Here you can follow our mascot Morris and learn more about beach meadows, dragonflies, life below the water surface in Grankullaviken, oaks, pines and about the Baltic Sea.
The Trollskogen nature reserve is situated at the tip of Öland’s northeastern cape. Here, you will find various hiking trails, where you can hike along the coast of the Baltic Sea or along the meadows of the Grankullaviken bay.
Out in the nature reserve, you can enjoy windswept pines or “the enchanted oak” Trolleken, which is Öland’s oldest oak. You may even catch a glimpse of a coal tit perched atop a spruce tree. Visit the wreck of the Swiks on the beach and imagine what a snowstorm would be like.
