Find your favourite footpath

The landscape of Skåne is unique. There are very few places where you can experience such varied countryside in such a small area. Our recreation areas are spread out over the whole of Skåne - some twenty sites each of which has its own character.

The recreation areas have marked footpaths, information signs, toilets, fishing platforms, viewing towers and picnic areas where you can eat your packed food or barbecue. There are footpaths with easy access - for those of you with pushchairs, wheelchairs or zimmer frames. There are also paths for mountain bikes or horses. The Skåneleden Trail passes several of our sites for those of you wishing to walk that bit further. Some of the sites have fewer facilities, for those of you searching for more wilderness.

Regardless of whether you are a well-established lover of the countryside or a beginner, there is always something to suit you!
