The area constitutes a somewhat unusual sea landscape with thickly, wooded strands and forest meadows, as well as deciduous and evergreen forests in wonderful natural surroundings, rich in animal and birdlife. Getnö Gård is situated on a number of peninsulas with its own archipelago that offers an eldorado to visiting sport fishers. There is an abundance of pike and perch, as well as zander and eel. The lake is also rich in a number of interesting whitefish such as tench, bream and rudd, but it is also a special lake for rainbow trout and tough-to-catch carp.
Getnö Gård's sport fishing waters are privately owned and make up in total 1,000 hectares. The lake's abundance in plankton results in fast-growing fish and together with the lake's large areas of shallow water, fish production is very high.
