Kosteröarna - the Koster islands

The almost car-free Koster Islands are Sweden’s most westerly populated islands and consist of the main islands of North and South Koster. Around them lie the Koster archipelago with a large number of skerries and rocky isles and the Kosterhavet marine national park. The passenger boats Kosterbåtarna depart several times a day for our most westerly nature reserve.
