Småland this weekend?
Visiting Småland this weekend? Let us suggest a couple of things to do!
Discover Gränna and Visingsö – by bike
Quaint Gränna, with its beautiful streets and sweet candy canes, is an idyllic place to visit with the whole family. A 20 minutes boatride from Gränna, on lake Vättern, you find Visingsö – a flat iland, perfect for riding a bike. If you don´t want to bring your own bike, you can rent one from one of the many rental companies on the iland.
