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.
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.
The Billingen plateau in the West Swedish province of Västergötland is the location of one of Europe’s most important bird lakes and wetlands: Lake Hornborga Nature Reserve. Every spring the lake attracts tens of thousands of visitors – both birds and humans.
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.
Castles, water parks, adventure pools, museums, forts and animal parks – West Sweden has something for everyone, whether you are travelling on your own, with children or with a large group. This is an area you will want to return to.
Here you can meet locals eager to share everything from their favorite hiking trails to cooking skills. We have also gathered inspiring stories and a few things to keep in mind if you are new to the sharing economy.
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.
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.
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.
