Book a holiday home in Oland for a taste of the great outdoors
With 300 kilometres of coastline, pristine beaches, 75 nature reserves and world heritage cultural landscapes Oland, the second largest island in Sweden, is a popular holiday destination. Holiday apartments, holiday rentals and holiday homes are in plentiful supply particularly in the vicinity of Böda Sand, a spectacular beach which is also the home of the mythic trolls' forest (Trollskogen).
Blessed by nature
Cyclists love Oland for its relatively easy routes along the coast which offer plenty of interesting sights. Bikes are easy to rent when you rent a holiday house, holiday home or holiday apartment in the region. The Boda Ecopark's barren sand dunes, towering pine forests and rolling meadowlands are hard to match. The rock formations on the windswept Byerum Beach were formed by natural erasion over thousands of years. At the northern tip of Oland there is a spectacular lighthouse known as Långe Erik and the Neptuni Angar Nature Reserve, while the southern edge of the island is home to a bird sanctuary called Ottenby Fågelstation. The Ölands Animal and Amusement Park that shelters 160 species of animal life is a must for families with kids.
The cultural aspects of Oland
Plundered by invaders and witness to never ending wars and plagues, Oland has been inhabited for approximately 7000 years and the earliest archaeological sites date back to 2500 BC. The ruins of the Borgholm Castle can be admired from afar and serve as a poignant reminder of the country's history. Culture buffs will be pleased to note that the southern agricultural landscape known as Alvaret is a UNESCO World Heritage site and the perfect place in which to discover rare species and evidence of human settlements from prehistoric times. The Vida Museum showcases work by Ulf Trotzig and Bertil and Ulrika Wallien, while the Eketorp Fortress is a reconstruction of an ancient fort .
