Little Rock Lake Zipline

Via eleven stations made up of towers, trees and cliff ledges, you swish along among the treetops. You soar over pools and ravines. At the highest point you are 32 metres in the air and reach a speed of 70 km an hour. When you pause at the stations, a guide tells you about nature in Kronoparken and Småland wildlife. Travel by zip line is quiet, increasing the odds of seeing elk and roe deer The zip line is suitable for everyone from ages 7 to 80. There are two courses with different degrees of difficulty. The family course is shorter and takes about an hour, while the entire course is 1,550 metres in length, making the adventure last twice as long.

Try glassblowing at Kosta Glass Centre

Kosta Glass Centre offers hands-on activities for old and young. You can choose to blow a sphere, a drinking glass or a bowl. You then can choose which colour you want the glass to be and whether or not it should have a pattern. When the choices have been made, it’s just a matter of getting started with the production. Together with a glassblower, you will manipulate the molten glass and watch how it takes shape. By the following day, your finished product will have had time to cool and be ready to pick up.
