Nature and life

Between the charming medieval towns of Simrishamn and Ystad, you ride through open landscapes, past ancient rock carvings and across golden rapeseed fields. Nature in this part of Skåne offers unique flora and intriguing fauna. Something new awaits round nearly every bend. Visit the fishing spots teeming with life, the mighty Ale stones, the interesting vineyards, the Sandhammaren nature reserve, the cosy cafés and the local restaurants. Or just head over to one of the long white sandy beaches, lay down in the soft sand and enjoy the amazing view. Southeast Skåne has a lot to offer a visiting cyclist.

Welcome to the first segment of Sydkustleden.

Here are our favorites on segment 1:
