Winter Special in the Summer House in Sweden

In the wintertime we invite you to go out and cut your own Christmas tree in the woods around our summerhouse. If you wish, we can even arrange a meeting with Santa Claus in the woods. It is an unforgettable experience for the whole family. Ice-skating on the lake is also very pleasant as you can see in our Photo Gallery

In the pristine nature surrounding our summer house there is a lot to discover:

Hiking around our Summerhouse in Sweden

You can discover the surrounding hills and woods around our blue summerhouse in Sweden on various hiking adventures through paths in the woods. You can also collect many mushrooms and berries such as the Lingonberry which has a special meaning here in Småland.

Biking around our Summerhouse in Sweden

Go on a small bike ride to the old mill, a special place for the surrounding villages hidden in the forest. Or, take a longer bike ride to Gränna and with a short ferry ride you will be on Visingsö, an island in the middle of Lake Vättern. There you can follow the historical footsteps of Sweden by visiting the ruins of the first Swedish castle ever built. We also recommend you to visit one of the many Elk Parks in Småland. More information about the different Elk Parks can be found in the summerhouse.

Fishing Vacation in Sweden

Take the summerhouse boat and go fishing on Lake Lången, a 30 second walk from the cottage. If you don't want to work up a sweat by rowing, we offer you the possibility to rent a small electric boat engine. Compared to a petrol engine this is more environmentally friendly and preserves our clean water.

If you have any questions about fishing you can always ask us or check out our professional fishing page for experienced anglers. In Lake Lången, in front of our summerhouse in Sweden you can mainly fish for Pike and Perch. There are more adventures awaiting you in the many lakes in the surrounding area. There you can fish for other fish species like Pikeperch (Zander / Walleye). There have been catches of big Pikeperch with up to 12,5 kilos! Lake Vättern, the fifth biggest lake in Europe, is only 25 km away from our summerhouse in Sweden. The cold and crystal clear water of Lake Vättern offers an ideal condition for Salmon, Trout, and especially Char.

You will find more information about fishing in Sweden on our special fishing website
