Excursion tips just outside Gothenburg

There are plenty of exciting things to see and experience in the area just outside Gothenburg.

Explore the archipelago islands of Hönö, Styrsö, Donsö, and Vrångö. Or visit Gunnebo Castle, Alingsås, Floda, and Nääs on the mainland.

All destinations are easily reached by public transportation.

Archipelago tour

Experience the archipelago when it's perhaps at its most beautiful, crisp, and with its muted color palette. Step aboard Kastor's guided tour from Hönö Klåva harbour that takes you out into the wild Vinga archipelago, which at this time is almost exclusively inhabited by birds and seals. 

Kayaking in Bohuslän

Who doesn’t love kayaking the waters of Bohuslän in summertime? But what about in wintertime? Paddling here in the winter and spring, outside the peak seasons, takes you closer to the real Bohuslän and lets you enjoy its true nature.

Winter in Ulricehamn

Thanks to its hilly and snow-sure terrain, Ulricehamn has become one of the best and most popular winter sports destinations in southern Sweden.

Whether you're a beginner on the slopes, a high-level cross-country skier, or planning to take your kids on their first ski vacation, you're welcome at Ulricehamn's two complete winter sports facilities, located just an hour's drive from Gothenburg.
