To do


Enjoy in the pool & hot tub

Cool off in the pool or relax in one of our two hot tubs in the garden. Sitting outside in +37-39°C water and breathing fresh air after a lovely bike ride in the surroundings, a walk in Tosteberga meadows, or if you just feel a little frozen, is lovely. Both for body and soul. Winter as summer.

Each vessel holds eight people. The pool and hot tub are only for the hotel's overnight guests.


One private hour is included in the room price.


Enjoy a bike ride

When you want to go a little further and enjoy the wind, nature and cultural landscape. Borrow a bike and you'll get to Trolle Ljungby's castle in a quarter of an hour. Or why not cycle to Landön, which in the summer is a park area with a rest area, toilet, bathing jetty and dance floor.

You can borrow the bikes for free - you can bring your own bike helmet


Boule-tournament with friends

We have a newly constructed boules court that is used extensively by our guests.

So why not gather some friends for a boules tournament at Bodelssons by the Sea and book a table in the restaurant and enjoy a three-course dinner or book one of our hotel packages and stay overnight?

Tosteberga meadows

From Bodelssons, it is about 500 meters to the nature reserve Tosteberga ängar, one of the most interesting pieces of the coast's pastures. The area is located on a headland along the flat and broken coast and alternates between open, herbaceous grassy areas and dense scrub dominated by hawthorn, sedge and rosehip, but it is never far to views of the boulder-rich beaches, shallow reefs, skerries and islands out in the sea.


The flora is diverse with, among other things, goldenrods, mountain sedges, field nock and the orchid St. Per's keys in the spring, which are replaced by solstice, blood fist, wild flax and bride's bread during the summer. In the thickets there are plenty of small birds such as nightingales, garden warblers, blackcaps, thorn warblers, sparrowhawks and others.

During autumn, many waders rest along the shore and during winter you can see large flocks of seabirds in the water outside. In winter, sea eagles and other birds of prey usually stay in the area.


The nature reserve was established by the county board in 1963, with the aim of protecting a scenic area with an interesting flora and species-rich birdlife. The area covers 50 hectares and is part of the EU's ecological network of protected areas, Natura 2000.

There are two excellent hiking trails on Tosteberga meadows.

Stroll through the village

Tosteberga village is located in the northern part of Hanö Bay and is an oasis, a small picturesque fishing village with roots in the 17th century. Near the border between Scania and Blekinge, about two miles from Kristianstad, Åhus and Sölvesborg.

The area preserves the character of an older cultural landscape and is located in a coastal landscape unique to Skåne, with coastal meadows and skerries with many endangered and rare nature types and species. The open paddocks and stone fenced yards are significant, as are the older buildings in the harbor, by the sheds and drying areas. 

Just over 100 people live in Tosteberga and, unlike many other villages along the coasts, this one has not been taken over by leisure or commercial development. Here reigns ancient stillness, a rich bird life, protected areas for roaming and fantastic nature. 


Just over 15 minutes' walk from the hotel, through the village, is the village's small harbour. Well worth a visit. Here you can swim from the floating jetty during the summer or enjoy a sauna and study sea eagles during the winter. In harsh winters, 40 - 50 ringed eagles have been read, but since the majority are unmarked, the area is estimated to be visited by close to 150 sea eagles.


Trolle Ljungby manor

Bodelssons are located five kilometres from Trolle-Ljungby Manor.

The history of Trolle-Ljungby Manor goes back to the 13th century. The estate is owned by the Trolle-Wachtmeister family who lives at the castle.


Trolle-Ljungby, which was called only Ljungby up until 1830, is, with its 12,000 hectares of land, one of the largest private estates in Sweden. The largest beech forest in the country is found here, and the manor house is a magnificent example of Swedish Renaissance architecture. The main complex, which is surrounded by a moat, consists of three two-stored brick buildings joined together around a courtyard open to the north.

The gardens are among the most beautiful in Sweden. They were mentioned by Linnaeus who visited them in 1749 on his journey through Scania. Immediately south of the moat is the chapel with its 13th-century baptismal font, an altarpiece from 1639 and the tombs of the Gyldenstierne and Coyet families.

The main building houses a major art collection, many exquisite pieces of furniture and other objects from various periods.

Strangest of all, however, is the “Ljungby drinking horn and hunting whistle”. The style of the objects is Gothic. The horn was probably made in the late 15th century. The curved whistle is made of bone and is believed to date back to the late Middle Ages. A curious detail is that it can be played from either end.

On the manor, you are welcome to visit the Viltboden Farm Shop or the bakery. You also find a microbeer brewery in the area.

