You can use the public transport (bus) to reach the port. One a autumn sunny day it is a delight. The waters are very clear and blue. There are plenty of wild forest and wild food all around the islands. It is the same images that you see if sweden in Ikea , of green forest and various types if... More

You will experience a very different seaside with wonderful rocks and islands. You can take the ferry to many small islands and explore the nature in each and every one of them.

Tour the islands free on beautifully appointed ferries which have cold food and coffee counters. Hop on and hop off at will. Explore one island or see them all. We had an absolute whale of a time sailing from island to island in warmth and comfort. What a great value day out. The journey to saltholme itself is a pleasure... More

While visiting family in Sweden, my friend and I took a day trip by ferry to the Southern Goteborg Archipelago, and were delighted to see these amazing islands along the trip. On the most southern island we had lunch at a wonderful little restaurant, sitting outside to soak up the warm sunshine. We then hiked along a path to a... More

We were here on a bright, sunny January day that was about as good as it gets in winter in Sweden. We were in the mood for some air, so took one of the ferries to Branno. We spent the midday time wandering the island, by rocks, beaches, quaint houses, a sheep farm, etc. Very picturesque. There is a fairly... More

We took a cruise on a Christmas Julbörd boat and had the best time. The archipelagos were stunning on this cold, clear day and the sunset was golden red. I would love to go out there in the summer and I look forward to doing it.

I live in Gothenburg and every now and then I tour a new island. Each island has its own traits, and you can select one best fit for your outing on the city's tourist website. Brännö was nice for a day excursion, and vrångö is a great swimming place. Just an hour ferry from Saltholmen, something to get away from... More

Each island in the southern archipelago is unique. Brännö is ideal for a weekend trip... Vrångö is a great destination if you like to take a look at the infinite sea. I lived in Asperö and absolutely loved it! cozy and friendly... whichever island you pick to visit you wont regret it if you are looking for calm and beautiy

I love the southern archipelago, especially in the summertime. Nothing better then enjoying a boattrip, great food and a swin or two in the ocean. You can also take the ferry from Saltholmen if you dont have your own boat! Enjoy ☺️

It's very nice that you can use the same ticket on the trams as on the ferries. The most genuine islands are Vrångö and Vargö. The nicest island that people live on is Styrsö. Remember to bring drinking water and food if you are staying at Vrångö or Vargö for a day. You can not buy anything there. Also -... More
