Island hopping…it’s not only a Caribbean thing!

BoathoppingSo sadly, Way Out West is over, and now arises the questions: “Here I am in Sweden, what can I do?” Although it’s not the tropical turquoise waters and white sand beach island hopping, Bohuslän has a wealth of natural beauty and fabulous cuisine. Bohuslän is a rocky coastal region of Sweden with an archipelago of over 3,000 islands, comprising the the northern portion of the Gothenburg Archipelago.

Skipping from island to island affords visitors stunning vistas and fun activities, including dips in the sea, fishing boat trips, diving, miniature golf, and visiting the uniquely fascinating Nordens Ark – a not-for-profit organization helping to save endangered species. The region also boasts some of the freshest shellfish and seafood you can find, going from sea to stomach in mere minutes!

Here is a link to a map of the ferry lines where you can find out more about some of the bigger island stops and their gastronomic and leisure offerings by clicking on them. It’s a unique way to enjoy the region and explore  a beautiful ecosystem that is often ignored in favor or the more tropical island chains of the world.
