The further south out on Öland you travel, the more wonderful the expanses become. Stop and be impressed by the southern cape, where land meets endless sea. From the edge of the castle that runs along the island, you have a wonderful view of Kalmarsund. The barren nature, which is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, is an interesting starting point for extensive walks. On the contrary, are it rustling pine tops and moss-covered tufts that attract you? The Böda forest in the north fascinates many and here hiking trails coexist with old tractor roads. The vast Böda bay with chalk-white sand and turquoise shimmering sea is beautiful as it suggests.

the world heritage southern island

The world-unique cultural heritage of Södra Öland's agricultural landscape was designated a world heritage site in 2000 by UNESCO. Lake lands, alvar lands, farmland and the row villages in southern Öland constitute the world heritage. Together, they bear witness to how the land has been used in the same way by man and animal in symbiosis for millennia. This heritage is unique in the world and worth both experiencing and preserving for future generations.
