West Sweden - Island walking - 5 days

Enjoy a long weekend on the Swedish west coast, and explore the picturesque islands in Bohuslän, close to Gothenburg. On this self guided walking holiday, you’ll explore some of our favourite islands and villages on Sweden’s west coast. The region called Bohuslän offers an unique archipelago with hundreds of islands, picturesque fisherman villages, granite rock beaches as well as small sandy beaches. You’ll have a nice short break with the combination nature, culture and great sea food.

Your adventure starts at historical Marstrand, which nowadays is a popular small summer island. In this area you’ll have the chance to walk three different islands in two days, all with unique experiences. The tour continues further north to beautiful Ramsvik Nature Reserve and Bohus Malmön. In this area you’ll also get to visit the lively fishing port of Smögen.

During this walking holiday you’ll stay at comfortable, carefully chosen accommodation along the coast.

This tour is perfect as a Drive & Hike. Either we book a rental car for you, or you arrange your own transportation. Although we call the tour Drive & Hike, it can also be done with local transportation.

We grade this trip as easy, since the walks are quite short in km. However, you’ll walk on trails, granite rocks, etc. where some parts can be a bit technical.
