Apart from our beautiful nature, with our woods and the lake, there are great routes for jogging or cycling. The former railway line follows the coast of Lake Åsnen and it is possible to hire bikes to cycle around the entire lake.
On site boats and/or canoes can be hired (subject to availability) for those wishing to fish or simply enjoy the fantastic islands on Lake Åsnen.
If you need to buy food etc. the closest shops are in Torne (9km) and Lönashult (8km).
Just one kilometer away from our guesthouse you will find Trollberget, a place where you can wander around in a beautiful beech forest and read about the sagas that are linked to the area. This is where the Nature Conservation Agency plans to gather all the information about the National Park, as this is likely to be one of two official entrances to the park.
About 800 meters from the house is a small lake with a rich fauna to experience.
Round the Åsnen
Around Lake Åsnen there is a bicycle route. About half of the 140-km route is completely free from motorized traffic and is based on a former railway line. A map can be bought in the tourist offices in the nearby towns of Växjö, Alvesta and Tingsryd.
20 kilometers away you will find Huseby bruk, a farmstead in a cultural environment that is by Åsnen’s northwestern point.
40 kilometers away is Växjö, the largest town in the region. Here you will find the full extent of what a town can offer in terms of shopping, restaurants, arts and entertainment.
50 kilometers away is Älmhult, the place where Ingvar Kamprad founded Sweden’s international furniture giant IKEA. Here you will find one of the concern’s newest stores as well as the very first.
90 kilometers away is Kosta, the world-famous glassworks. Here you can learn more about the history of glass, visit the glass hotel and perhaps even shop in the large Outlet.
