Park overnight at an outdoor resort
A nature and outdoor break from the city
Swedish families like to organise a city break in the countryside surrounded by nature. An important break allowing for quality time with friends and family
A break in nature for bonding and strengthening relationships
Swedes believe that being out in nature is extremely important for our well -being and development. Nature allows for fun activities and contemplation at the same time. Similarly, the trees, sounds and smells foster creativity and imagination in both adults and children. Many parents today want to recreate the natural playgrounds of their own childhood . A holiday on the Swedish countryside, with empty fields, lakes and vast forests, makes it possible for the family bond and socialise.
A typical Swedish family holiday also includes meeting up friends, relatives and siblings living in other regions and towns.

Rent a motorhome, everything you need for a comfortable City Break vacation!
Eva from Daylight Motorhomes went on a city break trip to Ödevata and here is her story:
Enjoying our countryside adventures
Ödevata is a great place for children. Just around the corner you have lakes, forests, fields and great hiking trails. The children really enjoyed the farm animals, the sauna ramps and the teepee tent. As for myself, I spent some time to learn more about the many horticulture projects. I especially enjoyed tending plants in the “Aquaponics” greenhouse. Such as great place to hang out.
We did some family fun activities and my son and his friends played fottball on the camping site field accompanied by the sheep.
The “no-waste and sustainability philosophy” of the owners Malin and Magnus is all around. I felt blessed to have biodiversity at my fingertips. Just what I needed and very relaxing .
Farm life and healthy outdoor cooking
We cooked our own food, with vegetables picked from the garden. I went to the farms root cellar to fetch locally produced potatoes, carrots and turnips. Fetching the eggs from the hen house was something new for all of us.
The outdoor cooking was amazing. The kids helped to drag the outdoor cooking kitchen to a strategic position and with the help of Malin, we started a fire with the wood we had chopped the previous day. She lent us pots, buckets, knives and peelers. We all had to help out. We had a great family feeling.
The cleaning up afterwards turned into a no waste lesson. We learned which of the peels we should recycle to feed the pigs. The rest was carried away and into the farm ́s compost.

Active outdoors, cycling, hiking, fishing and water fun
Cycling and hiking are popular outdoor activities in Sweden. You can find Swedes from all generations on their bikes or hiking with their families in the forests. In and around Ödevata you have safe, and at the same time challenging, bike trails and routes. Malin told us about her collaboration with heritage sites and glass works. For our next visit to Ödevata we can rent bikes and head on the 10 km long bike trails from Ödevata to the village Målerås.
Sauna and canoeing
We truly enjoyed the floating sauna on the lake. It is a Swedish outdoor wood burning sauna. Taking a Sauna is such an inherent part of the Swedish Heritage. Magnus showed us how to make a fire and how to navigate the sauna ramp out in the lake. Furthermore, jumping into the freezing lake was great for creating their presence of mind.
Canoeing as a group is good fun. We ended up having a synchronized row by tying up the canoes and going around the lakes and canals as a single long line of canoes.
Ödevata is a family and child friendly place. The owners, Malin and Magnus, are amazing people who want to share their passion and knowledge with others. They inspired us to learn more about horticulture, farm life, fishing and outdoor cooking. We learned a lot from Ödevata´s no waste and sustainable outdoor philosophy.
Sporting events for the whole family
There are also several sports events on offer:
The well-known bicycle race Vätternrundan takes you around the Lake Vättern on your bike- a full 300 km of racing in the month of June. All our motor homes have bicycle racks.
