooth granite, once caressed by waves and yet reaching the granite clad streets of central Lysekil and other places of interest and natural beauty (artwork and buildings) along the way.
Use your own bike - or rent one from us. (more info below)

- WHAT IF THE WEATHER IS "BAD" ???
- Depending on prevailing weather conditions the departure time and/or location may be subject to change, or the tour may be cancelled altogether. If cancelled, we will reimburse the entire amount, minus a small administration fee. However it is our ambition to offer an alternative activity. For instance, if walking/hiking is hazardous due to a thunderstorm approaching, we may offer you indoor climbing instead. If so, you will be reimbursed any price difference, except for a small administration fee. Please note that it is always the tour leader/guide of each activity that has the final say, after communication with the participants or group leader.
