We just loved our day on both the North and South island. The light house twins on the north island are worth visiting. On a clear day you can see Norway! The ferry across to the South island is super cute and quick. We walked...More

The ferry ride to the island was picture perfect (in the sunshine). We immediately visited the tourist information office, which had a lot of good brochures and activities for children. We then rented some old beat-up bikes and explored South Koster for most of the...More

The Koster islands offers a unique wildlife with seals, several species of birds and underwater coral reefs. First time I snorkled here this year - several species of wrasse, flounder fish, gobies and other small fish if you take your time to look among the...More

Definitely worth a visit if you're in Stromstad (not sure what else you'd do there anyway). The ferry is cheap but be sure to double check the time tables (the times are a bit spread apart and depend on exactly where on the islands you...More

Took a ferry to Koster Islands. Multiple boats going to both islands so you need to make sure which boat to take. Signs were inadequate so best ask. I went to the North Koster first. Hike the white trail to the coast. Spent some time...More

The Kosterhavets National Park is a wonderful place to lose yourself in nature. When I visited, the islands were carpeted in wildflowers, especially North Koster - the 'wilder' of the two islands. The walking trails are well marked and you can get a free map...More

The island of South Koster is a gem. The ferry takes about an hour from Stromstad, North Harbour, and there are 3 landing points on the island (and 2 more on North Koster, which is smaller and more rugged/rocky). At each landing point there are...More
