Falkenberg, Halland

Halland has been said to resemble Sweden in miniature with varied nature that is always within reach – a striking combination of sea and forest: extensive beaches, winding forest paths, majestic seaside and rolling fields – all waiting to be discovered. This table is right next to the sea in Ugglarp, just 20 minutes by car from Falkenberg and less than 30 minutes from Halmstad.

Besides the fine do-it-yourself dining at The Edible Country you can experience some unique attractions in Halland. In Halland good food is always easy to find – produced locally, grown with love and passion, made available in an array of farm shops; sourdough bakeries and great restaurants.  

Discover this region by biking along the coast. Our famous Kattegattleden, awarded the European Cycle Route of the Year 2018, connects Helsingborg to Gothenburg. Halland’s coastline, lakes and rivers offer kite- and windsurfing, paddle-boarding and kayaking – as well as fishing of course. In Halland food and drink experiences are already worth the trip.
