Sweden’s foremost beech forest area
Åkulla Bokskogar lies on the border between Falkenberg and Varberg, covering an area of 50 square kilometres. The area contains about 20 lakes and several nature reserves. It is one of Sweden’s foremost beech forest areas given the fact that it is home to a wealth of rare and endangered species.
Hiking for everyone
Åkulla is suitable for the whole family. There are no less than 12 hiking trails here, varying from 1.6 km to 6 km in length. Bring your stroller, dog, running partner, or picnic bag and make a day out of it, choosing the route that suits you best. The trails are also interlinked, making it possible to explore different parts of the area and go on longer hikes. The trails are well marked and interspersed with maps to help guide your way.
