Gothenburg and Western Sweden

Gothenburg is the perfect place to meander along beautiful streets and take in the picturesque architecture of the city. Venturing west towards the coast you will come across quaint fishing villages and the chance to do something a little more active.

The beautiful and diverse architecture that borders the meandering River Göta, picturesque wooden houses and relaxed spirit of Gothenburg makes it a delightful and friendly place to visit. It is the second largest city in Sweden, yet offers a very different experience to Stockholm. The best way to see the city is by kayak or on foot, and at every turn is a quirky café in which to immerse yourself in the laid back atmosphere which spreads across the city. There is plenty to see and do in Gothenburg from indulging in the tempting food markets to picking your way through the impressive array of eclectic vintage shops which are located in the Haga district; and the city’s surroundings are brimming with fun activities from kayaking, golf, riding and sailing.

Western Sweden has a coastline to die for; it plays host to breath-taking views over sprawling archipelagos, and charming seaside villages dotted with red wooden fishing huts. It is one of the few places where seafood season is year round making it the perfect coast to work your way along sampling the best of the West! Alternatively, if you are looking for something more adventurous, try your own hand on a crayfish or lobster safari and reap the rewards over a dinner of the ultimate fresh catch. The archipelagos make for a perfect setting for paddling around in a kayak, and offer a selection of idyllic picnic spots en-route. For the sport enthusiasts there are plenty of opportunities for golf, cycling, hiking and snorkelling in crystal clear water, all of which give you the chance to see some of Western Sweden’s most exciting sights.
