The municipality of Jönköping is located south of the lake
Vättern in the south of Sweden.
Jönköping, a town from the thirteenth century, makes the centre part of the region with the smaller town, Huskvarna, just to the east. Official site, http://www.jonkoping.se/
The hiking site presents my hiking hints for the countryside NE of Huskvarna. It is illustrated with my photographies, taken with emphasis to the hiking environments.
There are no detailed route guides so you need to know how to orientate using a map and a compass.
Rating 4 for wilderness, implies that you will feel alone, that few people have been around and - that a mooth can appear! And if you come across a calf, go away instantly - even if it is "so sweet". Else you risk beeing attacked by her mother.
The Right of Public Access implies in a swede's mind: You shall not
leave litter around, not cut wood or branches without permission or extreme
careness, not make fire on places other than well prepared for and - on no
conditions - during heat-periods in the summer time. Further, you shall not
walk near houses or make lots of noise in the woods, as this may frighten
animals, nor shall you land your canoe at bird-islands in the early summer
(prohibition signs) - you see, there are more shall-nots than rights.
And finally, don't ever believe that any travel ticket includes special rights
to behave otherwise!
So, let it be the swedes' way and you surely will feel welcome back again - here is a lot of free space - seeing you!
