Discover Småland

5000 lakes and 270 km of coast

Welcome to Småland

Whether you know a lot about Småland or come without expectations, we would love to help you make the most of your visit. We are not trying to tell you how to enjoy Småland, feel free, but these are some of the things we would love to show you. Some are well known and easy to find, others are located along modest country roads, and some of the best things are all over, like the forests and lakes, the red cottages and the stone walls.

We hope you’ll enjoy your stay. Welcome!

Due to the warm weather and lack of rain, the Swedish fire-and-rescue service issued a ban on lighting fires in Småland. The ban applies to barbecuing on one’s own property or at specially constructed barbecue grills too.

Nature for real

Småland is Europe's southernmost wilderness. Looking for silence, space and nature? This is the place! Explore our nature with or without guides, but always with plenty of space and genuine Swedish landscape. So what do you prefer - hiking, biking or perhaps fishing or ziplining? It's all here.

Hot design

Småland is a region of design. Did you know that this is where IKEA first started? The very first store now holds the world's only IKEA Museum. Also, don't miss The Kingdom of Crystal. See the artists form the glowing, melted glass mass into pieces of art. Every glassworks has their own style, and of course you can visit the glass shops to buy some unique pieces.
