Activities on Billingen Hill

Billingen Hill is a greenbelt area that stretches between the towns of Skövde, Skara and Falköping. There are fifteen table mountains in this region, of which Billingen Hill is one, and all of them have been included in the first Unesco Global Geopark in Sweden. This means that the landscape with these table mountains is geologically unique in the world. You will only find them here and in a handful of other places. There is a total of 16 nature reserves on and around Billingen Hill. With a climate similar to the southern part of County Dalarna, there are plenty of woodland and bogs, and it often snows here during the winter months. 

Riding MTB, climbing or hiking in and around Skövde

The spectacular views from Billingehus tend to blow everyone’s mind straight away, but when it comes to activities, you will find the best at the back of the hotel. Just around the corner from our hotel, you will find Billingen Hill with year-round outdoor pursuits; hiking, cycling, skiing, and many other thrilling experiences.

Cycling & MTB on Billingen Hill

No less than 28 km of mountain bike tracks can be found on and around Billingen Hill, as well as two tarmacked pump tracks, an entertaining bike park and a challenging enduro track, ‘Homerun’. You will also find many beautiful hiking trails and cycling routes in the surrounding areas.


There are some amazing rambling/hiking trails in this area of natural beauty. One of the most popular is the 57-kilometre trail called Billingeleden, which can be done in stages or as a three-day hike.  

You will no doubt have a fantastic experience in the bewitching, magical forest located on the slopes of Billingen Hill.

Upzone High Ropes course

Bring your family or friends along for an adventure where you make your way from platform to platform, 14 metres up in the air amongst the treetops. You do not need to be extremely fit or have previous experience from high ropes courses, but you will probably need some courage.


If you want to try top-rope climbing with a guide, this activity is available for both beginners and intermediates. Perfect for anyone who likes a good challenge or wants to experience nature in a different, extraordinary way.

Taking a dip

Billingebadet is an outdoor swimming bath located quite close to the hotel with a 50-metre pool, and Simsjön is a local lake where you take a dip or go for a swim. Situated 3 km from the recreational area, it offers crystal clear water and three public beaches.


Billingen Hill is a fabulous place for anyone who likes to don their trainers on and go for a run. You will find fitness tracks of more than 10k, as well as plenty of trails in varied terrain. Ideal for trail runs.
