Sommarens roadtrip i Blekinge

Summer roadtrip in Blekinge

Nothing is as summery as gliding in the cultural landscape, feeling the wind in the hair and smelling the fresh summer flower meadows. Regardless of whether you drive a cab, a car with an open car window, a motorcycle or a regular pedal bike. It is now Sweden smells the best!
Blekinge doftar gott
Amazing nature experiences by car, motorcycle, on foot or by bike.
Blekinge is full of beautiful small country roads that wander through the landscape. Plan a route on the map, why not use the newly developed application ARK56 that you can download in your smartphone and orient yourself digitally in Blekinge's landscape or go around completely aimlessly and see where you end up. Blekinge is not very big, and it is difficult to get lost. Here it is rather close to everything, and even if you go entirely wrong, it is rarely far back. Between the sea and deep forests, it is only a few miles.
Med husbil genom Blekinge
Blekinge is ideally suited for lovely walks with house cars. Overnight at a campsite, on a parking lot or in the middle of the forest. Freedom when it is at its best.
Flowering meadows. As agriculture, the small-scale cultivation landscape disappears, not least at the generational shifts, where younger farmers rarely accept long working days 365 days a year. In Blekinge, we are still fortunate to have many smaller farms where the fields and pastures are still grazed by cows, sheep and horses. Without the latter, a large part of Sweden would probably grow again. Go to Torhamnslandet in the east, to Almö outside Ronneby, to Ire outside Karlshamn, Halen's western edge in Olofström or to Ynde town in Sölvesborg if you want to experience Blekinge's cultural landscape. Contemporary roadsides are otherwise a new type of meadow land with a variety of flowers in all its forms. Artful, beautiful side areas are marked with "Artrik Vägkant" in many places in Blekinge.
Anecdote: The road edges are not a small area. In total, Sweden's roadsides cover an area as large as Öland, where suppressed species thrive in the lean soil.

Mobile house in Blekinge. Camping is somehow synonymous with Blekinge. Experience the city-centred camping life in Karlskrona or Karlshamn or check in on quiet campsites by the sea where you can park your camper, caravan or tent even down the shore. Just in Blekinge, most campgrounds located by the sea, where you can combine proximity, city, forest and beach in one place. Do not miss the fantastic Ronneby Sea camping right south of Listerby where the sea embraces the heart of the camp.

Sea camping on Ronneby sea camping
- Ronneby Havscamping is one of two favourites in Blekinge. We like the lovely location, the silence and, not least, the freedom to park the caravan down by the sea," says Charlotta Klem from Karlshamn who, together with her husband Pertti, switches between Ronneby Havscamping and Tredenborgs camping in Sölvesborg. Definitely, Blekinge's best campsites, make her husband Pertii in.

Eat on the beach. Apart from several seaside restaurants, cooking on the beach is a favourite in Blekinge. Bring the grill down to the beach or cook at one of the municipality's public barbecue areas. It is just as good to pick up prepared food, from your kitchen or bought and enjoy dinner tastes by the sea or in the middle of the forest. The advantage of eating on the beach or at a lake in the woods is that even the everyday evenings can be experienced as a holiday. Ideally, with bath and lovely sun glitter in the water. Don't miss the taverns Wägga Fisk & Delikatess as well as Restaurant & Wine in Karlshamn, Sjörök in Karlskrona and Schweizer et on Karön in Ronneby, all with lovely sea views.

Evening walks by the sea. Kick off your shoes and walk a barefoot walk on the sandy beach, follow the coves in central Karlskrona and round Dragsö and Saltö on the way back to town or it is tranquil and glances straight out into nature. Nothing is as healing as nature itself, the scents, the sounds (or perhaps the lack of noice) and the stillness of the water.

Amazing beach baths. Some love sand between the toes while others detest it. In Blekinge you can get both and enjoy the lovely rocky baths in Karlshamn and Karlskrona, excellent beaches in Sölvesborg - don't miss Sandviken and Hällevik's shores - and beautiful lake baths in Olofström.

Lovely bath in Sandviken.
Loved dogs and the magic of the water. Tell the dog that doesn't like water. Yes, there are, of course, a whole lot of dogs that hate to dip their paws in the water and even less voluntarily jump in. But for those dogs who like water, the proximity of the sea is a never-ending resource for both exercise and joy. Find out special dog baths; indeed there are actually some such marked places in Blekinge, for example below Hälleviksbadet and in Tredenborg in Sölvesborg and at Blåsvik at Halen in Olofström. Since dogs generally do not have to swim on public beaches in high season, it is essential that you show consideration and seek yourself alongside the beaches and let the dog bathe where it disturbs as little as possible.

Try Bodyboard or SUP (Stand up paddle board) at Blekinge's beaches.


SUP, kayak and boating. Not enjoying the water's proximity is a shame when travelling in Blekinge. Jump aboard any of Blekingetrafiken's boats and enjoy the opportunities of the runaway or rent a kayak and head straight out into the sea band. If you haven't tried SUP (stand up paddle board) before, the balancing exercise is a favourite. You can now rent SUP at several places in the county, such as the canoe centre in Olofström, Karlskrona kayak, Verkö kayak and at many campsites. The balancing exercise is, and if you can't stand up on the board, it is helpful to paddle on your knees. Nowadays, there are also several players who offer SUP-yoga, yoga exercises on a SUP board, where balance and control are in focus. For example, Pensionat Järnavik between Karlshamn and Ronneby.

Amazing nature experiences by car, motorcycle, on foot or by bike.

No matter in which way you take you through Blekinge, the proximity is striking. From one end of the landscape to the other, it is just over ten miles, from north to south just under half. Combine the urban life's pulse with rural tranquillity. Bicycle crossing, walking in the long run or crossing the road through Blekinge. Anyone who does not own his own convertible can at least roll down the car windows and go airy through Blekinge with the hair on end. It is now the summer is at its best.
