There are many nice places to cycle in the High Coast. In a few places, cycling is not allowed. One such place is the Skuleskogen nature reserve. You can’t ride a bike there. Otherwise, the right of public access applies and as long as you follow it, cycling is allowed in the beautiful nature of the High Coast. Here are some tips for good cycling in the High Coast.

Parking, toilet and bike wash are available in the area.

Nice nature trails for MTB on Hemsön
Starting at our rental, there is a network of fun trails that we have cleared and adapted for cycling. With a full-suspension MTB, cycling becomes extra enjoyable!
Via the Trailforks app (free) you can see all our trails and tour suggestions. The route Älgarnas bakgård >> is a 10km loop that mostly follows a path, a short stretch of gravel road and is surrounded by very varied nature. It is challenging for most people but does not contain any jumps or major obstacles.
The Cold War around >> is a less technical loop of 22km that passes Hemsö Fortress where you can enjoy great views and good food. The route is half along minor sand/gravel roads and half on paths. This route still puts your leg muscles to the test as Hemsön is hilly.
