Welcome to Southern Sweden


Skåne (Scania) was Danish property until 1658 and still openly flaunts its uniqueness – the heavy Skånska dialect, a wealth of half-timbered houses and the region’s hybrid flag – a Swedish yellow cross on a red Danish background. Marvellous, multicultural Malmö, Skäne's largest and Sweden's third-largest city is today linked to Copenhagen by the Öresund bridge, a marvel of modern engineering.

South of Malmö, Viking heritage abounds, while to the north, elegant and erudite Lund, is Sweden’s answer to Cambridge. Dramatic cliffs dominate Skåne’s northwestern coast, while its east is a gentler affair with miles of sandy beaches and its medieval showpiece, Ystad.

Northeast of Skåne, forested Blekinge län (county) was the seat of Sweden’s 17th-century sea power; beautifully preserved baroque Karlskrona is the jewel in its crown.

The Swedish Food Walk

This is a walking tour with a brief walk outside (700 metres) from tasting smoked salmon and herring at Malmös fishing quay (Fiskehoddorna) to the new food halls, Malmö Saluhall (Gibraltargatan 6), where we get a peek behind the scenes and sample seasonal specialities at the restaurants and shops. A few examples could be elk sausages, Swedish artisanal cheeses, cloudberry jam, salty Liquorice, Swedish cakes and local beer and kombucha. The tour in the food halls is indoors. The tour includes 8-9 stops for food samples and the amount of food is equivalent of a lighter lunch.All our guides are culinary professionals who have worked as chefs, sommeliers, food journalists and food stylists. All of our tours are small (6-15 participants) so there is enough time for questions and special requests.
