Kullen, Kullaberg, Skåne, Sweden.

Kullen has got to be one of the most beautiful spots in all of Sweden. I’m so happy that we paid a visit one early morning a couple of days ago.

Soooo worth a trip but be aware…it’s not the easiest place to explore. Small children can’t run around as they like and the climbs down the cliffs can be really challenging.

there’s different nature trails you can choose to get around and at some spot there’s actually a shelter so you can stay overnight. The Swedish ” right to public access” is amazing. Too bad not everybody understands how great this is and respects it.

not a bad place to anchor for the night
