The island lies in the lake Åsnen. Åsnen is one of the largest and vast lakes in southern Sweden, with striking characteristics such as the many islands, the countless bays and the small beaches. Those special features give the lake a remarkable and varied appearance. It is unmistakably a unique and exceptional nature reserve with a rich and diverse flora and fauna. The area around Lake Åsnen is considered the southernmost wilderness in Sweden and it is a true paradise for anglers, outdoor sports enthusiasts, nature lovers and for people who appreciate peace, space and quiet. For the fishing enthusiasts: there is sufficient pike, perch, zander and eel in Åsnen. Within reach of Lake Åsnen one can enjoy an active and/or a relaxing holiday. The Åsnen National Park was officially opened in the year 2018, as a part of the Åsnen region.
