Fortunately, tourism has not spoiled these beautiful islands, which are very typical. A must to visit for beautiful walks

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

We had been to Branno during our first visit... a beautiful experience, especially when you note that people live here. Remember to note the return ferry timings and also carry your picnic bags !

“A must on a beautiful summer day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

It´s easy getting out to the islands. Just take tram 9 or 11 to Saltholmen a go to the ferries. If you take a tram you don´t pay any extra for the ferry. There is parking in the harbour and one about 5 min walk away but in the summer you must be there early to get one.
If you want to take a dive from the cliffs, bring a picknic and watch the sunset, take a fika or just stroll around and relax this is perfect.
Which island should you pick? Everyone has it´s own favourite but just look out so you don´t miss the ferry back. Some of them just traffics a couple of times each day.

“Unforgetable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Spending a day (or rather days ) off on island hopping in Gothenburg's South Archipelago was the best idea for break and relaxation while on long term project in Gothenburg.
First of all, the area is beautiful, and once you get used to (often) gloomy weather with lots of rain (especially in autumn) you'll very much enjoy every single minute of it.
Not less important is that Gothenburg public transport is extremely well organized and your daily (or longer) public transport tickets pay for ferries to south archipelago islands.
I have mentioned often gloomy weather, but I've also experienced some of the most beautiful sunsets in this area. You just need to be lucky enough or stay in the area long enough to witness it :)
