Beautiful nature around Hässleholm

Hässleholm and the surrounding areas in northern Skåne has got many beautiful hiking areas with such a varied nature and lovely sceneries.


Hovdala Hiking Center is one of the recreation areas in Hässleholm's absolute vicinity which is under development and which in the last two years enriched many hikers with wonderful experiences along new trails. There are hiking opportunities for everyone - from varied half-day options to longer-term adventure but also shorter walking routes. Hovdala Castle is located in the middle of the area with a restaurant, café, shop and other services. During the season until September 30, you can go with a prebooked taxi from the central parts of Hässleholm to the castle, at the same price as the bus.


The film above shows you some experiences from Hovdala recreation area during last year´s big hiking event Eurorando.

Discover Vieåleden, a scenic and varied route east of Vittsjö, which is accessible the whole season until September/October as the fleet over Helgeå is available for hikers.

The Vedema hiking area is also one of our incredibly scenic areas with hilly terrain, pebbly streams and winding paths along marked trails.

Please contact us at Hässleholm Tourist Information if you need information and maps.

Tykarp´s cave

A visit in Tykarp´s cave (Tykarsgrottan) in Ignaberga just outside Hässleholm, will certainly enjoy the whole family. Go underground and discover the magical world among pillared halls and long labyrinths. Hear stories about limestone-mining, bats and Ronia the Robber´s Daughter, a Swedish film that was partly produced here. From the end of August until beginning of October there are guided tours during weekends.
