Excursion tip in Skåne: Verkeån Agusa-Hallamölla

The nature reserve Verkeån Agusa-Hallamölla in Kristianstad, Sjöbo & Tomelilla municipality can boast about having Skåne's highest waterfall, Hallamölla, with a total drop height of 23 meters.


Linderödsåsen's springs provide water for the river that runs through the reserve's varied landscape - with forests inland, meadows and fields in the central parts, and sandy slopes towards the sea. Swamp forests along the river clean the water with their roots and create oxygen, which means that many aquatic insects and fish such as trout and rockfish thrive in the river. They in turn attract kingfishers, grey wagtail, and white-throated dipper to the area to feed. When the grey wagtail comes to Sweden to breed in the spring, you can often see them jumping around on moss-covered rocks in search of insects in the river.


Hallamölla waterfall is located in the western parts of the reserve next to Hallamölla mill. Here, the landscape is dominated by hilly terrain with coniferous and deciduous forest. The moist air creates habitats for many unusual lichens and mosses. A number of rare beetles that need access to decaying trees to thrive have been found in the forests, such as the lesser stag beetle and anoplodera sexguttata.


If you go to the northern part of the reserve, you will see the Järens Åsrygg, an impressive rolling stone ridge.


There are several marked trails to choose from in the reserve, including the Skåne Trail.


We at Treefling think it is important to spend time in nature, take care of our nature and treat yourself to a walk in the beautiful nature reserve, Verkeån Agusa-Hallamölla.
