Sights in Österlen - 14 favorites - Skåne

Österlen may be a tiny little part of south-eastern Skåne, but there are plenty of sights there! Everything from historic castles to national parks and tropical white beaches - there are plenty of things to see and do here for the whole family. Here are my 15 favorites!

The priest's bathtub - Sand volcano on Österlen - Skåne

Just outside the fishing village of Vik på Österlen, lies a unique natural phenomenon. The priest's bathtub. Remains of an ancient sand volcano. A volcano? In Scania? And did we really get it right?

Nordic Sea Winery - Almost like in Napa Valley - Skåne

In the middle of the vines on the edge of Simrishamn is the Nordic Sea Winery restaurant. Good food, beautiful design and a dreamy feel of Napa Valley are offered here.

Stenshuvud National Park – Where the waves meet Österlen - Skåne

Stenshuvud National Park is best known for its white sandy beach, but the national park has more to offer. Hike to viewpoints or stroll barefoot in the soft sand. Or just enjoy the sea and the light.

Autumn break on Österlen - Skåne

One more last minute Österlen? Yes, it was actually a lovely (but unplanned) autumn holiday in Sweden's Provence!

Haväng – Among sheep and Stone Age rocks on Österlen - Skåne

Can you get to know a place just by a song's lyrics? After walking across the windswept meadows at Haväng, I'm prepared to believe so.

Brösarp's slopes are for many the very image of Österlen. We have hiked the blue trail over the northern slopes and encountered not only undulating landscapes but also a slightly too close reptile.

A healing autumn day on Österlen

We are going to Österlen and absorbs energy. To think about something other than yesterday's sad farewell. Life goes on for those of us who are left. Nothing stops, even if it feels like it sometimes.
