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.

Meet the Locals

There are many ways to experience everyday life or a new city from someone else’s perspective. It has never been so easy to personalise your trip before. Some might organise a guided tour, take you on a jogging tour or show you how to bake their favourite cake.

The Capital of Fika

If you want to experience Swedish fika at its best, you should really head for Alingsås. The café town of Alingsås, the Swedish coffee-and-cake capital or quite simply the Capital of Fika. With a fine tradition of coffee and cakes and around thirty cafés in a relatively small town centre, the saying fits.
