Stories of

Båstad & Bjäre Peninsula

Adventure and adrenaline

The Bjäre Peninsula and Hallandsåsen offer plenty of opportunities for adventure and adrenaline through breathtaking experiences. Here there are meters of altitude, varied nature and a long attractive stretch of coast. In addition, deep forests, secret paths and sea cliffs that invite you to play of the more exciting kind. If you are not already well versed in adventure, there are many passionate organizers who can help you get out into nature for adventure and adrenaline.

Learn to kitesurf

The Bjäre Peninsula is a well-known destination for kite surfers. When the winds blow just right and the waves roll in, they appear from all over southern Sweden, regardless of the season. Both Båstad Kite and Kites & Things learn to handle winds, kites and boards in safe and secure conditions. You can also only rent equipment if you already possess the necessary skills.

Cycle on trails with a guide

Around Båstad there are more and more marked cycle paths in the forest. But if you want to cycle for hours on undiscovered trails on Hallandsåsen on a mountain bike, then you probably need to hire a guide. Ridge Cycling have experience and knowledge. In addition, bicycles are available for rent, whether you cycle on your own or not. 

High speed at sea

If you like high speeds, GoCats might be your thing. The activity can be described as go-carts, but on the water. Small rubber boat-catamarans of 50hp run in a fixed course. The event company Spirit Event is behind this adrenaline rush that starts from the harbor in Båstad.

Take the lift up and cycle down

The choice lock Downhill is about half an hour east of Båstad. Here there are a bunch of trails down Hallandsåsen, adapted to all levels of downhill cyclists. Children are also welcome. If you don't have equipment, you can rent it.   

Quick kicks

Kungsbygget Adventure Park offers zipline, high-altitude track, summer tobogganing and much more. In the middle of the forest and with maximum use of Hallandsåsen's altitude meter, you will find the facility. It's all a family-friendly destination and a perfect, titillating and local alternative to the big city theme parks.    

Snorkeling in clear water

On Halland's Väderö, where you go by boat from Torekov or (high season only) Båstad, the water is clear and fine. Here it is wonderful to snorkel and watch the life under the water's surface. Perfect and simple activity that only requires snorkel gear and swimming skills.

Discover Skåne's Amazon

Rent a canoe or kayak from Stisses and make your way along the winding & beautiful Rönne Å or follow the river out to sea. There are cozy places to stay overnight along the river.
