The Emigrants Path through Blekinge and Småland Nature Route

A peaceful and beautiful drive through the rural countryside of southern Sweden.

In addition to the scenic landscape, these areas offer a lot more in terms of culture and history than the routes situated further north.


The Kingdom of Crystal

The Emigrants' Path ends in Småland up by the famous Kingdom of Crystal, but you will find lots of opportunities to take a detour to the place like Kalmar or Växjö.

The name of the road comes from the huge Swedish emigration to the United States that took place in the late 19th century, when 1.3 million Swedes left their home in search of a better life. Many of them came from these areas of Sweden and the route tells their story with plenty of interesting stops along the road.
