Visit southern Skåne!

Taking a day off to explore southern Skåne is something definitely worth doing. Down to Trelleborg harbor, where many ferries depart to international waters, then following the coast road to Smygehuk, you can find the most southern point in Sweden!

Continuing the road to Ystad, you pass through many small cozy villages, but drive carefully, it seems that rabbits, cats and other animals seem to like to cross the road only when a car is approaching! And there are not many cars around 🙂

From Ystad, the next stop has to be Kåseberga where the Ale’s Stones are located (Ales Stenar), a monument of stones, in a shape of a ship, dating back from 500-1000CE. Stone ships were build during the Viking Era, between 800-1050. Although the exact meaning is unclear, archaeological diggings point to a burial site. Boulders from old graves have been used to build the Ale’s stones.

Make sure to catch the sunset at this place, the pictures will tell you why.
