The journey is more important than the destination, so the saying goes. That fits quite well around here. Explore the countryside. Time: 1-2 hours (excluding a stop for food and a swim).

Drive along Prästgårdsgatan on the way out of Vimmerby, follow the signs towards Djursdala. After about 8 km you will come to Kronbaden where you will be able to get a bite to eat or go for a swim.

Continue towards Djursdala. At the crossroads "Horn, Djursdala, Vimmerby", drive towards Djursdala. Soon you'll come to the sign "Ungstorp" on the right. A very nice track (long-distance footpath) starts here which is 7 km long and with many beautiful points from which there is a view. Here you'll also find a small gallery with art exhibitions during the summer.

Return to Djursdalavägen from Ungstorp. Turn right and continue towards Djursdala. You will soon arrive at Hembygdsgården, at Lindstorp's hillock, where the pasque flowers bloom in the spring. Continue through the undivided village, turn to the left up towards the old wooden church which has beautiful paintings on the walls and on the ceiling.

Continue down towards Lake Juttern and then back towards Södra Vi. Drive out of Södra Vi along Norra Storgatan. You will pass Vimmerby's largest company, Ljunghäll foundry. When you get to Road 23/34, cross it towards Loxbo. Continue through Loxbo until you reach Gullringen with a public swimming pool, Stigs Konditori (patisserie), swimming lake and short golf course.

Drive back to Vimmerby via Trunk Road 23/34. On the way you’ll soon pass the turning for Nils Holgersson’s World and Vaxboa in Käbbo. Vaxboa produces and sells wax candles. Satisfied with your trip, continue back to Vimmerby via Road 34.
