Nature in Skåne
Skåne presents a rich variety of astonishing nature scenes. Its said to be a flat province which is totally wrong. You can experience almost everything you possibly could ask for in this extremely varied province.
Skåne provides 300 kilometres of beaches, large forests with different characters, mountains to climb, great fishing, hiking trails and lots of more.
A round trip in Skåne from north to south to experience nature could be as follows:
The peninsula of Bjäre with its fertile flat landscape looks like a broad bridge leading out to the open sea in the west. The coastline, especially at Hovs hallar, is wilder and more dramatic than anywhere else. Billions of stones polished by the water over thousands of years, together with high, sculpture-like rock formations have a beauty of their own, almost like a surrealistic painting.
Halland's Väderö, a tranquil small Island just off the coast, is a nature reserve well known for its flora, bird-life and seal colony. Boat tours daily during summer from Torekov. The "Väderöbåtarna-company" has got an own www-site.
Kullaberg is a nature park with magnificent scenery. The mountain is at the end of the peninsula Kullahalvön, which looks out over the southern end of the Kattegatt.
Ivösjön is the largest lake in Skåne, surrounded by beech woods and fruit trees, graceful hills and fertile valleys. Right in the centre of the lake is a small island.
Kjugekull near the Oppmannasjön is only a small mountain but it is well worth making your way to the summit, where it is a fantastic view over the surrounding countryside.
The beautiful hilly landscape between Ravlunda and Haväng has inspired dozens of painters and poets. And while in the area you can go and see Brösarps backar (The Brösarps hills).
In the middle of Skåne, you can go to Vombsjön and see the rich bird-life and the beautiful French-style park surrounding the castle. The area also has a large herd of white fallow deer which attracts thousands of visitors.
In Torup, just a few kilometres east of Malmö, you will find one of the region's finest beech woods. And if you go on east of Malmö, to Snogeholm nature reserve, you will experience not only a wonderful nature but also one of the best planned recreation areas in the province. The bird-life and fauna around Sövdesjön is richly varied. Long-legged cranes are often seen on the shores of the lake and in the woods you can encounter deer and other animals roaming freely.
