About Blekinge

Spend your free days in Blekinge and be born again. Embark on the unexplored and beautifully diverse nature. Discover the glittering lakes, archipelago and white sandy beaches. Get to know the cultural heritage that has now changed the entire history of Sweden. Just a few years ago, a shipwreck was salvaged, a gold treasure was excavated, and now the stories from the past are adjusted.



The landscape

Blekinge's coastal strip offers a classic Swedish summer life. Here you can stay next to the sea, enjoy lovely baths, nice days on the beach, good food and pleasant evening life. Blekinge is Sweden's smallest landscape on the mainland with about 160,000 inhabitants, yet there are 3 different parts with everything from the archipelago to wilderness. The northern part has mostly woods and stones which makes the soil difficult to cultivate. The middle part has a lush deciduous forest and many lakes. The southern part has a warm winter climate which makes deciduous trees such as beech, chestnut, walnut and fruit trees feel good.
