Welcome to Östergötland
In south-east Sweden, less than 200 kilometres south of Stockholm, a pleasant surprise awaits you – the beautiful countryside of Östergötland. Our province is packed with opportunities for a wonderful and active holiday: stay in fantastic nature, enjoy the silence and collect unforgettable holiday memories to take home. Paddle a kayak in an unspoilt archipelago, hike along marked trails or cycle along winding roads with a map and picnic in the rucksack.
