For those who want to hike on crowded paths, through deep forests and past solitary villages. You start north Brösarp, passing lilac changing heaths by Drakamöllan and Äskebjär before continuing into the forest through Hörröd, Rebbetuaröd and Agusa. At Andrarum you follow Verkeån back.

If you want to make a beach-close walk along the white sand beaches, you start for example at Kåseberga and head north past Löderup's beach bath, Hagestad and Sandhammaren's nature reserve, Mälarhusen and Borrby beach bath. The bathing possibilities are many, while many ships have gone in quack among the moving sand terns.

Do you know for a more cultural-historical tour you start at Stenshuvud and walk north towards Haväng. Here you pass the ancient castle up on the mountain, the Kiviksgraven and Ängakåsen, Piratenstatyn and the market field, the site of the mythical iron age place Maletofta, and finish at Havängsdösen at Verkeån's outlet.
