Known as the second-largest Swedish island, the unique nature and mild landscape makes Öland a perfect holiday destination. For generations, many Swedes visit here during the Summer for hiking trails and leisurely strolls along the sandy beaches.

Meanwhile, for new travellers, you may start from the historical town of Sweden, Borgholm known for its ancient ringforts and buildings from the early 1800s. Walk around the beautiful gardens and head to the furthest south to the Ottenby Bird Observatory, a paradise for birdwatchers since opening in 1946 and home to 140 species. Give yourself plenty of time to savour some local delights to complete your island experience.
