Along Skåneleden: Bjäre & Kulla Peninsulas

€1295 per person

In this self-guided walking package exploring the southern coast of Sweden, we have combined hiking along the Bjäre Peninsula and the Kulla Peninsula. You start from Båstad and spend some time walking along the coast before you go inland.  Up Hallandsåsen, the trail goes through beautiful dense forests and over vast open meadows. When the beech trees bloom, the greenery is magically beautiful. The trail goes down to the coast again as you follow out to the fishing village of Torekov. You now see the majestic silhouette of Kullaberg that juts out on the other side of Skälderviken. A transfer then takes you to the start of the Kullaleden and the hike along the Kulla Peninsula. An amazing blend of sandy beaches, pebbles, meadows, beautiful forests, nature reserves, cozy fishing villages, the historic seaside resort of Mölle and fantastic views over Denmark. The walk ends in Helsingborg where you also have the opportunity to visit Sofiero Castle and Gardens.

Day 2: Båstad - Torekov (20 km, 5hrs, +385m/-400m)
The independent hiking tour begins with a slightly longer stage. If you want to shorten the hike, you can pre-book a transfer to Norrvikens Trädgårdar. From the accommodation, you walk through Båstad along the seaside. You pass the marina and Skansenbadet's impressive sandy beach. At Norrviken's gardens, the trail leaves the coast and goes up Hallandsåsen with dense forests full of life, ridges, meadows and pastures. The landscape is open and hilly. At Høv Hallar you return to the coast. Along the coastal strip, there are several burial mounds from the Bronze Age. You continue towards the extreme tip of the Bjäre Peninsula, where the picturesque fishing village Torekov is located. You might end the day with a visit to the accommodation's SPA. Torekov is still a fishing village but it is today known as a summer resort.

The hike from Solsidan by Torekov continues into the southern nature reserve of Bjärekusten. The trail takes you over coastal meadows, over cobblestone fields, sandy beaches and past idyllic small villages. Enjoy the breathtaking view of Kullaberg's mighty silhouette on the other side of Skälderviken. On a clear day, you can see many shifts in the sky, sea and mountain. The hike goes along the seaside all day and there are many great opportunities for swimming. Along the trail, you pass several smaller ports before you reach Vejbystrand and your accommodation for the night.

You walk almost all day along the seaside, with a few exceptions. You continue with a little asphalt walking through the residential area along the coast of Jonstorp and Rekekroken. If the weather is clear, you have the opportunity to see Hallands Väderö and Torekov on the Bjäre Peninsula. After Svanshall, the hiking trail leads you through woods, meadows and along the sea.

If you have a lot of energy in your legs, you can visit Nimis, the well-known work of art made of driftwood. Just before Kullen's lighthouse, you will pass Josefinelust, with a viewpoint down to the beautiful pebble beach and the neighboring caves. You continue the descent through the nature reserve until you reach the small historic seaside resort of Mölle.

Day 7: Höganäs - Helsingborg (22km, 4.30hrs, +210m/-195m)
Today you have an incredibly beautiful hike in front of you. Not particularly physically demanding, but you will have lovely views throughout the day. You will see Denmark on the other side of the strait, with Kronborg Castle in Elsinore getting closer and closer. It will be a walk along beaches, through small harbors and cozy villages, including Lerberget, Viken and Domsten. Just north of Helsingborg is Sofiero Castle with its impressive garden. If you want to make a longer visit to the park or want to shorten the day's hike, the city buses go into the center of Helsingborg just outside the entrance to Sofiero.
