Quote from Örebro County Botanical Society written Veronikan nr3 / 2010 "The hostel had a strategically position us botanists. Just a few hundred meters from the camp is wonderfully rich orchid meadows and beautiful pastures. It was not a reserve which surprised us. Here we absolutely reveled in orchids, amounts of John Keys, tons of gun powder burners, very fly orchid and still not beaten the Spurs bride. Avocets out in groundwater was to the delight of those interested in birds - and they were probably most of us."
Birding is fantastic with, inter alia, nesting sea eagles and many waders, gulls and ducks. The nightingale is often heard. Many birdwatchers return every year and tells the lyrical about all the birds they have seen and heard. Spotting scopes and binoculars frequently lent free.
Öland perceived otherwise, best by bicycle. Both Ölandsleden and Sweden trail passes the farm on the old road and you can easily visit both the western and eastern shore the same day as the island is narrowest in the north.
On the east side there is the elongated fine sandy beaches and on the west side rocky beaches, you can enjoy a late picnic in the beautiful sunset. Since Öland has a vibrant agricultural landscape can picnic consisting of local products; goat cheese, potato dumplings, sausage, strawberries, vegetables and good bread from the local bakery.
