Sweden knows 'Allemansrätten': Right of Public Access. Everyone is allowed to make use of landed, public and private property, under the condition that nature is respected. The footpaths go criss-cross through forests and meadows: A true paradise for fervent walkers! You can stroll around and enjoy space; the extensive, rough nature is, however, extremely suitable for tough hikes, which requires good equipment!
Hiking paths have been plotted on several spots in the surrounding area, for example on the adventure island Hasselö. For more information, please check the website from Västerviks tourist information.
