Ystad & Österlen southeast Skåne
Southeastern Skåne is a small holiday paradise. From Haväng in the north to Ystad in the south the coastline is more than 80 kilometers long. Glittering ocean and golden sand dunes as far as the eay can see. Here you can find hiking trails that are attractive all year around: Through blossoming apple orchards in springtime, alonng fields of yellow rape during the summer or in a landscape of colours in autumn.
The hiking trail Österlenleden, for example, takes you from the coast to the inerior of Skåne with its unique flora and fauna as well as its quiet lakes with good possibilities for fishing. The national bicycle route Sydostleden passes several of the area´s cultural heritage sites, beutiful nature reserves and Sweden´s southernmost national park, Stenshuvud.
On the culinary front, there are fine dining, Michelin-starred restaurants and Toscana-style pizzerias with rustic wooden tables and fairy lights at night. As well as raw food cafe´s for the conscious eater. Ecological and locally produced have long been words of honour and guided food tours are being arranged for those who want to get really close to the producers. Especially delicious food experiences are the Asparagus Days, the Matrundan Tour and Skånes Food Festival in May as well as Kivik´s Apple Market and the harvest festivals in September.
Southeast Skåne offers year-round activities. From relaxing trolley and canoe tours during the summer to yoga classes and retreats during autumn and winter. From exciting jeep rallies and wakeboard surfing in summertime to New Tear dips and raft sauna during the winter, Golf can be played practically the whole year round.
