A biodiverse peninsula

The beautiful town of Mölle and the nature reserve Kullaberg have been a dream for us to visit for many years.

It’s quite close to Copenhagen, Denmark where we have always lived. But for some reason, we have never taken the time to visit.

When we recently stayed in Malmö for a few days, we decided to spend the afternoon at the nature reserve on the way back to our rented house in Scania.

We are so happy we did!

Map

Kullaberg Nature Reserve is a peninsula in Scania in Southern Sweden, about 45 minutes from Helsingborg.

The picturesque town of Mölle

The first thing we did was to take a stroll in Mölle.

It’s such a charming little town with a very scenic harbour.

The area is popular for diving with chances of seeing lobsters, eels, catfish and crabs as well as different water sports activities. You can rent both gear and boats in Mölle.

We just walked around enjoying the ocean and the adorable houses.

We particularly loved the historic Grand Hotel – a classic Art Nouveau style seaside hotel from the beginning of the 20th century.

If we one day should stay overnight in Mölle, this would be our choice.

Hiking in Kullaberg Nature Reserve

After walking around Mölle for a while, we headed to Kullaberg to explore for a few hours.

Steep cliffs rising from the sea and lush forests make this spectacular area ideal for hiking and trekking.

The nature reserve offers unique habitats for lots of plants and animals because of the slightly different microclimates that are created on the cliffs, in the forests and around the tide pools on the rocky shoreline.

If you are interested in birds, you will really like Kullaberg.

We drove to different hiking trails and viewpoints visiting RansvikJosefinelust and the lighthouse Kullens fyr at the tip of the peninsula.

Around sunset we found a place near the lighthouse to enjoy a picnic with yummy salads we had with us from Malmö.

The perfect way to end the day.
