Vambåsa hagmarker naturreservat

Perfect for walkers, Vambåsa hagmarker nature reserve nestles in an attractive manor house landscape. The valuable pastures are rich in flora and fauna. There are also many ancient monuments. The grave field at Hjortahammar is the best known.

Vambåsa hagmarker consists of two separate areas. One is between the E22 and Stora Vambåsa gård. The other is further south on the coast, bordering the road over to Almö. There is a birdwatching tower in the southern area from which birds can be seen on the nearby wetlands.

Furthest to the south is Hjortahammar grave field, one of the biggest sites of ancient monuments in Blekinge. There are 120 visible prehistoric graves here comprising mounds, stone circles, tri-radial cairns, stone ships and raised stones. The grave field is very visible and prominent in the landscape along an esker.

In early summer the meadows in the nature reserve are filled with flowers, including several orchids. Much of the nature reserve is grazed and the rich flora and fauna is linked to this grazing tradition.

The rules for the nature reserve are shown in the link below, but, for example, you are not allowed to pitch a tent or park a caravan, light a fire, let a dog off the lead, or drive a motor vehicle other than on roads where this is permitted.
