A coastal region consisting of thousands of small rocky islands, Bohuslän offers a chance to reconnect with nature and is a must-stop spot when exploring Sweden’s west coast. Each rugged islet is dotted with quaint fishing villages, picturesque beaches and charming red and white huts, indicative of the area’s rich cultural heritage and close-knit communities. Akin to an outdoor playground, adventure seekers can sail, swim, fish, hike, cycle and camp in Bohuslän, as well as try their hand at the lesser-known ‘kayoga’ (yes, that’s yoga on a kayak). Bohuslän's cultural heritage is equally impressive,
with a long history dating back to the Bronze Age. Here, visitors can discover ancient rock carvings, medieval castles and charming wooden houses that have been passed down from generation to generation. The region's foodie culture is another highlight, with an emphasis on fresh seafood and locally sourced ingredients that reflect the area's long history of fishing and agriculture. Head to Grebbestad – the 'oyster capital of Sweden' – to try oysters, mackerel, crab and lobster. Enjoy a scenic sunset drive along the rugged cliffs, with various lookout points from which to admire the calm bays and pristine beaches, or switch up the view and head out to sea in a boat for an even more immersive experience.
