  • TURA

To "Tura" is a local expression for taking a ferry crossing the straight without jumping off in Helsingør. Once on board you can enjoy the beautiful view and maybe order "two red and one green?". You go back and forth until you get ready to jump off. Our neighbor in Denmark offers beautiful alleys, good food and lots of culture so we can really recommend a stop in Helsingør.


A historically refined place, popularly called Spritan. Here you will find everything from art, galleries and paddle courts, to shops with shopping for the conscious. 
A perfect excursion destination that offers something for everyone. Have a coffee at the café, shop, treat yourself to a treat at some of the lounges and enjoy a nice dinner at the restaurant. 


Vallåkra, the little gem just south of Helsingborg. Start with lunch at beautiful Wallåkra Stenkärlsfabrik, which is nestled in the valley of Råån, part of the nature reserve Borgen. Here, rich vegetation and wildlife is combined with history, pottery and high-class food. In the small factory, stone vessels are still manufactured from the mud of the area. Perhaps you will find a new favorite to decorate the kitchen with?

Vallåkra has more to offer! What does Enkla Ting, Heddas Hus och Hillesdal have in common? They are all lifestyle stores filled with decor, clothing, plants and much more. This is where you will find the little unique things that are not already in every Swedish home. Take good time at each place, and combine a coffee at Hillesdal's cozy café.

You should not miss the Tomato´s House either. Here they grow tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, chili and lots of other things. You can find everything freshly harvested from the greenhouse in the shop. If you do not want to eat the goodies as they are , much is already refined with marmalades, jam and a lot more. The Tomato's house also sells various kinds of bread and really tasty pastries. Are you hungry, don´t miss a visit to the restaurant and their homemade tomato pie or maybe their super tasty tomato soup.
