Öland's winter pearls
Are you a newly arrived winter tourist? Did you expect to encounter an almost deserted island? Although the pace is slower, Öland is far from deserted in winter. The business world is extremely active all year round and in the urban areas there are constant meetings in squares, cafés and in shops. The winter season includes a number of Christmas markets with a long tradition and, as always, the quality of Öland's handicrafts is high. Winter on Öland is a time for reflection and contemplation. Winter on Öland gives peace of mind. The leafless landscape opens up endless expanses. The sea roars and even in the middle of the island, you can feel the roaring masses of water at the Stenkusten. A walk across the Alvaret in brilliant winter sun after a roaring Fåk is a boost of energy for the soul.
