The west coast of Sweden is a good place to enjoy fresh seafood. The waters of the coast of Bohuslän is a veritable smorgasbord of different types of seafood and visitors can enjoy not only the end product but also the process of catching or fishing for seafood. Stop along the way today to join sea safaris or walk along piers.
If you wish, you can visit Koster Marine Park for a day. You can cycle on the car-free islands of the archipelago and/or paddle a sea kayak. Other activities in this pristine and unique environment include fishing, seal spotting trips, fishing for crabs, and beach combing. More than 6,000 sea creatures, including rare seabirds, brachiopods, sponge and coral larvae, live in the waters of this preserve, which is Sweden's first national marine park. The return boat trip leaves from Strömstad, close to Fredrikstad.
Shortly before you arrive into Fjällbacka, visit the 3,000-year-old Tanum rock carvings, a UNESCO World Heritage site. These Bronze Age petroglyphs, number in the thousands. About 600 panels are included in the UNESCO World Heritage site, once the coastline of a fiord thousands of years ago. Many of the glyphs show boats, humans with bows, spears or axes, rituals and hunting scenes.
