Store Mosse National Park is located in three Småland municipalities: Värnamo, Gnosjö and Vaggeryd. Both our hostels are located inside the national park. Svänö is located in the northern part and the other (Lövö) in the southern part. This is how you get to Svänö.

If you come by car, bicycle or motorbike

To Svänö you can drive almost all the way to the house. From road 152 take the exit at Uppebo, pass Stråkeved, then turn towards Häradsö and keep to the right when the road splits towards S .Svänö. The last bit is a narrow gravel road out over the bog.

Park in the designated parking lot, which is to the right of the first gate, 200 meters before the house. Resident guests may drive up to the gate to unload packing, but then need to park the car in designated parking.

Do you use public transport (bus/train)?

There are good opportunities to travel to us by public transport, for example by train. Suitable stations for getting off are Värnamo or Gnosjö for further travel by bus.
