Little Rock Zipline
At Little Rock Lake in Klavreström, the whole family can find their thrills on Europe’s longest zipline course. ‘Zipping’ means whizzing between the trees and towers as you dangle in a harness attached to a strong wire. The courses range in difficulty, from family-friendly green courses to more adrenaline-inducing ziplines that let you reach speeds of up to 75km/h! Kids (aged 5+) under 35kg can zip in tandem with a guide, while all others are welcome to zip alone. There’s something for everyone in the heart of Småland’s forest! Are you up for it?
Hasselö is a living idyll in Tjust Archipelago outside Västervik, with many activities and destinations to discover.

To get to the island, take an archipelago boat from Västervik or Gränsö Canal.
Here adventures await on the ground and eight metres up in the air. A high ropes course stretches above the ground for those who like heights. For those who prefer to be on the ground, there is paintball, multidisciplinary events and shooting. The facility also has an adventure park with zip lines.
