Located just outside the town of Glumslöv along the coastline, you’ll find Glumslövs backar (the area can also be called Hilleshögs dalar). True to its name, it is a region of hills, valleys, and a rocky cliff-lined coastline. The landscape is very similar to the popular tourist island of Ven, which you can see across the distance in the sea. However, it is much more accessible since you can easily get there by train or car.
The hike starts through the valleys of Glumslöv, where you’ll walk through cow pastures surrounded by rolling hills. Once you hit the coastline, you can turn left or right and follow the trails along the water. Here you can see the cascading cliffs, abandoned WWII bunkers, and – my favourite part – the very unique coastline.
What is so unique about the coastline? It’s full of multi-coloured rocks (and bricks)!
Historically, there used to be several brick factories along the coastline between Helsingborg and Landskrona. Many colourful bricks still lay along the coastline, and the residue has changed the colours of the rocks as well to hues or red, orange, and yellow.
