Just a short distance from Stufvenäs Country Hotel, the table is set in both a scenic and historic setting. With the sea in sight and one of Sweden's largest oak tree’s nearby, you’ll be accompanied by the seabirds’ song and the whisper of the reeds.

Eating in Swedish nature. Swedish forests are filled with edible treats such as berries, mushroom, nettles and other greens, and they are of course best enjoyed in the outdoors.

Småland

For nature lovers or royal family enthusiasts, you’ll find several oaks in this area that were planted in the 17th century, when the Swedish King, Gustaf II Adolf issued a gift letter to the crown tenant at Stufvenäs. The winds and waves have greatly contributed to the nature of the landscape and this is evident with the lagoons near the beach. For the hikers, follow old mail roads, railway tracks, rural roads and coastal bridge paths, all denoted with clear markers. Experience Kalmar by bike with a plethora of stops to appreciate the full cultural experience. Find out more about activities and local food experiences in Småland.
