Hiking in Sudret, April 27

Furthest south, or in Sudret which it is also called, the landscape opens up and you discover the lush, leafy part of our island. With the sea close at hand on nearly all sides, there is a wealth of culture, wild rabbits and fantastic coastal stretches to explore.  This day we will explore Sudret, with highlights such as Husrygg, Hoburgen and Holmhällar. Distance: approx. 15km
