Living an active life
Discover nature, the lakes and the old cultural landscape. Enjoy a
round of golf or climb a mountain. Try cross-country skiing or snowboarding.
Bathe, fish or go for a jog in one of our many open-air recreation
areas. It’s always easy in Skaraborg to have purposeful leisure
time, also on weekdays, not least thanks to the Swedish right to access
When you don’t fancy being active yourself, there are plenty
of opportunities to watch sport at all levels. There’s first-class
handball, bandy, volleyball and speedway, not to mention a host of
associations such as figure skating, football, ice hockey, athletics
and martial arts.
There are also plenty of cinemas, theatres, art galleries, museums
and concert halls. On the whole, Skaraborg offers a diverse range
of entertainment and culture, whether you prefer to be a spectator
or take part yourself.
Another aspect of leisure is, of course, restaurants, bars and cafés.
On his or her day off a Skaraborger may go shopping, linger over a
latte in a café and then round off the day at the theatre or
cinema. Or perhaps he or she may decide to go on a voyage of discovery
in history, for example, among the Stone Age relics or the many traces
from the early Middle Ages.
