You can travel to Öland by bridge from Kalmar on the Swedish mainland. The best places to look for fossils are located at the coastline. At the northern part of the west coast there are cliffs with many quarries. Here the best fossil locations are located (i.e. near Äleklinta). You can also look in Byrum.
In the south of Öland near Grönhögen shale from the Cambrium period is exposed. Here you can find many trilobites Agnostus. On the beach near Grönhögen you can find black pieces of shale with graptolites.Drag the map and zoom in or out for the best view of this locality.
