The Vieåleden trail and the Hörlinge meadows

The Vieå river’s surroundings is a true gem offering plentiful natural and cultural experiences. The Vieå trail, 11-14 kilometres, stretches from the unique Skeingeborg castle ruin in the south to the Hörlinge meadows outdoor museum and the Skåneleden trail in the north. In the summer, you can cross the Helge å river with a raft. The Hörlinge meadows are unique wetlands in Skåne, and attracts resting and nesting birds such as cranes, ruffs, sandpipers and whimbrels. They also feature an accessible outdoor museum and birdwatching tower. The trail passes through meadows with anxious cows and high stairways. Dogs are not suitable to bring along this trail due to several fence passages with steep ladders and passings of pastures and paddocks with free range cows and horses.

The raft is stored for winter from November 1. The trail is accessible again from May 1, 2024.
