There are two variations, depending on which direction you want to cycle, and you can download them from Kattegattleden as GPX files, see at the bottom of the page.
Turn by turn.
If you have a bike computer with a GPS and map function or a phone and a mobile app with a navigation function, you can download a GPX file to your device here on the website, see below. You will receive continuous information about when to turn, and if you go the wrong way, it will lead you back to the trail. (The GPS navigator has a screen that shows where the path leads and some navigators may give verbal directions about where to turn. This is called turn by turn navigation.)
There is also a simpler, free solution, but it does require a smartphone. It shows the entire Kattegattleden on a map on which you can zoom in to the desired level of detail. Your position will be shown as a dot on the map so you know where you are and can easily navigate.
What to do:
Turn by turn.
1. Download the GPX file here from our website, see below. N.B. There are two files, one for each direction of travel. Check that you are using the right one to ensure you are directed properly. (Some apps and bike computers allow you to change the direction of the file; in that case you only need to download one file.)
2. If you have a smartphone, you will be asked which program (app) should open the file once it has been downloaded. Select your navigation app.
3. The Kattegattleden is now saved as an alternative route in your smartphone, and you can start it when you arrive for your bike ride.
1. If you do not have a smartphone app that can read GPX files, several free options are available wherever you download apps. One simple, free and popular app is called GPX Viewer. Look it up and download it to your phone.
2. Download one of the GPX files here from the website, see below. It does not matter which file you choose, as the app will not give instructions on where to cycle; it will only show your location and the route.
4. You will be asked which program (app) to use to open the file when it is downloaded, select your navigation app (GPX viewer).
5. The Kattegattleden is now saved as an alternative route in your smartphone, and you can start it when you arrive for your bike ride.
