Hiking Trails

Our 5 best hiking trails around Torekov

HALLAND’S VÄDERÖ
Hallands Väderö (Halland Weather Island) is a beautiful area, situated just outside Torekov. The whole island is a nature reserve, and especially given its vastness is one of Sweden’s most beautiful places. Around the island there are several marked hiking trails that take you around forest landscapes, open countryside and along cliffs and sandy beaches. Be sure to visit the lighthouse and the Weather Museum. The harbor seals that dot the island are one of its most beautiful and famous features, so make sure to keep an eye out.

AROUND GREVIE BACKAR
5 km | 1.5 hours
The Grevie hillside is full of stone ridges that abound with exciting history. The views of the rolling countryside and Skälderviken are breathtaking. Large parts of these slopes are occupied by open farmland, but there are also smaller forested areas, covered fields and wetlands. A gorgeous and extraordinary experience are the thousands of protected Pasque flowers, whose blue violet color bathes the southern slopes during the last half of April.
