On the opposite side of the country from the elegant capital, Stockholm, which is an essential stop on any self-respecting tour of Nordic cities, West Sweden serves up a smörgåsbord of delights. Myriad rocky islands crowd its coastline; colourful fishing villages hark back to the 18th-century herring trade; and some of the world's tastiest seafood practically jumps onto your plate.

The fine gastronomy is mirrored in its communities, and Gothenburg, in particular, has become a byword for cosmopolitan sophistication and understated elegance.

But it is the beautiful Bohuslän coastline that is the undoubted star: stretching down from the Norwegian border, it is an eye-pleasing confection of bright-blue sea and over 8,000 granite islands – many of which are little bigger than a picnic blanket. Behind it, cocoa-coloured cliffs shelter mysterious Bronze Age rock carvings, and the attractive coastal towns of Fjällbacka and Fiskebäckskil are jumping-off points for a number of exciting, island-hopping adventures – visit the traffic-free Koster Islands or the Weather Islands , a heavenly spot for a stroll followed by a seafood dinner as the sun sets. Alternatively, see our Sweden page for the full range of gentle touring and snow holidays in Sweden.
