The Swedish section of Eurovelo 3 runs through the province of Bohuslän, known for its islands and rocky granite terrain. From the Norwegian border to Gothenburg, the route explores the region’s coastal landscapes, fishing villages, pine and spruce forests, agricultural communities and historic landmarks.

The route of Eurovelo 3 in Sweden largely follows shared roads with good pavement and calm traffic and separated cycle paths. The route is occasionally hilly, with short and sometimes steep sections. The route is suitable for all kinds of bicycles but a general lack of services and frequent use of shared roads makes the route most suitable for experienced bicycle tourists.
