One of the best attractions in Gothenburg, specially for nature lovers. The islands are easily reached by the ferries. If you have a transportation ticket, you don't need to buy another one for the ferry because the islands are a part of the city. There are many islands and choosing one to go to is not an easy task. Don't... More

Nothing is missing and nothing (so far) is in excess. Equally appreciated by the locals and by increasing number of visitors the archipelago offers its beauty under all 4 seasons. The big islands are easily (and almost for free) accessible by ferryboats, the small ones are reserved for motorboat, sailing and rowing people. Perfect destination for one day excursion or... More

We took to tram and ferry from Gothenburg to Branno. It was cold and windy, so good we had warm clothes on. On the island, we walked a loop for about 90minutes and only ran into one other person (plus 10 sheep!). The loop is amazing, beautiful and the views are fantastic. On the way back to the ferry, we... More

We took the ferry from the city into the islands and the sights were pretty awesome. There are horses feeding on the banks. If you want to relax and enjoy the scenery, this is an ideal ferry trip.

We took the ferry from Saltholmen which was very easy and travelled between a number of the islands. They were beautiful and it was get to have a walk between the various different landscapes. We really enjoyed the trail on Styrso and the viewpoint on Aspero was fantastic.

The hole archipelago is fantastic, every island is unique! Pick one or two you can't see them all on one visit. Stroll around the pitoresque villages and climb the granite rocks. It's absolutely gorgeous!

We took tram from Gothenburg to Salthomem to catch ferry to the islands. A really nice sail with nice scenery. We got off at furthest south of the islands and walked round one of the excellent trails the place was pretty deserted but clearly offered a lot more in the summer. There was a cafe at the harbour so we... More

There are 2 ferry stops on the island, Rödsten and Husvik. The ferries leaves Rödsten every hour on weekdays except for a break from 1230 to 1430. Ferries... More

Great way to explore the west coast's seaside. Bring your swimsuit, sunscreen and a good book and make yourself at home on one of the cliffs. This is the best place to be on a hot day (if you decide to go here on a stormy day you'll get to see some wonderful waves).
