Nature

The countryside around Rebbetuaröd is varied with fields, beech woodland, pastures and water courses. Rare and threated butterfly species thrive here.
To the south you follow a gravel road through planted woodland and out on a boardwalk into the more species rich wet woodland. At Hallabjär you walk along forest tracks through beech woodland of varying age and character. Closer to Agusa the landscape is once again more open, with pastures and fields. Along the gravel track towards the camp site at Agusa you pass the impressive esker of Jären. Here there is tall beech woodland and by the camp site you have a view over the wildlife enclosure with red deer and wild boar.

Cultural History

The area around Rebbetuaröd is a gold mind for those who love historic monuments. Here you can find the remains of farms, drove roads, a mill, an old arched bridge and several small earth cellars.
Hallabjär was once one of the most secret places in Skåne. A radar centre consisting of a 200 metre long tunnel and a three and a half storey high underground building covering 400 square metres was situated here. From this centre, the military carried out surveillance of the skies 24 hours a day.
Take a look in under the spruce trees at the cross roads just north of Agusa. Over a long, long time, feet, and hooves have, along with rain eroded the soil and created a hollow - a sunken road.
Agusa is an old style village with stone walls and several old, well-preserved buildings. One of them is the cottage Agusastugan. Anna Mårtensson lived here up until 1944, when she left the cottage in exactly the same condition as when she moved in. It is owned by the Albo Härads Local History Society and is open to the public.
