NATURE & SPORT
BICYCLING, HIKING, ROCK CLIMBING, OCEAN KAYAK
– there are a number of possibilities to try the great outdoors, whether you venture out on your own or you prefer the more hard core activities that require professional guides and the right gear.
The house is located with direct access to part of ’Skåneleden’; a hiking system with clearly marked, orange signs (SL5) which is called Kullaleden.
Kullen, (Kullaberg) is the name of the 8 kilometer long mountain range 20 km north of the city of Helsingborg, with Mölle on the outer tip as the most famous summer destination. Here you also find the extraordinary artwork of driftwood by Lars Vilks; Nimis - that you can climb and walk through from forest to the ocean. (requires decent shape and proper shoes!)
The whole area is a mecca for nature lovers, whether you go for action like mountain biking, rock climbing, diving or ocean kayak, or you just want to take in the scenery with a picnic basket, stroll the hills, or try out local specialties by visiting farms, bakeries, vineyards or apple orchards.
The town of Höganäs is definitely worth a visit. The old ceramic factory has been turned into a farmers market where you literally sit around the old ovens and enjoy a lovely lunch while looking down at deli shops and farmers market.
