Walking in West Sweden can be a rewarding experience in many different ways. Short day trips with fine accommodation and meals made from locally sourced food, or more strenuous hikes through challenging terrain. Whichever you prefer, the choice is huge.
Unspoilt national parks, islands and rocks, wild waters, lakes of all sizes, and unspoilt canals. West Sweden offers great canoeing experiences, the peaceful natural landscape and unspoilt wilderness of Dalsland and the flora and fauna of the beautiful archipelago of Bohuslän.
If you prefer to explore West Sweden from a bicycle, there are lots of options. You can ‘island hop’ in Bohuslän, pedal at a leisurely pace along Göta Canal, or follow one of the many pleasant trails that wind their way through a varied natural landscape.
Here in Sweden you have the freedom to roam nature. And, like the most important things in life, it is for free. Just respect the flora and fauna and leave it untouched – so that future generations can enjoy the same right as you have. It’s a sweet deal – given all the natural attractions you can enjoy in West Sweden.
