Sun, wind and water. Shopping at Gekås Ullared. Salmon fishing in the Ätran river or maybe a night out at Vallarna open air theatre. Several excellent golf courses playable all year round.
Falkenberg in the centre of Halland offers a wealth of activities whatever the season.
When it was first built in 1967, Falkberget was one of Sweden’s finest motels, just a stone’s throw away from the Ätran river and not much further from its mouth on the Kattegatt. It’s got it all, from unique outdoor experiences to sport and shopping. Teeming with salmon, the Ätran river offers fishing and excellent canoeing, while the walk along the river bank stretches right into the heart of Falkenberg and its old town. Cycling is another fantastic way of exploring Falkenberg and its surroundings. The Halland cycle trail Ginstleden runs right past our door and you can hire bikes from us.
Nearby are miles of sandy beaches with salt sea bathing and beautiful walks. If you’re a bird lover, we’re not far from the rocky promontory Morups Tånge which stretches far out to sea and is one of Sweden’s best spots for birds.
There’s plenty of art and crafts in the many rural shops, and the huge shopping centre Gekås Ullared is only 20 minutes away. Falkenberg is a sporting town with facilities for most sports and we are well-known for hosting training camps. We also have Sweden’s only 50-metre long indoor salt water pool, Klitterbadet.
