To take a trip to the islands in southern archipelago is the most price worthy thing you can do in a day in the summer. A lovely boat trip, several islands to visit, some of them, for example Brännö, Styrsö and Vrångö have very nice places to eat. In sunny days there will be a lot of people though.

We took the ferry to Vrango and spent the day. Both the ferry trip and our time on Vrango were fantastic - definitely the highlight of our time in Sweden. The ferry trips were great and provided picturesque views of countless small settlements on various islands. We started our time on the island at the cafe with lovely desserts and... More

I went to Styrso and Donso and I felt in love with these places! They're completely surrounded by nature, without cars. The only sound you can hear are the birds. The coast appears like in the postcards, with a lot of seaside houses.

A short boattrip from Göteborg puts you on several small and unique islands. Brännö is one of them. Take a walk, stop for a swim or eat a nice meal at the guesthouse.

Både med egen båt eller med färja finns varianter för upplevelsen. Alltifrån pittoreska samhällen till sandstränder. Även själva båtturen är också en upplevelse med varierande och vackra öar och sund. DU kan variera din båttur då det finns olika leder att välja mellan. Åker du färja kan du stanna till på några av de vackra öarna. Fina promenadstråk, lokala pubar,... More

I decided to visit Vrångö on a whim. I hadn't prepared or planned a thing; I just wanted an adventure. You take Tram 11 from anywhere in the city in the direction of West. Stay on it until the final stop 'Saltholmen', that's where the ferry leaves from. I saw that Vrångö (the furthest island away) is a nature reserve,... More

Takes a while to get to the ferry but ferry rides are very convenient. The islands are genuinely beautiful, calm and quiet. Wonderful for strolling and hiking. Well worth the visit if you have an additional day in the city. Don't forget to bring some food as most cafes and restaurants were closed since it was not the season. But... More

Visited Two islands, Styrsö and Donsö. Pack your food with you. Nice place for escape out of city. Traveling to islands is included in normal Gothenburg ticket (no addition or extensions are required) walking on beach sand and enjoying sun is perfect on a sunny day. Preferably trekking shoes if you are planning to take long trails. (Because of rocks).... More

Going to one of the islands is worth a trip during any season! I've been there in summer, autumn and winter/early spring. I can both recommend visiting the islands Styrsö and Vrångö, there are amazing hiking trails from 2 to 5 km, which can also be combined. You find kafés (one on Vrångö, several on Styrsö which is the biggest... More
