In Norrköping there is great fishing, a lot of people take daytrips to Norrköping to fish for salmon or trout. You can also fish for pike, bass and other fish I don't know the english name for.
A permit is 50 crowns a day and youths under 18 fish for free. Every year 10.000 new trouts and salmons are inserted into the river to ensure a rich and living fish population.
Directions: The Motala Ström, the fishing club is located in Strömsparken

Ågelsjön is located in one of Sweden's most beautiful areas, Kolmården. There are over 200 routes with an average difficuly of grade 6. During the winter there are several places for Ice climbing.
Equipment: Of course climbing gear, there are nice places to put up tents and don't forget something to use when swimming.

Grabbhalvan, a 5 kilometer running competition (or trotting in most cases) for "real" men through the streets of Norrköping. It's an annual competition in may and has become an annual festival with many companies participating.
Everyone who finishes receives a survival kit with an inscribed beer glass and other essentials. My favourites are the ones running the entire race with a beer can in their hand =)
A special price is the "case-price", there's an empty case of beer after 3 kilometers, the person who brings it over the finish line get a special price.
Equipment: A real "grabbhalva" should wear a net shirt and 3 days stubble and preferable a beer belly.
Directions: Start and finish in the People's Park
