Where can I go hiking and where will I find windbreaks/overnight cabins?

Hässleholm and its surrounding area has a lot to offer for hikers. At Hovdala recreation area there are three circular trails suitable for either wholeday-trekking or you can choose a shorter part of each trail for only half a day. Finjasjöleden is 18 km long and part of the Skåneleden trail, Jakten på Gullspira is 21 km and Höjdarnas Höjdarled is 22 km. In addition to these longer trails you´ll find some shorter alternatives. You can walk along the 6-km "Al-slingan" which goes through one of Skåne's largest alder forests. The "Caspers slinga" trail is 4.2 km and the "Dammslingan" trail 2.9 km. The area also has a 6-km dog walking trail with activity stations along.

A few more trails are under construction and will be ready during the season 2017.
