Description

Enjoy a tour to Gothenburg's beautiful northern archipelago! Öckerö municipality is spread over 10 islands situated only 25 minutes from Gothenburg City and is connected to the mainland only by ferry. Öckerö is the municipality's maritime centre hosting fishing boats and boathouses. This genuine archipelago environment will get you close to arctic flora, ancient relics and stunning views. Witness the view of the sea, the beautiful harbors and charming fishing huts. Start your archipelago tour with a panoramic drive of the captivating islands, Öckerö and Hälsö where you will make a stop at the old Öckerö Church dating back to the Middle Ages. Enjoy a visit to the charming local folklore centre where you will be served coffee with pastry before leaving Öckerö for the connecting islands of Hönö and Fotö. On the bridge between Hönö and Fotö make sure to have a look out the window for an extensive and breathtaking view of the archipelago. You will also join your guide on a walking tour of one of the typical old fishing villages, where the fishing huts are nestled amongst the granite landscape of the archipelago. After the walk, the tour returns pierside.
