Going to one of the islands is worth a trip during any season! I've been there in summer, autumn and winter/early spring. I can both recommend visiting the islands Styrsö and Vrångö, there are amazing hiking trails from 2 to 5 km, which can also be combined. You find kafés (one on Vrångö, several on Styrsö which is the biggest... More

Several islands each with a different character, two or three can be visited in one trip. There are good signposted walks and swimming places. Some of the islands have cafes but they have limited opening times. Check or take food with.

Despite visiting in mid winter (February), we had a beautiful sunny, cloudless day in Gothenburg and opted for a day out on the Ferry visiting the islands with our two girls (age 7 and 10). Thoroughly enjoyed - but I would probably recommend saving this for a day when the weather is good! After a long winter working in the... More

Southern Goteborg Archipelago is oozing w/beauty and history. Hop on the ferry and head out for a afternoon picnic on one of the many islands or spend a day island hopping and absorbing yourself in the past. Visit the first Christian church and stroll amongst the ruins of a village. Or just sit along the harbor and enjoy a glass... More

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
