Rambling from Glumslöv to Landskrona (Sweden)

This is a wonderful coastal walk, easily accessible from Malmö by train. The train goes from Malmö Central Station to Glumslöv, a small village just off the coast of Skåne in Southern Sweden. Stepping off in Glumslöv, there is a small grocery store near the train station to pick up supplies. There are different routesContinue reading “Rambling from Glumslöv to Landskrona (Sweden)”

Rambling to Kullen Lighthouse (Sweden)

Another ramble do-able as a day-trip from Malmö, and so worth it. Following Google Maps, we took train and bus connections (two busses) from Malmö to Mölle. While the connections were a grind, it was worth the inconvenience. In Mölle, stop for breakfast or a fika at the Mölle Krukmakeri. The coffee is delicious andContinue reading “Rambling to Kullen Lighthouse (Sweden)”

Rambling and camping in Stenshuvud’s National Park (Sweden)

Rambling and camping in Stenshuvud’s National Park from Malmö with a three-year-old was worth the heavy pack. The National Park is wonderful, with fairytale forest trails and a long sandy beach. We took a train and bus connection from Malmo to Södra Mellby and then followed the Google Maps directions for walking into the park.Continue reading “Rambling and camping in Stenshuvud’s National Park (Sweden)”

Bike-rambling around Älmhult (Sweden)

This area of Kronoberg County—around Älmhult—may not be particularly glamorous, but it made for a charming and simple weekend outing from Malmö with a kid. There is at least one clean, comfortable and affordable rental near the lake at Möckelns badplats (with bikes for rent). While this apartment was located a few kms outside theContinue reading “Bike-rambling around Älmhult (Sweden)”

Rambling in Söderåsen National Park (Sweden)

It rained, the entire time. But, the 7 or so km loop following the blue trail to and from the Skäralid entrance in Söderåsen National Park was quiet, green and even manageable for a three-year-old. At Liagärden, we stayed overnight in an open shelter, with the not-so-quiet company of a field mouse. The park wasContinue reading “Rambling in Söderåsen National Park (Sweden)”

Running Ystad to Ales Stenar & back (Sweden)

Of the running variety. I ran the coast from Ystad to Ales Stenar for a total of about 40km. Shooting season at the military base was on hold, so I was able to cover most of this ground via the rolling ‘hills’ that lounge the coast with spectacular views of the water and cliffs. FromContinue reading “Running Ystad to Ales Stenar & back (Sweden)”
