There are trails for short walks or long hikes. You can go fishing, canoeing or horseback riding. The Snogeholm Visitor Centre has both information brochures and the café Villa Vandra. The Skåneleden Trail passes through the area and there are four cottages available to rent.

There are two horse riding tracks of 8.4 km and 3.7 km long. The car park for trailers is just north of the recreation area office. There is a paddock which can be rented and it is also possible to hire a horse and cart to travel round the site. To book, contact Snogeholm Visitor Centre.


Rainbow trout can be caught by fly fishing or spinning from the Kejsardammen Ponds. If you would prefer to outsmart pike, perch or zander, try Lake Snogeholmssjön, where float fishing, casting and spinning are permitted. Both the pond and the lake have platforms suitable for disabled users. In winter you can do ice fishing on Lake Snogeholmssjön.

A fishing permit is required for both the pond Kejsardammen and for Lake Snogeholmssjön whether fishinf from the shore, from a boat or on the ice.
