Cycle and swim north of Strömstad

Lagunen is located just over 3 km from the bustling town of Strömstad, which offers both action-filled activities and relaxation all year round. The cycle path from Lagunen is a safe and simple way to reach the town. To the north of Strömstad you will find amazing beaches and experiences.

The Swimming Route north of Strömstad

The theme for this cycling route is to swim at different locations north of Strömstad. It is also an opportunity to discover a part of the town that usually attracts fewer visitors. Once you have completed the cycle path to Strömstad, you may feel ready for your first swim. Röudden, opposite the marina in Kebal, has nice rocks and a jetty.

The trip then continues further into the bay and to the SPA Hotel. This is a good place to stop for a drink or something to eat. From here, follow the road across the golf course. A few kilometres later, you reach Seläterbadet, which has a lovely sandy beach. Time for another dip!

The very best place to swim north of Strömstad is Capri. This will be your third and final dip on this cycle tour, which is suitable for all the family. Afterwards, follow the route through Strömstad and back to Lagunen at your own pace.

Which map application do you use?

Lagunen has decided to focus on three apps, which we find work well in our area. All have useful free versions available, although a paid subscription obviously means more features. You can also download the GPX file to your own favourite app. In addition, our reception sells a useful leisure map, scale 1:50,000.

  • Viewranger: This app has a good user interface and useful map functions. Originally designed for hiking and navigating in forests and nature. Easy to create trips and plan routes. We use it mainly for hiking and trail riding. Integrates with Openstreetmap, which is very up-to-date in our area.
  • Trailforks: This is home turf for trail riders. The app is a meeting place for anyone who enjoys cycling in woodland. Free maps make it easy to find good trail riding routes.
  • Strava: This app has been around for a long time and has many users in our area. This means that it is very up-to-date and includes recommendations for both road cycling and mountain biking.

Stay near the archipelago of Strömstad

At Lagunen you stay right by the ocean, where the Strömstad archipelago begins. The site has lots to enjoy and discover. Will you spend the day exploring Strömstad, enjoying a boat trip on Kosterhavet, or relaxing and catching crabs from Mali’s jetty, right next to Lagunen’s own beach? At Lagunen you wake to the sound of lapping waves, shrieking seagulls and the sea breeze from Kosterhavet, which finds its way into the bay all year round – what time you wake up is up to you.
