Gamla Riksettan - R1 (Touristroad)

Show map

This historic road winds through southern Sweden from Byarum in Småland to Örkelljunga in Skåne. Wherever you stop along the way, you can find something to do!

Riksettan is the old E4 and going parallel with the current E4. So if you are tired of going on the highway and want to see something else this way is perfect! Drive off the E4 and stop for a coffee at Byarums Homestead (open in summer!), take a dip (if the weather permitts) at Hjortsjön (a lake) in Vaggeryd, visit museum Miliseum and the military area in Skillingaryd and stay for dinner at Rasta in Klevshult. If the energy then is out there is the opportunity to sleep in a comfortable bed at Hotel Småland in Klevshult.
