Southern Goteborg Archipelago, Gothenburg

(4.8/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
Discover a car-free oasis just outside of Sweden's second-largest city at Southern Goteborg Archipelago, the popular island chain off of Gothenburg. Spend time on the beach relaxing, fishing, boating, and kayaking, or explore charming villages by foot. Visit one of the nine larger islands, such as Styrso and Branno, or discover smaller and lesser-known options. Remember, however, that you can travel only by ferry, electric car, scooter, or bike. The islands gets quite crowded in the summer. Work out when and for how long to visit Southern Goteborg Archipelago and other Gothenburg attractions using our handy Gothenburg vacation route planner.
