Östra Göinge is often described as "the green heart of Skåne.” The northeast is undiscovered, small-scale, and home to the wild forests of Skåne. The northeast is also where Snapphanes wreaked havoc here 400 years ago, but these days it is a place to swim and fish in either lake or sea, and Wanås is located there in the middle of an ethereal beech wood forest. There are many lovely restaurants and places to stay in the beautiful area surrounding Wanås, which is only two hours from Malmö. You will find a more complete list in this brochure and see our tips for accommodation below.

Pappersbruket in Östanå – a former paper mill, which is now a hotel, restaurant, and cultural site – is just twelve minutes from Wanås. Conceptually the food can be described as being cooked in "a refined farmer's kitchen." Our chef uses organic and local ingredients, and the food is made with love. Sleep in bright rooms on comfortable beds in Scandinavia's largest timber-framed building – a renovated treasure from 1861. At Pappersbruket you'll find a mixture of nature, culture, and industry. You can combine your stay with a variety of activities. Read more about Pappersbruket and "Sommarakademin" (the Summer Academy) at

Vanga 77.1 is located in the middle of Sweden's apple country. Here there are plenty of possibilities for enjoying yourself. In the loft there are five modern and fresh double rooms with great views of Ivö lake. Extra beds can be added in two of these rooms. Breakfast is served on the veranda, where you can watch the sun rise over Bjäret. You can spend the night in the hammock, falling asleep to the owls hooting and waking up with the sun. You can choose to be in the apple orchard, in the forest among the trees, or down by the lake. Read more about Vanga 77.1
