We suggest to head to Småland. Småland is known for beautiful natural campsites next to beautiful lakes and offers many things to do and see. Most camping places in Småland are near a lake or forest. On a typical campsite, there are different types of accommodation, such as B&B rooms, cabins of different sizes, overnight tenting spots and long term motorhome parking spaces.

If you are feeling more adventurous, then rent a motorhome and travel around Sweden! Motorhome gives you the freedom to travel to anywhere and stay there. It is a mini house, so you can pick a spot to relax and admire the view.

The best part is, you can also use fresh wild ingredients to cook in your motorhome! Some people join a guided crayfish or fishing group and cook their catch minutes after catching it. They also pick wild mushrooms and berries to add to their crayfish or fish dish! It is wonderful and you will create so many unforgettable memories.
