Crystal clear waters inviting you for a swim, seafloor is pleasant hard sand. Seashells of differens species are abundant on the shore. Pastures are softly covering the inner northern island with lush walking paths to enjoy. There are cafés on the northern island, a small...More

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

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

Not in the park because it is a submarine park ;-). There is a "naturum" = nature museum on Koster where you get information and guidance to the park. However, on North Koster (Koster is two islands) there is a beautiful... More
