    Welcome to West Sweden

    Photographer: 

Wind down like a Swede in the nature of West Sweden

Over a period of just three days, five international participants, all with stressful lives and professions managed to reduce their stress levels while increasing their feeling of wellbeing. How did they do it? Researchers working for the 72 Hour Cabin project provided the answer - deep in the countryside of West Sweden.

West Sweden in 2 min

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.

Shellfish experiences in Bohuslän

Outside the summer season you find the genuine Bohuslän - salty, barren, windswept and calm. Head out on a shellfish tour, to catch the finest prawns, mussels, oysters, langoustines and lobster. Add a little salt to your life.

Expedition Bohuslän

In Bohuslän there are so many unexpected things to explore and experience. Be bowled over by natural masterpieces on land and at sea. Encounter wild animals, ancient rock carvings that are the only ones of their kind on the planet, world class art, exciting history and an underwater national park.
