Tips on outdoor life near Örebro

Publicerad 2022-01-03
Örebro is a small city with a lot of nature nearby. There are marked trails for hiking, biking and kayaking that easily take you out into nature. Do you want to experience nature one afternoon, with coffee in your backpack, or even several days with a tent and storm kitchen? Regardless of level, there are many ways to enjoy nature in Örebro.

Cycling in Örebro

The bicycle trails in and around our city take you out on beautiful gravel roads, mixed with the occasional path. Along the way there are farm shops and cozy cafés that invite you to take a nice break.

Cycling around Lake Lången

North of Örebro, wide fields and rolling fields spread out. Here you can find Lake Lången, which you can bike around as a nice day trip. The bicycle trail around Lake Lången is a pleasant ride of 27 kilometers with an altitude of 90 meters. You pass the beautiful Kåviängen and Axbergs church – and if you feel like taking a swim, Kårstaö is just a short detour!

If you want to shorten the tour, there is the so-called church footbridge, Kyrkspången, between Nävesta and Gottsätter. There are also nice places to fill up with energy, such as the rural shop and café Smultrongården and Solliden's summer café. Check the opening hours before, as they may differ depending on the season.

Cycling around Lake Tysslingen

The lake is also called Swan Lake as thousands of birds – especially dazzling white swans – rest here every year for a few early spring weeks. During the summer, you can enjoy the bicyle trail around Tysslingen, which starts at Karlslund Manor and takes you 32 flat kilometers out on Närkeslätten and back. Along the road lays Lindbacka mill, a former industrial district where creative shops have opened.

Bike to Katrinelund

If you like biking on gravel roads, this is the right trail for you! It is 28 kilometers and goes from Örebro Castle to Katrinelunds Gästgiveri and Sjökrog. The bike ride takes you along the southern edge of the lakes Hemfjärden and Mellanfjärden, to finish at beautiful Katrinelund. Treat yourself with a long and luxurious lunch at Sjökrogen. Maybe zander from lake Hjälmare tastes good after almost 30 km by bike? Feel free to book a table in advance!

On Bergslagen Cycling's website, you will find bike trails throughout the county.
