Utklippan - a beautiful small island, the one farthest out in the achipelago. It's very small with a small lighthouse on it, and some yellow cottages where the person that looked after the lighthouse lived earlier. When I was there, there were also a lot of unusually tame seabirds flying around all the time, and you can swim in the usually pretty cold water almost anywhere on the island. It's known for one very rare kind of frog that lives there and another also very rare kind of little plant.
To get there you have to go in a private boat, though summertime it happens pretty often that sailorships which visit the city's harbour arrange daytrips to the island. The tourist office at the square (Stortorget) knows about that. Recently I heard that this summer there will be arranged regular trips twice a week to this island.
Aspo in a small island in the Karlskrona area and you can get there on the free ferry which runs several times a day. Some people take their cars or bikes over but you can also go as a foot passenger. There ferry takes about 20 mins to get there and once on the island, you can explore the old fort or just go for a quiet walk.
One word of warning, if you take the car, don't plan on taking the last ferry back as you can't book your place and if there is no room, you will have to leave your car there and get it in the morning.
Ferries generally run every hour but check the board at the dock for current times.

Most people don´t get the chance to go sailing, but we had luck, since one of the guys in the class had a sailing boat (or his parents had) and they took us for a ride.
It was really a lot of fun...

At the Northern shores of Sweden's largest lake, the Vänern, there is a strange statue. It looks like a huge Totem-pole and one whispers it is a real Picasso (which is doubtful, but might be true).
The nature is SOOOOO beautiful. I just love the sea...
