Address: Alunbruket 101, 273 57 Brösarp

Treat yourselves to time together on an adventure containing both hiking and cycling in south-eastern Skåne and along some of the most beautiful parts of the Skåneleden Trail.

Everything is prepared – the only thing you need to bring is a pair of comfortable shoes. Luggage transport, two nights’ accommodation and all food is included.

Day 1 Arrival and Dinner
You’ll arrive in the afternoon/evening to the romantic 18th century village of Alunbruksbyn which, with its surroundings, looks like it was taken from the Lord of the Rings film trilogy. Once you have your room at the charming Alunbruket B&B, you can borrow bicycles and go on a little exploratory ride, for instance to the nearby Christinehofs Slott (Christinehof Castle) and its eco park. Once back in Alunbruksbyn, there is a light dinner, which you can either barbecue yourselves or have served to you.

Day 2 Full Day Hike
Breakfast is served at Kaffestugan Alunbruket (Alunbruket Coffee House), which is Sweden’s oldest coffee house. It was opened in 1930 by Hilda Nilsson who started serving home-made baked goods in her parents’ home (built in 1705). The coffee house is now run by Hilda’s great grandchild Johan Carlsson, and was named one of Sweden’s best cafés by White Guide in 2014.
After breakfast, you’ll be provided with a generous picnic from Kaffestugan Alunbruket, packed in a comfortable hiking rucksack, as well as a good map. You can then head off along the Skåneleden Trail towards the sea. The trail takes you past the red hills of Alunbruket (the Alum Works), and you’ll pass Hallamölla (Skåne’s highest waterfall), ramble through old, leafy woods made up of hornbeam, oak, lime and beech, and hike across Brösarp’s northern hills. We’ll transport your luggage, so you can walk easily with light rucksacks.

The hike is 15 – 20 kilometres long and includes varied terrain – past cultural landscapes, leafy woods and moor and hill landscapes. You’ll then arrive to one of our collaboration partners, where you will be provided with dinner and accommodation of a high standard. You can choose one of the following:
You can hike all the way down to the sea if you would like a slightly longer hike, or use the bicycles that are ready and waiting for you where you’re staying.

Day 3 Cycling
Following your second over-night stay and a sturdy breakfast, you’ll head out on comfortable Trek bikes. The picnic is kept in panniers, so you don’t need to get sweaty from carrying a rucksack. You’ll also be provided with a map of recommended cycle paths, as well as a list of sights that are well worth a visit. You can shape your cycling day to suit your own interests and wishes.
