As undulating waves wash ashore, the crisp white walls of Kajkanten are illuminated by the rising sun on the beautiful island of Vrångö in the Gothenburg Archipelago. Run by a family who have lived in the Archipelago for generations, eleven boat houses stand atop the cobbled natural surrounding landscape.
Each light-filled boathouse is equipped for a self-catering stay, with clean, calming and minimalist interiors drawing attention to the beautiful fishing village and nature reserve beyond. Next to Kajkanten is Fiskeboa, a charming seafood restaurant offering delicious local catches of the day and exquisite hospitality.
For those brave enough to take a dip in the clear blue ocean, Kajkanten’s floating sauna awaits, equipped with a dining area, wrap-around deck and hot tub looking out over the neighbouring islands.
Kajkanten offers guests the chance to explore the car-free island through fishing trips, kayaking, guided tours, hiking excursions and island hopping. Exploring the surrounding nature reserves are a must, filled with hidden beaches, cliffs and rare wild plant species.
With Gothenburg city centre just under an hour away by ferry and tram, this remote retreat is the perfect escape away from the bustling metropolis.
