Skåne offers creative, unusual and authentic experiences within comfortable distances of each other. There are extensive plains, undulating fields of rapeseed and 400 kilometres of coastline in three directions with long, inviting sandy beaches, as well as deep forests in the central and north-eastern parts, and steep rocky precipices in the northwest. The rural areas and the charming fishing villages are close to the cities, with cosmopolitan Malmö in the southwest, Helsingborg in the northwest and Kristianstad in the northeast. The island of Hven is known as the pearl in the middle of the Öresund Sound, and is an ideal place for cycling. Skåne is neither one thing nor the other. Skåne has a bit of everything.
