Are you looking forward to adventure and excitement? On Öland you can do anything from wreck diving, mountain biking, wave surfing, horse riding across the Great Alvar or wind surfing, to playing tennis or padel tennis, swimming, playing golf or rock climbing in a stone quarry. Do you want to try something new? Öland offers camel riding, pottery courses, yoga retreats and handmade sweets. Do you want some time to enjoy life?

Whatever you choose, we guarantee that you will cherish your Öland memories for life.
