With its varied landscape, the West of Sweden offers first class walking. Wander through deep forests in Sweden's southernmost wilderness, explore the islands along the coast, or follow the pilgrim trails in Skaraborg, the cradle of Sweden.
Being so close to Gothenburg means that the north-east of Bohuslän and Dalsland can offer walking with a wilderness feeling that you would otherwise have to travel far to find. Deep forests, open heathland, and glittering lakes where the black-throated loom breeds and the osprey soars, are only a short distance away from coastal walks in Sweden's only marine national park, Kosterhavet.
You can go for long walks on trails that run through the entire county, from north to south, inland along the trail Bohusleden, or by the coast along the Kustleden trail. Or you can take shorter walks, with a pleasant place to stay to which you return in the evening; for a sauna, a swim, dinner and a soft bed. Choose whichever suits you best.
The best walking: The coast of Bohuslän, the mountains Kynnefjäll and Kinnekulle.
Also good: Halleberg and Hunneberg, Svartedalen, Bredfjället and Herrestadsfjället, Billingen.
