Morning After a good night’s sleep, you will take the train to Kungälv station, where you will be picked up by car and driven to Marstrand. Before the Marstrand ferry camp, we stop at one of western Sweden’s all microbreweries, Inland brewery, for a visit and beer tasting. The brewery hall is located in an old shipyard and has a history that inspires the master brewer. Each beer tells about exciting times, events and people from the area.

Lunch The rest of the day is spent on your own discovering Marstrand, the island that for many years has housed the fine people, arranged world-unique sailing competitions and in the beginning acted as a prison site. You take the ferry across the strait and enjoy the rest of the day.

The hiking trail that takes you around the whole island, offers a fantastic view of the sea, the first part goes in a lush forest path and further out on bare cliffs with a dramatic landscape that is amazingly beautiful. Take a trip back in time & visit the former prison Carlsten’s fortress, Come back to the inside of the island and the bubbling quay. Here you will surely find a nice restaurant for a refreshing glass and a good piece of food. At Marstrand, a day passes too fast!

Käringön is a fantastic car-free island, full of white small archipelago houses and red boathouses. The story stretches from the 16th century and is shaped by the hard life that it meant to be a fisherman and the constant presence of the sea. The sea took and the sea gave. Feel free to follow the local community association’s tours to learn more.

DAY 5 – KÄRINGÖN

Day 5 you spend completely on your own on the island  Käringön. Wonderfully relaxed on the cliffs or walking around the island with the frothy sea and the splash of salt. The weather is always present on Käringön and the islands in the archipelago. To live out here is to adapt and take the day as it comes.

Take the opportunity to just enjoy this wonderful personal archipelago island, much more Bohuslän than this can not be!

At 18.00 pm the ferry returns to Orust, where your adventure fixer waits and drives to Stenungsund station (unless otherwise agreed).

Tip! Book an extra night in Stenungsund or Gothenburg!
