Discover our Motorcycle Tours in Sweden

A motorcycle tour in Sweden takes you deep into a fascinating, unique, unspoilt European country. A mystical land, populated by the Sami and Lapps in the north, this Scandinavian country abound with nature will pleasantly surprise you for sure. A model country in terms of democracy and sustainability, respecting nature is deep-rooted in Swedes’ daily lives. The low population density and vast wild open spaces make Sweden a country where harmony between humans and nature reigns supreme. Its dense forests, pristine lakes and stunning landscapes are an invitation to enjoy the serenity and simple pleasures of life. Explore the capital, Stockholm, which still has a certain small town vibe, while being modern and dynamic. Sweden is overflowing with secrets and treasures, including regal castles, immense old-growth forests, peaceful plains, reindeer herds, historic sites, medieval villages and Viking folklore. During a motorcycle tour in Sweden, you will discover the mountainous Dalarna County, set off to the Bohuslän archipelago or Gotland Island. What's more, there are plenty of fantastic spots waiting for you to sample fresh fish before indulging in a Swedish sauna.

When’s the best time to visit Sweden?

The best time to take a motorcycle tour in Sweden is between June and August. Temperatures are mild and the weather is generally sunny in the summer, especially from Skåne to the Baltic Sea islands. During this season, accommodation is open and the days are longer. Summer is very short in the north of the country and a little longer in the south. Temperatures can be warm enough to swim but the weather can suddenly change and give way to showers. Don’t forget your waterproofs and warm clothes, even in summer! From the end of May to the end of July, the sun shines 24/7 north of the Arctic Circle. However, in winter it is quite the opposite: the sun never rises. In the south of Sweden, summer days are long. Pick July to visit for a better chance of pleasant temperatures. Autumn comes around fast and starts mid-August. The further north you travel, the harsher and colder winter is. The northern lights can only be spotted in the Great North during winter months. Stockholm is perfect to visit at any time of the year.

Sweden’s geography

When you set off for a motorcycle tour in Sweden, you’ll discover the third largest country in the European Union. An immense, wild country with Norway to the west and Finland to the east, it extends some 1000 miles from Denmark in the south to the borders of Lapland in the north. Thousands of islands are dotted along the east coast from the Gulf of Bothnia to the Baltic Sea further south. The kingdom’s capital, Stockholm, stands on a cluster of some 30,000 islands! Gotland and Oland are the largest islands in Sweden. Bohuslän archipelago, in the west of the country, must not be missed. The landscapes between the north and south are very diverse and contrasting. Along the Norwegian border, the Scandinavian Mountains range between 1,500 m and 2,000 m. On the approaches to the Norwegian border, away from the vast plains, hills and fields, the terrain becomes gradually more mountainous. Sweden’s highest peak is Kebnekaise (2,111 m) in the north-west of the country. A land of forests, lakes and rivers, the country is home to almost 30 national parks. Admire the numerous lakes nestled in the heart of Nordic forests surrounded by snow-capped mountains. Lakes Vänern and Vättern are the largest in Sweden.

Sweden’s history and culture

During a motorcycle tour in Sweden, you will get the chance to discover the country’s rich, unique history and culture. Rock art shows evidence of prehistoric life. The Vikings disembarked on the Swedish coast in the 10th century. The Swedish state emerged with the first king, Olof Skötkonung, who also introduced Christianity to the kingdom. Sweden later joined the Kalmar Union, along with Denmark and Norway. In 1523, Gustaf I, King of Sweden, founded a powerful nation state. During the Danish wars of the 18th century, Sweden gradually took control of the Baltic region. At the end of the 19th century, the first social democratic party was founded and universal suffrage came into being. In the 20th century, Sweden set an example with its famous “Swedish model”. Since then, the Scandinavian country is often cited as exemplary in terms of democracy and social and environmental progress. It should also be highlighted that Sweden is a member of the European Union but it opted out of adopting the common currency. Don’t forget to change some Swedish Krona before your motorcycle tour in Sweden!
