Hiking Trails in Emmaboda
Hiking in Vilhelm Moberg's Emigrant District
The 110-km trail goes through three municipalities: Emmaboda, Lessebo and Tingsryd. Suitable starting points are at one of the youth hostels Ljuder, Moshult or Korrö. The monument of Vilhelm Moberg is at the spot where the famous writer's childhood home once stood, just north of Moshultamåla. An excellent trail map with guiding is available.
The trail is approx. 9 km and offers hiking in a historical setting in Lyckebyån's valley. Lyckebyån, which runs through three parishes, has played an important role in the area. The waterfalls were previously used for mills, forges and stamping mills. There are many sights along the trail.
The Muncipality's newest hiking trail follows the shoreline along Lake Grimmansmåla. With narrow footbridges and boardwalks you reach the legendary Rostockaholme. At the beginning of the 14th centurey, Nils Turesson (Bielke) once lived here. Nils was a knight and one of the country's most powerful men. Today, not much is left of his estate but the new information boards nevertheless give an impression of what it may have looked like.
Travelling by car: follow the signs to Rostockaholme in northern Lindås and park at the end of the isthmus. After a short walk of 600 metres you will have arrived at the remains of the estate. The trail continues north and around Lake Grimmansmåla. Total length: 5.5 km approx. This stretch of the trail requires a degree of experience. During the Autumn and Spring, you will need boots in the northern and north-eastern parts. Walkers and cyclists from Emmaboda can choose to join the trail at Rasslebygd (follow the signs).
