Halland, län (county) of southern Sweden, coextensive with the traditional landskap (province) of Halland. It is a low undulating region of heaths and ridges that rise above gently sloping sandy beaches. The coastline is smooth with few anchorages. Four rivers—the Viskan, Ätran, Nissan, and Lagan, famous for their salmon and long harnessed for hydroelectricity—cross the county as its mentioned in Halland Sweden map. Originally part of Denmark, the region was ceded to Sweden in 1645 after having been conquered by Charles X. Halland beaches and recreational areas make tourism a vital part of its economy.
