  1. Are there any bicycle trails in the surroundings of Hässleholm?

    Go out and explore the landscape by bike

    Take your bike out, put your helmet on and go for a cycle tour around Hässleholm. Along the Göinge route and the Northern forest route you get some interesting pieces of history and pleasant sightseeing. Enjoy your own packed picnic or take your coffee stop or lunch at any of the cafés or restaurants along the way. If you want to go for a longer ride, there are maps on how to go around lake Finjasjön or to the neighbour municipality of Kristianstad.


    Maps are available at the Medborgarkontoret / Infopoint in Stadshuset (City Hall), Hässleholm. Digitally, the maps are in the links below:



    Mountainbike trails

    In the forests around Hovdala Nature Area there is a 37 kilometres long MTB trail for competitions every Autumn. You can use the trail throughout the year, but please notice that there are no signs along the trail and it is not continously maintained.


    There is also a shorter trail of 7 kilometres in Mölleröd just to the north of the Finjasjön lake.

    Maps of the trails are available at Medborgarkontoret in the City Hall of Hässleholm (Stadshuset) or at Hovdala Castle. Or download the maps here:

    Is it allowed to cycle on hiking trails and in exercise tracks?

    According to the Right of public access, it is possible to cycle gently in nature if you do not damage the ground. Avoid cycling with rough-treaded tires on fragile grounds, cycling on paths when the ground is wet and adjust your cycling style to the ground condition.

     

    There is no general prohibition on cycling on hiking trails, but they are designed for those who walk or run. Therefore, you need to take it easy and know that those who run or walk have priority.

    In the municipality's exercise track, however, it is prohibited to bicycle.

     

    Take care of nature so we can all continue to enjoy it!

  7. Where can I go hiking and overnight in nature?

    Magic nature experinces in Hässleholm

    Hässleholm municipality has a rich and varied range for those who love outdoor activities and hiking experiences. Here are both shorter walking paths and exercise trails as well as longer half and full day options. You can hike in the same nature area for several days at a time if you want. For example, in the magical rooms at Hovdala Hiking Center there is a piece of Scanian nature and culture at its best!


    Hiking around Hässleholm


    The overnight is a part of the adventure

    Hovdala Hiking Centre

    At Hovdala Hiking Center you can stay overnight at the campsite "Between dusk and dawn" with three unique, architect designed windshields named Birk, Birka and Ronja. Here, next to the Tree House, lonely hikers as well as families or smaller groups can pre-book a night in the shelters. You may get the feeling of how it is to stay inside a birch trunk. With a nice view out of the lake Finjasjön and parts of the nature area it will be an experience to remember.

     

    At Hovdala nature area there are also two traditional wind shelters - without possibilities for pre-booking - at Hässleholmsgården, two kilometers from the centre of Hässleholm, and at the ridge Göingeåsen in the eastern part of the nature area, with lovely views towards the evening sun.

    Stay in a tent

    You may stay in a tent for a night or two in the countryside. Remember not to distroy anything in nature and to pitch the tent in a suitable place – in other words, where farming is not carried on and not too close to a residence. Indeed, the greater the risk of disturbing someone, all the greater reason there is to ask for permission.

  11. What is Right of the Public Access?

    In Sweden we have a unique opportunity to roam freely in nature. You make use of the right of public access when you go for a walk in the forest, paddle a canoe or just sit on a rock and think. In order for everyone to enjoy nature, we need to take care of both nature and wildlife an show consideration for landowners and others who are outdoors.

     

    We can sum this up with the phrase ”Don’t disturb – don’t destroy”. Take notice of how to act when doing different kinds of activities:
