“Amazing in the summer time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014

Amazing little islands - some with only one house on them, although you need your own boat to live in this part of the world. Branno is the best for beaches and swimming and Vrango the best for walking through nature reserves.

“Fresh taste of Swedish coast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2014 via mobile

This coast offers many great cool swimming and picnic spots. The rocky terrain lends for good seating but not accessible for wheel chairs of persons with walking difficulty. There are ferry's to take you out westward to other islands. This place is great for an hr or more, I wouldn't recommending spending a whole day if you're backpacking. Highly recommend watching the sunset or bbqing.

“A must!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2014

Just a single tram ride to the ferry, and several ferries to choose from, depending on which island you want to go to - all for the same fare. Easy and beautiful!

“Worth THE trip!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

The reason why we went to Goteborg was mostly for island hopping in the southern archipelago and it's definitely worth it! You get that (somewhat) scandinavian wild that you would get very far from cities, at least in my own experience. We visited Styrso (Uttervik is such a lovely spot) and Donso and had a taste of Vrango which looked very wild. I would definitely recommend it!

“Easy to visit the archipelago in Gothenburg”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

Just take the tram nr 11 and go to Saltholmen. With the same ticket you can change to a ferry goes to several islands in the archipelago. Our favourite islands are Vrångö, Brännö and Styrsö.
