One of Sweden´s best playgrounds

One of Sweden's best playgrounds, Helsingborg.

Horse riding

Wherever you look in Skåne, you’re bound to see a horse. This is our favourite beast of all. There are many different breeds of horse, and plenty of places where you can ride. As well as the sheer joy of riding, getting up on horseback is a perfect way of coming into close contact with nature, and of covering lots of ground in a short time. Even if you’re a complete beginner, you can go riding through leafy beech forests or along the beach. Amiable Icelandic horses that jog along at a moderate pace are available at Spelmansgården in Ängelholm or Kullabergs Islandshästar. The scenery and rich wildlife of Söderåsen are best enjoyed from a western saddle on a good-natured Haflinger horse from Söderåsens Turridning. Westfield Hästsafari, between Båstad and Torekov, offers riding at Hovs Hallar, through apple groves and at full gallop. If you’d like to try riding an Ardennes horse, you can do so on Hven. Many of the tours welcome children and novices. All you need to bring is a pair of sturdy shoes. Horses and helmets are available for hire.

Canoeing

The River Rönne winds its way through the countryside from Lake Ringsjön to the sea at Ängelholm. This stretch is 85 kilometres long, and you can paddle your way along through almost tropical scenery, and past areas with rich cultural traditions and towns. The peaceful journey is occasionally punctuated with rapids. There are plenty of things to see and do along the way. Some sections are ideal for families with children. You can choose to paddle for a few hours or a few days. One example is the trip from Gunnarödsbron/Stockamöllan to Rögnaröd/Djupadal, which takes around four hours. You can hire canoes and kayaks from various locations, and most hire companies also offer overnight accommodation. Stay in a converted stable or a 17th century cottage. Or why not get a whole bunch of friends together and hire a 20 or 12 man tent. If you want to spend the night in the great outdoors, there are places with shelters, toilets and firewood. For a particularly Swedish summer experience, combine a canoeing trip with hiring a sauna trailer. Take a hot sauna, followed by a dip in the river. Life doesn’t get much better than that!

The market hall in Höganäs - a gastronomic paradise

Happiness is having all the ingredients you could want, from local, small-scale producers – all in one place, and in a fantastic setting. The market hall in Höganäs is housed in the former Höganäs Saltglaserat factory. Between tall brick kilns, the shelves are full of freshly baked sourdough bread, tomato jam, sausages, well-hung meat, cheeses, wild garlic vinegar and newly harvested vegetables. The brown salt-glazed ceramic pitchers that are a symbol of the local area are still made in this building, together with modern ceramics from Höganäsgruppen. Upstairs, with views of the market hall, is a restaurant serving the finest menu in northwest Skåne. If you’re out and about in the region, it won’t be long before you find one of our many farm shops.

Our vineyards

The Continent? Yes, you read that right. Geographically, northwest Skåne is part of Continental Europe. Hallandsås and Söderåsen mark the border between the Scandinavian and Continental plates, and the landscape is thickly wooded. The sea ensures a marine climate. Grapes thrive in the Skåne soil and with the long growing season. They are used to ake red, white, rosé and sparkling wines. Take a wine tour, stopping off at the vineyards of Arilds Vingård (Lillavägen 71, Arild), Kullahalvöns Vingård (Lykerisvägan 52, Nyhamsläge, Höganäs), Vejby Vingård (Västra Ljungbyvägen 319, Vejbystrand), Södåkra Vingård (Gamla Södåkrav. 298, Jonstorp), Aplagårdens Vinhus (Ekebyvägen 27, Helsingborg) and Vingården i Frillestad (Rycketoftavägen 37, Påarp). If you’re travelling as a group, you can also book a wine-tasting session.

Sofiero Palace

With its romantic grounds, Sofiero Palace makes for a popular destination. The grounds are perhaps best known for their unparalleled rhododendrons, with an incredible 5,000 bushes bursting into flower in the spring. The fairytale of Sofiero began in 1864, when Crown Prince Oskar and his wife Sophia had their summer residence built here. In 1905, Oskar – by now King Oskar ll – gave the palace to his grandson Prince Gustav Adolf and his bride Princess Margareta as a wedding present. This is when the gardens literally flourished. Princess Margareta was a keen and creative gardener, and it was her who first laid out the grounds that we can enjoy to this day. She arranged flower beds and gardens, had paving laid and wasn’t afraid to get her hands dirty. Every summer, the Crown Prince couple travelled from Stockholm with their four young princes and Princess Ingrid, who eventually became Queen of Denmark. When Margareta died in 1920, Gustaf Adolf carried on the work in the garden, particularly with the rhododendrons. The palace was the summer residence of the Swedish royal family up until 1973, when it was given to the town of Helsingborg. This small palace, which lies like a jewel amid the extensive lawns, is home to a restaurant where the food is prepared by some of Sweden’s finest chefs. There’s also a café with views of the Öresund Sound and Denmark.

Landskrona Citadel and Rothoffska Allotment

Landskrona features Sweden’s only allotment museum. This small, green painted cottage and allotment was built by the Rothoff family in 1903. The cottage is furnished in the style of the early 20th century, and there is a small exhibition about the history of the allotment. Perennial beds and roses flourish in the front garden, while vegetables and herbs grow at the back. Honey from the original beehive is sold at Landskrona Museum. The Citadel Allotments are Sweden’s oldest preserved allotment areas, on the old fortifications of Landskrona Citadel. There are 122 allotments here, featuring colourful floral displays and spectacular ornamental woodwork.
