About the most beautiful road in Halland
In connection with the 150th anniversary of the Swedish National Road Administration, the stretch of road between Askome and Gällared in inland Falkenberg was voted the most beautiful road in Halland. And with good reason. The road hugs the Ätran river and is offers amazing views. On some stretches, the road even passes over the water.
The 15-kilometre road starts in Askome, taking you along Ätraforsdammen and onwards through a rural landscape and passing through several great picnic spots with tables and benches along the way. Yngeredsforsen is part of Ekomuseum Nedre Ätradalen and is well worth a visit. As you get closer to Gällared, the forest framing both sides of the Ätran river grows denser. There is a wealth of different flora and fauna here, such as wood cow-wheat, garden speedwell and butterfly orchid.
There is no separate bike path, but you should have no problems biking here as there are very few cars on the road.
