We love this film from West Sweden! Join us as we experience the regions of Bohuslän, Dalsland, Västergötland and the city of Gothenburg; from early spring watching the cranes dance at Lake Hornborga, to summertime adventures at the salty west coast, to Christmas festivities on islands, in palaces and at amusement parks.
The Bohuslän archipelago runs almost 280 kilometers up Sweden’s west coast and is an area of outstanding natural beauty. CNN Travel ranks it the seventh most beautiful natural wilderness area in the world. Check out the ferry lines and our route suggestions and go island hopping in Bohuslän. WELCOME ONBOARD!
There are few things that Swedes associate more with summer than the celebration of midsummer. Families and friends gather to enjoy dancing and singing, combined with delicious food and flavoured schnapps.
Here on the island of Tjörn on Sweden’s west coast, we love art and culture. We also love the triathlon! So for the tenth consecutive year we will be blending together our two passions at the end of August. You’ll have the opportunity to enjoy amazing art in the open-air Sculpture at Pilane exhibition and at the Nordic Watercolour Museum together with thousands of athletes competing.
To make your summer holiday truly unforgettable, choose West Sweden as your destination and enjoy crystal-clear waters, fresh local seafood, an unspoilt natural landscape, and lots to see and do.
