Activities with STF Steninge Hostel - the Coastal Station by the Kattegatt

Kuststation (coastal station) is the name we have chosen for the part of our facility that offers activities. We, Catarina and Per, who operate the hostel, love to hike and ski between the mountain lodges and cottages both here in Sweden and around the world. Our goal is incorporate the magnificent atmosphere of the mountain lodge in our hostel, which is why we have decided to connect activities to the concept “coastal station”.

You can choose to participate in various activities on your own or together with a group and a guide. We can also help you customize and setup activities based on your wishes – you're more than welcome to contact us!

Strong & Smart Training for 55+
We offer 24 hour courses along with living arrangements and food at the hostel for those of you who want to get started with strength and balance exercises in order to prevent the loss of muscle that comes with aging.

Sneaky Early Opening for Steninge Hostel's Plätteri from May 5-8:
Starting on Ascension Day (Thurs, May 5th) we will be serving different varieties of our plättar (small pancakes) such as Power-Plättar, Buckwheat Plättar, Kale Plättar and Blueberry Plättar. Along with these scrumptious treats we serve both salty and sweet side dishes. On June 1st our plätteri will be open (for real).

Scandinavian Championship in Porridge Cooking (May 20th - 22nd) at Steninge Hostel:
The Swedish champion in porridge cooking, Per Carlsson, is, of course, responsible for the porridge served at breakfast at Steninge Hostel. He has even started his own “porridge bar” and on the 21st of May, he will be competing with the other elite Scandinavian cooks for the chance to represent Scandinavia at the World Championship in Porridge Cooking in Scotland in October.

Sunset Hikes:
Every Weds evening in July, we have prepared for transportation to take us to Särdal's lifeguard station where Harplinge's local history society has arranged guided tours. After, we'll hike along the coast towards Steninge with, hopefully, an eye-catching sunset on the horizon.

Kayak and SUP Rentals:
In co-operation with Go Nature in Halmstad, we have, from June 1st – August 31st, kayak available to be rented. SUP (Stand Up Paddle-boards) are also available to be rented. The sea and paddling opportunities are only 250m away from the hostel!

Phyiscal Fridays:
Balance, coordination, strength and motion – every friday at 5:30pm all spring long.
We do interval training (20 seconds of motion and 10 seconds of rest) at different, simple stations. The session lasts about a half hour followed by a chance to cool off in the sea or shower. Afterwards you can kick back and relax in our cozy pub and enjoy the rest of your Friday evening.

The 4th of March will be our seasonal premier for the pub with an after-ski theme.
