Nature is always close if you want to go biking or if you want to take a walk. On Skaftö in Lysekil municipality, there are fine cycle and hiking trails that connect large parts of the island and which partly coincide with the Coastal Path in Bohuslän.
Here are a number of scenic trails. The barren cliffs on the coast coexist with inland areas that offer meadows, small farms, cows and sheep. Close to to the trails there are beaches or cliffs where you can stop for a swim. There are benches to sit down, rest and enjoy the view and there are also barbecue areas close to some of the hiking trails.

Vägeröd - Sälvik
A visit to the nature reserve Vägeröd's valleys is a wonderful experience, especially in the spring when blue and white anemones blossom and spring birds sing. Beech trees and oaks slowly wake up after the winter months.
