The Weather Islands

Go here for the sun, sea and smooth rocky cliff walks. Go for a fabulous seafood lunch or dinner at the old pilothouse, now a ‘Taste of Sweden’ accredited restaurant. Head for the Weather Islands – Sweden’s most westerly and wonderfully named islands.

The Weather Islands are only a 30-minute boat trip from Fjällbacka harbour or Hamburgsund. The trip to the islands is worth it on its own, as the captain skillfully negotiates the channels and contours of the Fjällbacka archipelago.

The Weather Islands

The Weather Islands is a cluster of several hundred mostly rocky, barren islands in the far reaches of the Fjällbacka archipelago. And known as the sunniest, windiest and most westerly islands of Sweden. So when you return to the mainland, your hair might be a mess, but never fear, you'll have that 'windswept and exotic' west coast look. Which is all that matters.

So, why should you come here?

These islands are the nirvana of rocky solitude. Go for a walk, scout your perfect spot and while away the hours doing perfectly zilch. Or peer seawards and see some seals' heads bobbing in the distance. Or why not join them for a swim? The waters here are clean, blue, brisk and brilliant. That done, how about lunch?

 

Väderöarnas Restaurant and Guesthouse serves up fab seafood lunches and dinners; crab and crayfish are a mainstay and lobster and oysters make a star appearance from September though December. Other activities here include hot-tubbing, basting yourself in a bastu, or sauna or otherwise enjoying the stunning sea views (what else). Accommodation at Väderöarnas restaurant and guesthouse is basic and comfortable and should be booked well in advance, as there are just 11 rooms. You can book a boat trip/accommodation package here.

 

Other stuff you can do on the Weather Islands includes birdwatching, fishing and diving. All boat trips, activities and a stay at the island’s only guesthouse must be booked in advance in Fjällbacka.
