6. Kayaking in the world’s most beautiful archipelago

There are few places in the world that can offer kayaking like this. With its thousands of islands, stretching from Gothenburg in the south to the Koster islands in the north, this is kayaking heaven. Untouched nature, inviting boathouses, wilderness waters and glassy canals are what you should expect.

7. The best shellfish in the world

The local lobster, langoustine, oysters, prawns and mussels are world-class. Away from the summer hotspots of Bohuslän you can find the authentic Bohuslän of weathered, barrens rocky islands and outcrops. Join a local fishing crew and hunt for these delicacies in the pristine, mineral-rich waters off the coast.

8. Water-based activities

Seal spotting, boat trips and crab-fishing from a pier are popular here. There are many activities for the whole family on or close to water.
