In West Sweden, you can mix the bustle of city life with the slow pace of the countryside, unspoilt wilderness, and two of the biggest lakes in Europe.
Discover the remains of the Viking Age church at Varnhem and stroll along cobbled streets lined with colourful wooden houses in Hjo, on the shores of Lake Vättern. For a real fairy tale castle, visit Läckö Slott on a peninsula in Lake Vänern – Sweden’s biggest lake.
Get to know the coastline of Bohuslän with its thousands of islands formed of smooth granite rock, known for some of the best seafood in the world and where you can hike and bike on peaceful, car-free roads.
Explore lush forests scattered with a thousand shimmering lakes in the wilderness of Dalslan – a natural playground for outdoor enthusiasts where you can bile on gravel trails, hike deep into the forest, and take to the water, paddle in hand.
Tantalise your taste buds with local flavours and ingredients and excite your mind with brilliant art and local culture.
Welcome to West Sweden – the region of contrasts.
