Peter’s walking suggestions

Peter Eriksson is a nature-lover from Ystad who likes to share his countryside walks. On his website, stigvis.se, you can find out more about nature in Ystad and Österlen. Here are three of his favourite walks.

Christinehof - Hallamölla (around 4 hours)
At castle of Christinehof Slott are the wetlands of Borstakärr, where the footbridges bring you into close contact with the marsh and its inhabitants. Follow the well-marked trails east for a slightly longer walk. Explore the alum works in Andrarum, and follow the River Verkeån through the countryside. Enjoy a picnic while listening to the waterfall at Hallamölla.

Kåseberga - Hammars backar, hills (2-3 hours)
Kåseberga is worth a visit at any time of the year. When paying the almost obligatory visit to Ales Stenar, continue west along the coast towards Ystad. After a fairly long walk, you will arrive at the hills of Hammars Backar. The halfway point is perfect for a break – bring a picnic, or buy something to eat in Kåseberga.

Haväng - Vitemölla (around 2 hours)
No list of natural sites worth visiting would be complete without a mention of Haväng in Vitemölla. As well as the wonderful light and the views of Hanöbukten Bay, simply walking around in an area that positively exudes prehistoric times is an experience in itself. Havängsdösen Burial Chamber and the many other visible ancient remains create a feeling of affinity with our ancestors. A walk between Haväng and Vitemölla is just the right length. Don’t forget to take some refreshments, as you’ll probably spend longer there than you expected, and take a few detours so you don’t just follow the beach there and back.
