For groups of 5 - 12 people
The standard tour starts from the bike hire shop in Mörbylånga. We then cycle from Mörbylånga via Bårby over Stora Alvaret to the eastern side. In Alby we eat lunch or other refreshments at Blå Porten and then cycle further south to Skärlöv where we leave the main road. The tour now goes on the old railway bank back over Alvaret to the rest area at Penåsa, which is an old railway guard's house with two deserted farms. Further via Kastlösa down to the newly constructed cycle path at Kalmarsund. Back in Mörbylånga after about 45 km of cycling that usually takes 4 - 5 hours. During the tour we stop at 10 - 15 places where the guide talks about the World Heritage Site and what it is like to live on southern Öland.
The tour normally starts at 10 am and is available in spring, summer and autumn. Pre-registration is required at least 5 days in advance.
