Hjo is a small picturesque Swedish town on the western shores of Sweden’s second largest lake, Lake Vättern. The town, which dates back to the early 1400s, is one of the only original Swedish “wooden cities” that remains largely intact, complete with cobbled streets on the town square. While historically operating primarily as a fishing village and later a spa town, it has now become a popular summer destination for those wishing to experience the slower, more idyllic ambiance of “old” Sweden.

Beautiful sunset over our campsite at Hätteboda Wilderness Campground in the Småland region of southern Sweden. For those of you who are looking for a more remote and wilderness-style camping experience in Sweden, this is the place to be! Mostly tent campers, no RVs allowed. Very primitive camping by european standards. Complete with a wood-oven powered sauna on the lake!
