Vacation rentals in Bohuslän

Holiday on Sweden's rocky west coast

The western Swedish region of Bohuslän stretches between the Norwegian border in the north and the metropolis of Gothenburg and, not least because of its rugged rocky landscapes with thousands of islands, is one of the insider tips among the holiday regions of the country. If you are looking for a vacation rental or a traditional Scandinavian wooden holiday home, you will find it in the larger towns of Göteborg, Uddevalla, Kungälv, Strömstad and the Marstrand sailing mecca. If, on the other hand, you like it a bit more remote, set up camp in Sweden's oyster capital Grebbestad. An insider tip for nature lovers and those seeking peace and quiet is also a domicile on the islands of Tjörn and Orust.

Travelers and Activities

On land and water in Bohuslän

The numerous bays framed by smooth rocks offer ideal conditions for kayakers. It is not for nothing that the West Swedish region with its more than 8,000 archipelagos is considered to be one of the world's best places for sea kayaking. Rent a kayak on the spot and go on an unforgettable paddle tour to dreamy islands, where you can enjoy your picnic with the sound of the waves and screams of the seagulls. Landlubbers, on the other hand, get their money's worth when hiking. You have the choice whether you want to go into the hinterland, explore the excellently developed coastal hiking trail or go on a discovery tour through the almost untouched nature of the Koster Islands.

Holidays on the Swedish Gourmet Coast

Bohuslän is not only famous for its picturesque landscape, but also for its delicacies from the sea. To enjoy the delicacies of the gourmet coast, it is best to visit one of the many excellent fish restaurants, where you will be served the "Big Five" (shrimps, Norway lobster, mussels, lobsters and oysters) in various varieties. With a bit of luck, the fishermen in the harbours will also give you a few tips on how to prepare them, so that you can immediately go to your vacation rental with fresh seafood in your luggage to try them out.

Things to know

Best travel time

Even though Sweden's west coast is very far to the north, the climate is very mild, especially in the warm season. The best travel time is between the end of May and the end of September, thanks to average maximum temperatures of 21 degrees Celsius and up to 9 hours of sunshine. A trip around 21 June during midsummer is particularly recommendable, when there are many celebrations on the spot, during which you can get close to the locals in convivial company.

Bohuslän has four regional symbols: the wild honeysuckle, the oystercatcher, the mackerel and the seal.

Top 3 travel tips

On the traces of the mystical past

Embark on an exciting search at the Vitlycke Museum, taking you back to the Bronze Age and exploring life in prehistoric times. Away from the museum, which includes a reconstructed and managed Bronze Age courtyard and a café, you will discover hundreds of rock carvings under the guidance of a guide that prove that the people of western Sweden were gifted seafarers long before the Viking Age.

With the cutter to the North Sea

Lovers of seafood will be able to enjoy themselves to the full between mid-September and mid-April, when the lobster season is in Bohuslän. The absolute highlight are the lobster safaris in September, during which you go out on board a fishing cutter and watch the fishermen not only catching the crustaceans, but also cooked with fresh lobster.

Trip to Gothenburg

Göteborg is the metropolis of the region and is therefore ideal for an excursion. In addition to Scandinavia's largest amusement park and numerous magnificent buildings from the 17th century, the city is also home to various interesting museums such as the Natural History Collection.
