Höganäs - Ängelholm
Degree of difficulty
You cycle across the stunning Kullahalvön peninsula, full of art, farm shops and flea markets. The stretch is a mix of low rolling open fields and high hilly terrain with fantastic views.
After Höganäs you’ll pass by small harbours and bathing beaches such as Strandbaden and Nyhamnsläge. The trip continues across the beautiful, dramatic Kullahalvön peninsula. Just after Lerhamn is Krapperup Fortress, dating back to the 1500s.
On the furthest tip of Kullahalvön peninsula is the Kullaberg naturereserve, and if you have time for a detour, it’s well worth a visit. Kullaberg offers a variety of activities, including hiking and rock climbing. The highest point – Håkull – is 187 metres above sea level.
When you once again reach the sea, you’ll pass by the villages of Arild, Skäret, Jonstorp and Norra Häljaröd, and there are several nice cafes along this stretch.
On the way in towards Ängelholm is Kronoskogen. In the southern part of this forest, known as Sibirien (Siberia), there is an in teresting UFO monument.

Ängelholm – City of activities and experiences!
Six kilometres of sandy beach, crystal clear water and pleasant sanddunes– Ängelholm, beautifully located in Skälderviken bay between the Bjärehalvön and Kullahalvön peninsulas, tempts you with magnificent nature experiences.
The Rönne å river winds through the town, enticing you to go canoeing or fishing. If you’re lucky you might catch some salmon, pike or perch, and if you’re passing through during the summer, a trip on the Laxen sightseeing boat is recommended.
In a leafy deciduous forest in the middle of town, you’ll find Ängelholms Hembygdspark, a wonderful oasis for all the family. It features a zoo with Nordic animals, five different museums and a delightful playground. Will you dare to go on the walkway high up among the treetops?
The railway museum and Ängelholm aviation museum are two museums suitable for the entire family, and in central Ängelholm you’ll find everything from small, cosy shops and cafes to restaurants where you can enjoy local produce.

Sweden’s right of public access is a unique opportunity for everyone to roam freely in the countryside. But you also need to take responsibility for animal and plant life and show consideration for land owners and other visitors. Don’t disturb – don’t destroy, in other words. The right of public access is limited in national parks and nature reserves. It is always you as the person visiting the countryside who bears responsibility for being aware of the rules that apply in the area that you are visiting.
Also remember to keep the cycle path free of litter – take your rubbish with you to the nearest bin!
