As much as 80 per cent of the municipality consists of forests, and it also has 231 lakes of more than 1 ha in size. It is a municipality "made for" nature experiences, and, as well as forests and real wilderness, there are many nature reserves to visit.

There are nature and fishing guides ready to share their knowledge of the nature, flowers, birds and fishing. Another option for a nature experience is to discover the forest, mystique and nature on horseback or bike. In the summer, you could end the day with a dip in a nice lake. In Åseda, you can cycle an inspection trolley on the narrow gauge railway.
