It is always important that you take extra care when handling fire outdoors and you are responsible for safety.

Bring your own firewood!

Unfortunately, there will be no more firewood put out at the campsites this season - due to theft. Please bring your own if you plan to set a warming fire or cook your meals during your hike.

A unique combination of history and future, nature and adventure

The Hovdala Nature area to the south of Lake Finjasjön is a former estate that is currently being developed to become a destination with high-class Skåne culture and nature. The presence of the military over a period over many years has created a unique landscape. With the sand being left exposed, a desireble environment could be created for a large number of rare spices of flora and fauna.

The countryside at Hovdala is varied and exciting, with vaste panoramas, dense forests, hills and valleys. Large numbers of butterflies, moths and bees are attracted to the warm, sandy fields. The open expanses host wild garden plants such as bistort, musk strawberry and motherwort.

Experience the River Hovdalaån valley with its unique combination of nature and culture - ravines, waterfalls, dams and beech forest alongside the old craftsmen´s village of Broslätt. The valley offers habitats to some of the most diverse ranges of bats in Sweden. The River Hovdalaån is also home of the protected freshwater pearl mussel, which is threatened with extinction.

The beautiful area of Dalleröd hosts broad-leaf forests with alders on the harsh rocky base of gneiss and calcareous earth. Small wooded slopes creep over the hillside, and trees such as beech, oak, European hornbeam and ash are common. The ground is decorated with buttercup anemone, unspotted lungwort, yellow archangel, herb paris, golden saxifrage and ostrich fern, which is the biggest fern in Sweden. The area is rich in birdlife, including the lesser-spotted woodpecker.
