Join an exciting adventure that stretches across space nad time. Lundalandsleden is a historic walking trail between Uppåkra, Lund and Dalby that together forms a triangle in the landscape. The entire trail is roughly 36 km on foot and is divided into three day’s marches with good connecrtions with public transport. Maps and broschures will, from July and onwards, be available at Skåne’s tourist agensies. We will also provide a downloadable version on this webpage. Until then, you will find a map of the trail in Everytrail here.

About Lundalandsleden

Lundalandsleden will take you across a time frame of thousands of years until the modern society, and will include culture as well as nature. We will walk from prehistoric Uppåkra, a power centre from the Iron Age, to the foundation of Lund and further onwards to Dalby as an early bishop’s seat with cloister activity. The sites and places will be connected in a historic web with the visible above ground and the hidder treasures in the soil.

Lundalandsleden is a cooperative project with Leaderområdet Lundaland, with the purpose of developing trail options and to create a living countryside. Uppåkra Archaeological Centre owns the project, which is financed with grants from Leader Lundaland. The historian Matz Jörgensen have presented texts and image material for the walking trail. He has written several books about the history of the landscape, and has worked on the Linneus Trail (Linnéleden).

The trails between Uppåkra- Lund and Lund- Dalby are mostly connected with Pilgrimsvägen (pilgrimage) Skåne Blekinge which connects the pilgrim sites Santiago de Compostela in Spain, Vadstena in Sweden and Nidaros in Norway,  www.pilgrimsvagen.se.
