Lakeside walks

There are many fine walking trails in Markaryd and a very beautiful and popular one is the Sjörundorna trail that takes you round Lake Byasjön and Lake Lokasjön. It comprises four different walks, from one to six kilometres long, depending on the route chosen. The trails are equipped with information boards, barbecue sites and wind shelters.

Go fishing!

Moose safari

Smålandet is a popular tourist destination offering Markaryd’s very own moose safari. Along a three-kilometer-long winding forest road, visitors can experience close-up encounters with the king of the forest and even with American bison. It is possible to drive around the park in your own car but travelling by the destination’s own train is an experience in itself. Smålandet also has a souvenir shop, a café and a newly built restaurant.

Close to Markaryd there are a number of lakes offering excellent fishing opportunities. A fishing licence is required and can be purchased at the COOP in central Markaryd or at www.ifiske.se

The Traryds Skans Zoo

In the northern part of the Municipality of Markaryd lies Traryd. There is a zoo here where all different kinds of farm animals can be seen. You can also have a barbecue or walk round the small lake next to the park.

9 10 Herrgårdstoppen

Strömsnäbruk is where Lindvall’s sausages are manufactured and they are served both at IKEA and almost every roadside restaurant throughout the country. This is also where chocolate coconut balls and chocolate tops, so-called Herrgårdstoppar, are made. Production takes place at the Herrgårdstoppen factory, which also has a shop. Here you will find everything from loose sweets, soda drinks, ice-cream and snacks to gift items and souvenirs.

Teashop and country café

If you would like a coffee break and want to enjoy a typical Småland countryside atmosphere, then we can recommend Gräddhyllan Lantcafé and Stockhultgårdens Tebod. Gräddhyllan Lantcafé, with its fantastic selection of homemade fare, is located in an attractive setting close to the River Lagan with a view across Lake Tånnerydsdammen. Stockhultgårdens Tebod is beautifully situated in a forest clearing. Here, in a quaint little shop in the old farmhouse, you can choose from more than 160 types of tea, which can be enjoyed with one of their famous buns. If you want to stay overnight, there are bed & breakfast facilities.
