    Photographer: Robert Dahlberg

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 and at amusement parks.

Wind down like a Swede

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.

Seafood safaris 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.

You might not have heard of the word fika but when you come to West Sweden you are going to love doing it, sometimes three times per day, just like Swedes.

Harvest your own superfood in Grebbestad

Don’t we all dream of giving up our day jobs and doing something we love instead? Jonas and Linnéa did and now run seaweed foraging and marine tourism company Catxalot on the Bohuslän coast.

A unique stay

Bohuslän coast has a great wilderness areas for its deserted beaches and a stunningly beautiful archipelago of 8,000 islands. One of them is the scenic island of Orust, where couple Johan Buskqvist from Sweden and Marcel van der Eng, from Holland, run waterfront boutique B&B Lådfabriken.
