The Småland region is considered the most idyllic part of Sweden and I totally agree. An infinite number of lakes and forests that go on forever. Lots of wildlife and, last but not least, amazing rocky landscapes!
It’s easy to find a beautiful place where you can be yourself. A place of tranquillity to enjoy nature and recharge. For Danes, Sweden is just around the corner and you feel immediately at home.
Together with Visit Sweden I visited 5 beautiful places in Småland, which has left me even more in love with Sweden. If you missed my blog posts about the individual destinations, you can find the highlights right here:
1. Stay on your own little island
The adventure town of Ramoa offers absolutely fantastic accommodation in a tiny house on a little island. You canoe out to the island, which you then have all to yourself. With a comfortable double bed and breakfast brought to the door, you do not need any special wilderness skills to survive out there. It is a truly marvellous experience to wake up at dawn in the midst of Swedish nature!

2. Spot a moose
The further north you go in Sweden, the greater are the chances of seeing a moose – and in Småland the chances are quite good. But if you’re not lucky enough to spot one, you can always go to one of Småland’s moose parks. The park in Skullaryd is a lovely one with animals roaming freely on a large area.

3. Experience the Småland Archipelago
On Småland’s east coast, nestled around the town of Västervik, you’ll find the Västervik Archipelago, made up of more than 5000 small islands. One of them is Hasselö, which really is the ultimate Swedish dream: Red wooden houses, cliffs and beautiful scenery. There you can rent sea kayaks or bikes and explore on water or land – the island is car-free.

4. Discover Sweden’s new national park Åsnen
Sweden’s brand new national park Åsnen opened in May. Åsnen is a large lake area with over 1000 small islands. The area is rich in plant and wildlife. Moose and wild boars are often seen in the area, and the small islands are home to many birds, such as the osprey and white-tailed eagle. An obvious base for exploring Åsnen is Getnö Gård, which offers both cosy cabins for rent and a beautiful campsite in natural surroundings. From here you can go kayaking, bird watching by boat with a guide, or wander along the banks of Åsnen.

5. Rustle through the treetops at Little Rock Lake
A nature experience with action. If a walk in the forest doesn’t offer enough action for you, you can try ziplining through the treetops instead. Ziplining is a form of cable car, where you attach yourself to a wire up a high tower and fly through the treetops at up to 50 km per hour! Not for the faint hearted!
If a qiuet walk is more your thing, the area is also a beautiful place for a hike. Or you can just enjoy the phenomenal view from the suspension bridge.
