Undenäs – Insider camping spot in southern Sweden

By on 8. Januar 2018

Not many travellers have Undenäs in Sweden on the map when it comes down to “places to visit in Europe”. But they should. In general Sweden is one of the most visited countries in Europe. Especially camping trips are on top of the list for a lot of travellers. The further north, the better your trip will be they say…

 

 

But that is not always the truth. There is this small province in southern Sweden called Undenäs with less than 300 citizens. It is definitely an insider tip. A small town surrounded by wonderful natural lakes and raw conifer forests. Every now and then you get lucky and see a wolf or a moose.

A landscape to fall in love with. That’s for sure…





Undenäs is perfect for a short wild camping trip and to get away from the hectic city life. Just you and suprisingly peaceful nature. What else could be better than that?

Undenäs – Most common questions

Where to stay in Undenäs?

You’ll find many different types of accommodation in Undenäs. You can either book a room in a hotel/ hostel or stay at a campground at the southern tip of the main lake called Unden, which is named after the area. Camping is the best option in my opinion. Preferably right next to the lake, just like me and a couple friends sometimes do on summer holidays.

When to go to Undenäs?

Undenäs is absolutely beautiful. Does not matter, if you visit it in summer or winter time. A camping trip is still more recommendable in summer time for obvious reasons. During winter you would hardly survive at night. Even in summer it gets pretty cold during night time. Make sure to pack warm clothes even, if that sound quite weird to say for a summer camping trip.

What a wonderful landscape near Undenäs

What to do in Undenäs?

There is a lot of different stuff to do in Undenäs. Tourists mainly come to go fishing and I highly recommend that too. The nearby lakes are crystal clear and the surrounding flora and fauna looks absolutely stunning. Besides that, it is really peaceful and you almost won’t meet any other people. These natural fresh water lakes are also perfect for a quick refreshing swim during daytime. Temperature rises up to 30+°C.

Just enjoy the enviroment in Undenäs

As a consequence thereof you will have fresh caught fish on the table for dinner every day. I promise, you never had fresher fish than that in your life!

Cooked potatoes with butter and salt on the side and the most delicious meal is ready to be eaten.





Furthermore the area is known for watersports. Canoeing, kajaking and Jet Ski driving are just a couple things to name.

Explore the area

Another main activity is to check out the surrounding area. I highly recommend to go on an exploration through the wild conifer forests. They just look so pretty and they are completely untouched. Make sure to remember the way when you make your way through the bushes. Otherwise you will have a tough time to find the way back. Other than that, just enjoy the hike. It’s beautiful. Especially the air is very nice, because it’s so fresh. Breathing gets taken to a whole different level.

What style to expect?

The southern swedish style is pretty much the same to the rest of the country. You will find a lot of wooden houses painted in all kind of colours, big properties, typical swedish flags hanging out of the windows and red/white checkered table cloth. A very nordic style you can easily fall in love with.

What to eat in Undenäs?

Food in Undenäs is no different than food in other swedish areas. It is actually very similar to most European countries. A place you should definitely check out is a small cafè near the local church. An old lady will serve you in great manner. The menu is very good and you will find some typical swedish deserts. Very delicious!

Why Undenäs?

Because it is a nice insider tip and it proves that there are still some places on earth, which are not completely overloaded by tourists. Places where you can go on a camping trip to with noone surrounding you but singing birds. Just you watching the flickering of the all night long ongoing campfire. Isn’t that reason enough?

Go to Undenäs for some quiet time

I am a german dude, who loves travelling and exciting adventures from bottom of his heart. I want to inspire other people to get out of their comfort zone and travel the world. Plus I really want to show how much you can learn from traveling and what kind of personal development as a human being comes along with it!

  • When finding the right pose for a picture seems a little to complicated 😂
.
When I went to the Philippines with @sndr.ebn , we put an island hopping tour around El Nido on top of the list of things to do ☝
.
And that was a great decision, because it was one the best things I ever did
.
We got recommended to do the El Nido island hopping tour A & C combination, because it is suppose to be the best
.
And it was. The tour absolutely blew my mind❗
.
Plus it taught me something valuable again, which is to always stay open minded, talk to people and follow there tips 👌
.
This is not only important for travelling, but also for life in general
.
Only if you stay open minded, you will talk to other people
.
Only if you talk to other people, you will get great tips
.
And getting tips from others is a great thing
.
Because these tips will help you improve yourself and sometimes lead to situations that create invaluable memories, which last forever ⏳
.
P.s. if you to make an amazing memory for your girl/ boyfriend that lasts forever, bring them to the lost islands near El Nido... 😉

