Gently winding trails, fine gravel roads, demanding climbs and fast-paced runs – Halland has it all. So mountain bikers of all levels will have a terrific time here. We have open fields, thick forests, trails that go around lakes; so you can take in the natural beauty on your ride. Just make sure you always pay attention when you are out in the woods. Keep an eye out for animals and others like you who want to experience our beautiful landscapes.
Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced rider, you will always find a trail that’s perfect for you. We have one of Sweden’s premier beech forests where the trails are fast and the slopes are many. And on the border with Skåne you will find Vallåsen bikepark where you can zip downhill, tackling the curves on our prepared trails.
Haverdal Nature Reserve
The Haverdal Nature Reserve is one of Halland’s oldest nature reserves. With the sea on its doorstep, you’ll find Mother Nature in one if her finer moods. Pine and conifer trees stand shoulder to shoulder with sand dunes and picturesque beaches. The reserve is criss-crossed with trails and you will also find Sweden’s highest sand dune, Lynga Sanddyna, here. It’s 36 meters high and offers spectacular views of the surrounding forest and the sea.
Biskopstorp’s Nature Reserve
East of Kvibille, just outside Halmstad lies Biskopstorp’s Nature Reserve, one of the largest in southern Sweden. The mountains are cloaked in deciduous trees that change colour with the season. This makes for a very scenic biking spot at all times of the year. Pro tip: Don’t miss this place as you will be biking amongst some of Halland’s oldest oak and beech forests here.
Vallåsen Bike Park
Vallåsen Bike Park is smack on the border between Halland and Skåne. This is one of Sweden’s best parks for downhill mountain biking. On the northern slope of the Hallandsåsen, you will discover several different trails with varying degrees of difficulty weaving down the mountains. There are also some fantastic single tracks here.
