The Western Sweden Archipelago

By the West Coast Archipelago, you will find a wide selection of cosy fishing villages.

Gothenburg Archipelago & Islands

Don`t forget to pay the archipelago of Gothenburg a visit. Just outside the city, you will find charming villages, stunning nature and beaches. Seal safaris, sea fishing and boat excursions are just some of the activities available here.


Culinary highlights

Along the West Coast seaside, you will find excellent seafood restaurants in the small cosy fishing villages. In the seasons for oysters and lobsters, it is even possible to go on a lobster or oyster safari.


The special southern part

No cars are allowed in the southern part of the archipelago which makes this the perfect destination for long walks and bike rides.

You travel on the same ticket the whole way from the city, including the ferry from Saltholmen. The northern part of the archipelago is accessed by a car ferry from Lilla Varholmen at Hisingen and you can bring your car to most islands.

You can discover the world`s first Marine National Park by the name Kosterhavet on the west coast.