  • How beautiful is this beach in New Zealand??? 😍
.
It's not just the fact that I had the chance to visit this amazing place in the south of New Zealand that makes me very grateful
.
It's also the lesson I got to learn from visiting it, which I am still very thankful for until this day 🙏
.
To travel through New Zealand nonstop without having to work was only possible, because I worked my ass off a couple months prior 👊
.
It led me to saving quite a big amount of money that I could use for travelling this wonderful country
.
So what was the lesson?
.
Pretty simple: hard work always pays off
.
Just keep pushing and you'll reach your goals. Sometimes you reach it quickly, sometimes it takes longer, but just keep moving step by step and you'll hit the target eventually 💪

  • It's impossible not love the castles of Copenhagen, right? 😍🏰
.
It was one of the main reasons why liked this city so much 👌
.
One beautiful castle after another. It almost felt like I am in a fairy tale... 😇😅
.
Already so looking forward to explore Marrakesh in Marocco in two weeks 🙌
.
Anyone having any tips on what to do and see??? .

  • There is something about visiting the most beautiful destinations like Maya Bay that is hard to describe 😄
.
For me it sometimes feels pretty surreal to stay at a place that is considered to be one of the best on the planet
.
I always have to pinch myself when this happens 😅
.
And then I think about all the people who don't have the privilege, the opportunity or the money do the same
.
It's always the same situation and it teaches me something very valuable time and time again
.
And that is BEING GRATEFUL !
.
Being grateful for what you have
.
Being grateful for where you come from
.
Being grateful for the opportunities you have
.
Being grateful for the dreams you can fullfill
.
Being grateful for who you are
.
And being grateful for the chances that you have in life 🙏
.
Because many many people don't have that and in my opinion it's an obligation to get the best out your life you possibly can, even if it's only for the reason alone that others can't ☝
.
So always try to chase your wildest dreams, just like I try to at the end of January in Marocco 😊
.
Anyone having any suggestions on what to do???

  • How great is the coastline of Dalmatia in Croatia ??? 😍😊
.
Driving down this wonderful part of a very unique country taught me something quite valuable ☝
.
For me, this landscape was so beautiful that I could not resist to stop at almost every parking bay to take photographs
.
I made picture after picture after picture
.
It took a looong time
.
Finally I got some great once that I can put on my wall, in my books and on my website
.
So what did that teach me now?
.
It taught me that you need to be patient in everything that you do and which is of importance to you ⏳
.
GREAT things need time❗
.
You don't move forward in any area of life, if you switch from one thing to another all the time
.
Choose something, work on it and stick to it
.
Eventually something brilliant will be the outcome
. 
Just like this picture is to me... 😊

  • Roy's Peak is definitely one of the greatest spots I have ever been at... 🌏
.
For me, it's also one of the best examples of how many beautiful places are out there, ready to be explored
.
In my relatively short life I have already seen quite a bit of cool destinations 🌐
.
There are some people out there who have seen more (sometimes way more) than I did. But, compared to many other people, I have already seen a fair bit
.
I am NOT saying this to show off!
.
I am saying it, because I want to adress a point ☝
.
To see as much of our beautiful planet as I can, learning about other cultures, getting to know other people, etc. etc. etc... is all one big point on my list of goals in life
.
And I slowly recognize more and more, that the more I strictly keep following these goals and dreams, the more of them I achieve
.
I do, just like most of us, only make small baby steps all the time, but the achievements come eventually ⏳
.
This is why I set some personal goals again this year - travelwise and in personal life - and I hope to inspire others to do the same
.
Off to great 2018... 💪

  • View onto Hamburg's harbour on a lovely day from a "secret" spot 😁
.
There is no other city in my home country that can come up with so many great views
.
Maybe not even any other city in any other country in Europe, even though that would be quite hard to claim
.
Still views like this are one of countless reasons why I love my hometown so much!
.
TELL ME: What is the best thing about your home town??? 😃

  • 2017 is almost over❗
.
It has been a year full of exciting adventures and awesome experiences 🙌
.
But it has also been a year full of ups and downs ⬆⬇
.
Still I learned A LOT, both trough travelling and from my private life
.
I am very thankful for that and especially for all the support I got throughout this year 🙏😘
.
It has been great 💯
.
This picture shows one of the golden moments I'll probably never forget from 2017 - visiting 2.000 year old rice terraces in Batad, Philippines 😍
.
I am already sooo looking forward to all the adventures and adversities ahead in 2018, because .
You can only learn from them
.
They will some day be wonderful memories .
And you ultimately become a better version of yourself
.
For me, the new year has a lot of amazing destinations in store: Marocco, Bavaria, Austria, Italy, Warsaw and hopefully a lot more 😄
.
I wish EVERYONE a healthy start into the New Year and may all your goals and dreams become reality... 💪
.
P.s. don't party to hard tonight 😉
