Would love some feedback on my 2-week initerary

Dear Sweden specialists,

I have posted this already in the general Sweden forum and I would be very happy for some feedback. Thank you!

I am travelling to Sweden with a friend for 2 weeks in July / August and would like to get some general advice on my itinerary (first draft ;) We will be renting a car for the most part of the trip and want to do a road trip with time for activities like walking / hiking and lots of photo opportunities. I don´t mind driving 300-400km every other day or so. For me it´s more about seeing places and landscapes than just sitting by a lake or ocean all day doing nothing... :)

I would appreciate some general feedback whether you think my plan is feasible or too rushed.

Jul 20: Arriving late in Stockholm

Jul 21 + 22: Sightseeing Stockholm

Jul 23: Driving Stockholm to Vimmerby

Jul 24: Sightseeing in Vimmerby (Astrid Lindgren, etc)

Jul 25: Vimmerby to Goteborg. Sightseeing on the way

Jul 26: Some sightseeing in Goteborg and drive to Bohuslan Coast.

Jul 27 + 28: 2 days on the B. coast (not sure yet where)

Jul 29: Drive from B. coast to Vänern Lake (not sure yet where exactly)

Jul 30: Day in Vänern Lake area

Jul 31: Drive from Vänern Lake to Siljan Lake

Aug 1: Day in Siljan Lake area

Aug 2: Drive back to Stockholm

Aug 3: Flight home

Is Siljan Lake really worth the trip? I didn´t have it on my original plan but have read some forum posts mentioning it being the "real" Sweden. How is Vänern Lake? Could this part be skipped?

I appreciate any feedback. Thank you very much!

With your base guidelines in mind I would say that the program is doable, but a bit in a rush. Short time on each place, but I think you put the your attention on the right spots.

Personally, I would skip the Vänern Lake on behalf of Siljan Lake. I also think I would set aside one more day in the Siljan area since it otherwise will be much driving around and only short stops for sightseeing. The drive from B- coast to Vänern should be replaced with driving to Siljan. This will actually free two days. In this scenario I would put the other free day on the Coast of Bohuslän which is (waether permitting) wonderful!
