Blekinge: Meet the seals on the islands of Utklipan
Looking for an adventure? We have great advice for you! Take RIB boat from Karlskrona to Utklipan, the nearest Swedish monitoring station. Nature and views are amazing here. Dive into the water and swim with seals! The marine environment surrounding the unspoilt natural islands is very valuable in terms of marine biology. Many of the reefs around the archipelago are famous for well-developed wind and seaweed vegetation and an abundance of edible mussels. In summer, there is a youth hostel, a guest harbor and a café/restaurant.
Smoland: Fly over the centuries-old trees
Take the opportunity to look at nature and life from a different angle. There are plenty of adventure parks, but "Little Rock Lake" route will surprise everyone. The route is set in the wild nature, in the depths of the Smoland, 50 km north of Vaxjo. You won't see any houses around, just trees and lakes which you can view from the high. Enjoy a feeling of flying and dizziness at high altitude while traveling over old forests. It's the longest and the only track like this in Europe!
Scania: enjoy swimming in the lake between more than 200 islands
There are more than 200 small islands in Imelne, where you can set up a camp and bake your perch or bream. Imeln is famous for its rich flora and fauna, and many islets are special bird protection areas, so take binoculars and see rare species like an eagle fishman or a black-eyed diver. Imeln is a safe and accessible rowing area, where you can escape from the daily rush, but at the same time not being completely detached from the world - there is mobile connection in the majority of the territory. In the boat center you can rent everything from boats and military tents to portable cookers and barbecues.
Öland: Explore the island by bike
Traveling by bike to Öland should be time-consuming, but not because driving is tiring, but the opposite - on the good paths you just go through the landscape without much effort, leaving plenty of energy to enjoy the views. You will probably want to stop and admire many of the places you pass. In North Öland you will find attractions that combine nature, culture and history. In the restored Iron Age landscape, you will see how the ancient Ölandians lived. It houses an ancient long house like it could have been around 1,500 years ago, surrounded by fields, meadows, stone walls and sacrificial swamp.
