What you'll do
I will offer you a private bike tour of Malmö city. Malmö is perhaps Scandinavia's best bike-friendly city. It a great experience to bike in the city. During the bike tour, we will make brief stops where I will narrate events from as early as 1400's to the recent past. I will tell you about why we have named a square after the least popular Swedish King who got deposed from Stockholm. I will tell you why we were the epicentre of battles between Denmark and Sweden for close to about half a millennium. I will show you the thriving art and startup scene as we bike. Let us bike through the bumpy medieval cobblestones to the most modern sustainable urban neighbourhood. During the tour, you will hear the echos of seagulls that inspired Viking navigators to the present day, common man. We will bike from the modern architecture of 'Malmöhatten' to a gas station from the 1950s that inspired a PhD thesis. We will bike past the tallest building of Scandinavia to a building that was crowned as Sweden's ugliest buildings.
I am a Zoologist with diverse interests ranging from Art, History and Science. I started giving guided tours just as a hobby and somehow got hooked onto it! One of the best things being a tour guide is there is always something new to discover in the City and share it with my guests. There are always new things to learn from my guests, be it commerce, politics, wine, literature etc... I have been living in the Lund-Malmö area since 2012 and been giving guided tours since 2013.
I will provide you with a nice bike that I rent out from Travelshop.
