Southern Sweden and Blekinge’s archipelago is fantastic in the summer, and during spring and autumn it offers fishermen an abundance of fishing alternatives.
If you enjoy the Swedish nature then there are plenty of walking trails, bike trail, coastline and archipelago for you to discover here in Svalemåla. Rent one of our boats or a sea kayak and find your own island to explore in this lush archipelago of Blekinge, the southernmost archipelago in Sweden.
Blekingeleden, Blekinge’s network of walking trails, passes near Svalemåla. You can follow it to Karlshamn or Ronneby. Or follow our own Svalemåla trail (2+3km) following the marked path through grasslands, forest and along the rocky coastline towards either Gyön or Järnavik. This trail offers fantastic views over the archipelago and is a part of a network of connected coastal trails in a UNESCO biosphere reserv called ARK 56.
Want to get yourself around a little faster? Whether you’re walking or cycling you can discover the coastline at your leisure, and find your own secluded inlet or headland for swimming or sunbathing.
If your staying in one of Svalemåla’s holiday cottages you can enjoy our small sandy beach in Sandvik, a short walk from the holiday village through the grasslands. Relax in our wood-fired sauna with views over Järnavik’s archipelago and the sunset, and know you are only about 300 metres from your home.

A truly Swedish midsummer
Here in the countryside midsummer is one of our biggest festivals. Every year we celebrate it in traditional Swedish style with a midsummer pole, seven kinds of flowers, singing and dancing. With the scent of hay drifting across the beautiful summer meadows and views over the sea, this is the best time to experience southern Sweden, Blekinge and Svalemåla!
