Stretching from the stylish and handsome city of Gothenburg all the way to the Norwegian border, the beautiful Bohuslän coastline is framed by cocoa-coloured cliffs and peppered not only with red-and-white fishing villages, but also with no fewer than 8,000 granite islands, washed by a bright-blue sea that offers up an astonishing array of seafood, including mussels, oysters, langoustines and lobster.
It is the land that Swedes talk about when they say they love their country. Rather than history, it is geography that unifies them.

With the freedom of a hire car, you can take your time to explore this alluring coastline, making the most of the local ferries to enjoy several island-hopping adventures, with the option of spending a night on the remote Weather Islands, home to thousands of seabirds. Deliciously fresh, the seafood to which you are treated is a real highlight of the holiday, but the best is saved till last – you finish in Gothenburg, Sweden’s culinary capital, where seafood landed further up the coast is transformed into delectable dishes which have earned the city recognition as sheer paradise for foodies.