Mina's Chocolate Studio



One day among Kjugekull's large rock cliffs, through the beech forest and on the open pastures on the slope towards the lake Ivösjön, is usually an unforgettable experience.


Here you find an outdoor museum and in the summertime the Café is open. The regional museum has made an exhibition that shows the visitor around the area and tells about the history of the natural and cultural landscape.


Millions of years ago, most of Skåne was below sea level, but on Kjugekull there are remains that show that the hill is more than 75 million years old.

The view from is outstanding and the road up offers a geological time trip. The varied landscape takes the visitor back to the time when Skåne had a tropical climate. The traces of the ice age's powerful intervention in the landscape, in the form of pebbles and boulders, are clearly visible. You can follow people in the trails through millennia and on the top there is an ancient monument - perhaps our ancestors built a castle or grave mound here.


Bouldering on Kjugekull 

Bouldering is a sport that involves climbing large boulders without any form of safety equipment. Kjugekull is the largest and best place in Sweden for going bouldering. At the moment there are 1,400 different climbs and variations.

The boulders are normally large, round and solitary, distributed among the sparse beech woods and undulating pastures. It is a wonderful setting, which makes the experience something out of the ordinary.

All sorts of climbing problems are represented at Kjugekull:  low sit starts and high problems, delicate slabs and steep roofs, pumpy traverses and long dynos. The climbing is often technical and friction dependant and rarely very steep. You can climb on Kjugekull almost all year around. 




Approximately 8 kilometres from Tosteberga you find a picturesque 50 kilometres route around the biggest lake of Scania.


The route is called Humleslingan (The Hop Loop). The landscape is characteristic rather for the Dalarna province (a cradle of Swedish folklore traditions) than for the South of Sweden. Local climate is suitable to grow grapes, hops and apple trees.


The history of the region dates back to the Cretaceous, when giant reptiles lived in the depths of the Ivösjön lake. The vicinity of the lake is the site of palaeontological findings and teeth of dinosaurs are not rare to be spotted... Bromölla is the only place in Sweden, offering fossil hunting with guaranteed finds of fossils.


Are you interested in the 1900s industrial history, you might want to see Iföverken first toilet, then you should visit Iföverken industrial museum in Bromölla. All over the world you can encounter bathrooms from Ifö.


The old hop drying plant - Humletorkan - brews own bier with locally grown and dried hop cones. In vicinity of Humletorkan there is a neolitic sacrificial site called Gudahagen which is nowadays a place where a popular medieval fair is organized each year in September.


Ivö island is connected by ferry with the mainland. A visit to a medieval church is highly recommended - specially in May when the apple trees are in blossom. There is another medieval church on our route - the one in Gualöv with well preserved frescos.


A visit at the Bäckaskog castle will allow us to discover the traces of the times when the residence was a monastery. The castle nowadays is renowned for its regional cuisine.


We can give you a map with all the natural and cultural attractions, hiking trails, biking trails, riding route and waterway, fishing and activities available along Humleslingan.


Havsdrakarnas hus

The house of the Sea dragons

In the waiting room at Bromölla railway station, you find an exhibition of what the residents during the Creatceous period have left behind. 80 million years old business cards from a bygone era.


At that time the surroundings were covered by a hot and, for the most part, shallow sea very much like an archipelago. Our little part of the world was then located roughly where the Mediterranean is located today.


The often gigantic dinosaurs walked around on land and the sky was crowded with Pterodactyls and birds of that time. The sea was literally buzzing with life. Most conspicuous were, of course, the large marine reptiles – the sea dragons.


Deposits from this period and remains which bear witness to the inhabitants of this sea are preserved under our feet in a large contiguous limestone section of bedrock called the Kristianstad Basin.


The exhibition materials have been collected from the Bromölla-Kristianstad area by Filip Lindgren over a period of about 25 years.

His goal has been to produce an exhibition that would be entertaining, clear, and of interest to the general public.

Lilla Kungsleden

The King's little road gives you a magnificent feeling with its manor environments and fast waters convey.


The winding road from Tosteberga to Nymölla (4 km) is considered among one of the more beautiful motorcycle roads in Sweden. Not less nice on a bike without a motor or by foot.


The trail Lilla Kungsleden is 4 kilometers long and starts close to the town Bromölla and past trough Nymölla (but from Tosteberga you can connect the opposite way, in Nymölla). 


Along the trail, you will enter both beech and mixed deciduous forests.

During the spring, the ground is covered in wood anemones. Common birds in the area include the chaffinch, the titmouse, and the nightingale. You will also find the kingfisher, the dipper and the scarlet rose finch. Among birds of prey, buzzards and red kite are dominating species.
