Summer 2012 Roadtrip: Stenshuvud Nationalpark

In the summer of 2012 I went to see a well known national park here in Sweden. It is called Stenshuvud Nationalpark and is located a little south of Kivik (Skåne, Eastcoast).

What it is all about is to walk into the forrest and move yourself toward the 97 meter high top. Perhaps you walk about a couple of kilometers to get there. And from the 97-meter-high peak there is a
panoramic view of the sea, you can see the north, the south, west, east. You can see the sandy fields in
shore, the flower-rich meadows and over deciduous forest, which extends inland. Stenshuvud is one of the richest and most varied national parks in Sweden. For me who likes to walk this was a nice day, that I ended with a bath in a beach called Rörum. A couple of kilometers south of Stenshuvud nationalpark.

Quite steep to get down here... I tried it but it got to steep for my taste further down.
