Welcome to Penåsa, a unique, and diverse wellbeing place, located inside the world heritage site, the Great Alvar. With its unique flora and fauna, the wellbeing place, and its adjoining nature reserves Lilla Dalby & Bjärby offer your great opportunities to walk in the footsteps of the local history and to discover both natural, and cultural-historical remains. Whether you choose to engage your body in movement and still your curiosities, or are in search of peace, tranquillity, and relaxation, Penåsa is a great place to start your wellbeing journey. Here you can truly rest and recover.

At Penåsa, nature and the fresh air invite you to find balance and harmony. Marvel at the extraordinary, changing environment around the wellbeing site. Here, each season is special, the scenery lives in constant change and offers you unique impressions and experiences all year round. The trails around Penåsa are marked and will guide you through pines and groves on soft green animal paths as well as over the characteristic, barren limestone plains. Further along, a gravel road stretches from the eastern to the western side of the great Alvar, along an old railway embankment. In the summer, the place is full of life, framed in a sea of flowers with buzzing insects, butterflies, and lovely birdsong.

Further in the area, you will find a cosy resting area with windbreaks, and fireplaces, and a simple dry toilet. You are welcome to spend the night outdoors, in the windbreaks, or in your own tent. The right of public access allows you to camp for one night. Remember to buy local delicacies, breakfast, and other, fantastic local produce at the farm shops along your way to Penåsa for your overnight stay!

Good to know: The gravel road towards the resting place, and its picnic tables, are partly made accessible and can be reached with walkers, wheelchairs, and strollers.
