Station Linné – a nature experience

Station Linné is a centre for research, popular science activities, culture and tourism related to sustainable development. We are situated on the Baltic island of Öland, in the southeast of Sweden. We also offer popular nature experiences, education, nature education and rental of workspaces.

In May, when the orchirds flower and the birds arrive on Öland, follow us on one of our orchid or bird tours.  Summertime is perfect to explore the flowerings meadows, look for butterflies or take a hike on the Alvar with one of our guides.

Kids will have a great time on our nature experience programme “Humlans Naturspanare” during the summer.

For a real out of the ordinary activity, be sure not to miss Mystery in the dark (Mystik i mörkret), an evening activity there we search for bats, moths and other nocturnal animals. We organise Mystik i mörkret several times between May and August.

These tours are in Swedish, but most guides can accommodate English speaking guests. Just call in advance! For groups we can organise  both special interests and general excursions.
