Flax Cabin, 7km | MAP (JPG) | TEXT (PDF)
An easily walked, slightly hilly route on both surfaced and unsurfaced, lightly trafficked roads.  The area has been farmed since the stone age and flint tools are often found out in the fields.  Today’s farmers tend to have another source of income on the side.  But farmers are incredibly important for the countryside’s beauty.  We still see a varied, well taken-care-of landscape with grazing animals.  Rocky juniper meadows, typical of the area and dry stone walls separate the fields.  The walk stops and starts in Kölleröd where there is a design store, contemporary gallery, café and the possibility of staying overnight…

The Cannibal, 16km | MAP (JPG) | TEXT (PDF)
This is a diverse route, providing a host of unusual experiences and fires the imagination in a variety of ways.  Old-world lanes wind their way along in a quiet, undulating landscape where wood clearings and farmers’ fields alternate.  Most often with infrequent and low levels of traffic.  Dry stone walls enclose or mark out boundaries.  Cattle and sheep graze on the land.  The route begins and ends in the friendly village of Önneköp with possibilities for room and board, grocery shopping and taking coffee…

Katrine’s Favourite, 11km | MAP (JPG) | TEXT (PDF)
There is nowhere to get a coffee and nothing to buy on the Katrine’s Favourite route.  The lightly trafficked gravel road wends and winds its way through undulating countryside.  The northern part of the route is wooded with attractive pathways.  Spruce and beech, maple and oak too.  The area has been farmed since the stone age and flint tools are often found out in the fields, and relics from the self-subsistent society are clearly visible, as they are across Hotspot Kölleröd.  The land is hard to farm with rocks everywhere, but rocks that are vital as hardcore and building material.  Farming is vital to the countryside’s beauty.  We still see a varied, well taken-care-of landscape with grazing animals.  Dry stone walls separate old fields in the open and even in the woods…

The Church, 8km | MAP (JPG) | TEXT (PDF)
A short cycle ride or long walk in the villages of Farhult and Sjököp.  Mostly gravel roads, rolling hills and varying open country and woodland.  Spruce, beech and oak.  Dry stone walls typically of the area.  Sheep and cattle grazing.  The route starts and stops in the small village of Önneköp.  There is a village shop, café, two restaurants, a village shop museum, a cannibal museum and clothes store stocking leather and woolen goods…

Olof’s, 8km | MAP (JPG) | TEXT (PDF)
Hiking with boots is recommended.  Stops two and three are by a footpath which, for short stretches, is a little hard to make out but compensated for with fantastic views.  Try it!  You can always turn back!  Olof Persson (b. 1922) is a farmer from Tattarp who has described his village in prose or poetry, with drawings and sometimes photographs.  Olof helps us realize the faded past where horse drawn deliveries of pigs rabbits and chickens arrived at market in Hörby, the fibrous bark of lime trees was turned into strong, thick rope, hay was dried in stacks and flax was broken, scutched and spun before it could be woven into sheets…

Organic Tour, 20km | MAP (JPG) | TEXT (PDF)
This walk’s setting is rich in cultural heritage with dry stone walls, rock piles, fossils, ancient farmsteads and lanes.  Foxes, elk, roe deer and wild boar are some of the creatures you might see, or perhaps their tracks…

Muscle Power, 15km | MAP (JPG) | TEXT (PDF)
A proper cycle tour down the slopes of Linderodsåsen through the villages of Sjököp and Farhult.  Mostly gravel roads, rolling hills and varying open country and woodland.  Spruce, beech and oak.  Dry stone walls typically of the area.  Sheep and cattle grazing.  The route starts and stops in Långaröds kyrkby.  The turning point is at Vallarum…

Pickelhattakroken (Pickelhaube Bend), 7km | MAP (JPG) | TEXT (PDF)
This tour takes you close to the Fjällmossen (mountain  marsh) wildfowl protection area, an important area for black grouse who have one of their most southerly nesting sites here.  The marsh and its surroundings have been affected by small-scale farming which has taken place here probably since the iron age.  In the beginning the lands were used for grazing livestock, while later the fertile ground was cleared of rocks and used for arable farming.  This is a natural landscape at the same time as being an area of cultural heritage created by the people who have lived here.  This setting is rich in cultural heritage with dry stone walls, rock piles, fossils, ancient farmsteads and lanes…

Renaissance, 22km | MAP (JPG) | TEXT (PDF)
The route starts and finishes in the village of Pärup.  The road alternates between both surfaced and unsurfaced.  The landscape goes from being gently hilly, rich in cultural heritage with dry stone walls, rock piles, fossils, ancient farmsteads and lanes to being open with wide, cultivated fields.  We see a varied, well taken-care-of landscape with grazing animals.  Farming is vital for maintaining the countryside’s beauty.  Just outside of the route is Pias Dekor (www.piasdekor.se) in Oderup and the organic farm Den Gamles Gård (www.dengamlesgard.se) in Sniberup.  Both welcome visitors…

The Stork, 20km | MAP (JPG) | TEXT (PDF)
This is a varied tour providing some great and unusual experiences.  The route begins and ends in the friendly village of Önneköp with possibilities for room and board, grocery shopping and taking coffee (www.onnekop.com).  Start the tour in the village centre by turning left towards Kivik along the busy main road.  Pass the sign with www.kulturvandring.se.  We really recommend that you try Helena’s Hikes one more time.  Turn off at the gravel road called ‘Linjen’ and keep on it until you cross ‘Degebergavägen’ and see the sign to ‘Färg från förr och Kafé Kagan’…
