The two neighbouring coastal cities Båstad and Torekov are known for being some of Sweden’s most popular summer vacation destinations.

The Hallandåsen and Bjäre peninsula are home to some of the better road biking environments in Sweden.

Go hiking
We welcome you to a rare and beautiful place, with a wealth of hiking trails, activities, experiences and enjoyment. Around 130 kilometers of hiking trails can be found around Bjäre Peninsula. The combination of the hilly landscape of Hallandsåsen and sea gives you breathtaking views and sparkling sea. 

Spend time relaxing
Visit the Kullaberg Nature Reserve: Few places in the Nordic region can match Kullen for the beauty of its natural landscape. With its breezy forests of beech and fir, its romantic grottoes, its vertiginous cliffs that plunge straight into the sea, its cliff-top views over mile after mile of bright blue water, every year Kullen has attracted a steadily increasing flow of visitors from far and wide.

Live well, eat well and hike in the stunning hilly terrain that gives you magnificent views. You can hike from coast to coast across Bjäre Peninsula in one day and end with a cold bath, a seaweed bath or a bath in the warm outdoor pools.

I raced my first Swedish 505 Nationals in Torekov in 1972, with a racing fleet of 55 boats.
At that time we launched from the beach.

I hope to meet you all in Torekov next summer !
