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. Spend two nights exploring the city's rich history and varied architecture on canal-side strolls peppered with boutiques, bars and fine dining spots, before sailing out into the tranquil archipelago, to the picturesque island of Vrångö, for a further two nights in a delightful boathouse.

Day 2 | City Sightseeing

Take in the sights of Gothenburg, where beautiful architecture can be discovered around every corner. We love the cobbled streets of the Haga District. Explore the collection of unique boutiques, bars, cafes and restaurants. Perhaps take a canal boat tour or visit the city's many museums.

Today take a tram to the ferry port and head out into the archipelago. Arrive on the car-free island of Vrångö and check into your shore-side stay for the next two nights. Enjoy a floating sauna and hot tub experience before indulging in fresh seafood as the sun sets over the harbour.
