Between the 10th and 17th of September 7,000 hikers from across Europe are expected to come to Skåne in southern Sweden to participate in Eurorando, Europe’s biggest international hiking event.

The ultimate hiking party!

This year no less than 26 Skåne municipalities are collaborating to offer

  • 82 day hikes
  • 40 evening activities
  • 10 full-day outings

Initiated by the European Ramblers’ Association (ERA), which has over 2.6 million organised members, Eurorando was launched in 2001, and takes place every five years in different European locations.

Our featured image is from the Söderåsen ridge, which is a popular hiking area and National Park, about 30 km east of Helsingborg.

Our recommendation for hikers planning to visit Skåne

Check the above website even if you cannot make it to the event in September. The website contains detailed descriptions of hikes, with maps (pdf). See this page for example: www.eurorando2016.com/node/48 . The website is very useful if you plan to visit Skåne this summer and want to get out into its great nature on your own.

I do hope they won’t take the website down after the event.
