Holiday Idea

Enjoy a city-to-sea retreat in Gothenburg, the cultural heart of West Sweden and one of the most sustainable destinations in the world. Explore the city's rich history and varied architecture on canal-side strolls past boutiques, bars and fine dining spots before sailing out into the tranquil archipelago for an overnight stay in a charming boat house.
