Kayaking around the island of Utö on our free day.

Bring clothing and preparation for all kinds of weather!

Benefited the people on the individual islands, such as Utö, Orna Kyrka etc. where cafes and shops were reliant on tourism. We reduced environmental impacts through cycling and there was no unnecessary public transport.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

We would highly recommend the trip; our guide was friendly, the other people on our trip were fantastic, the scenery was great and the cycling was a refreshing getaway.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

So many wonderful moments: Cycling through the beautiful Swedish countryside, fresh air, no cars; seeing red squirrels; exploring the delights of Stockholm; discovering a wishing tree on the island of Ornö; the delicious food; excellent breakfasts; the variety of accomodation; staying out in the countryside in a farmhouse by a lake and being offered impromptu use of the sauna as the evening becomes fresher, then watching a lone cloud in the distance beyond the lake as it glows intermittently from lightening striking within.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Do a little training beforehand. Wear cycling shorts and/ or take a gel seat!

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We supported some small and local businesses. For example, staying in a remote B & B. Our luggage was transported on for us, so it was just one vehicle making a trip and our exploration of the area was on environmentally friendly bicycles. Many Swedish hotels are environmentally aware as they offer minimal bath and shower products and many do not provide bottled water as the tap water is excellent, thus minimising their impact on the environment.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Life enhancing. The operator provided comprehensive information and organised everything beautifully. This meant we were free to enjoy the cycling and discover the Swedish culture and sights. When I returned home I was still glowing from all the memories and sensations from the vacation experiences.
