2-DAY CRUISE HUNNEBOSTRAND-GOTHENBURG
Day 1 Hunnebostrand – Smögen – Fiskebäckskil – Stenungsbaden
One of the better ways to explore this coastline and its small islands are by boat and bike. Some of the narrow roads and cycle routes will easily take you round the islands.
We depart Gothenburg early, 07.00 by bus. We travel to Hunnebostrand, where på M/S Ellen af Bohuslän awaits us. First stop on our cruise is Smögen, the boardwalk "Smögenbryggan" is famous for its shops, cafes and restaurants. It is one of Sweden’s most famous tourist destinations. Everybody can find something of interest here.
The boat will then take us to Fiskebäckskil and now it is time to use the bicycles. The road to Grundsund is edged with green woodland and charming old wooden houses. You will pass beautiful landscapes before arriving in the small fishing village of Grundsund. Explore the area around Grundsund especially Islandsberg, the southernmost tip of Skaftö. The view towards Gullholmen in the south and Gåsö to the north is breath-taking.
The boat awaits you in Grundsund harbour and the cruise will take you to Stenungsbaden Yacht Club for dinner and overnight accommodation.
Day 2 Stenungsbaden – Tjörn – Marstrand – Gothenburg
After a hearty breakfast itis time to set off, either by bike and explore the island of Tjörn or take the boat to Änge and start your cycling from there.
If you started the day cycling, you can return to the boat here and follow us to Skärhamn where we all meet up again.
Either way, a visit to Pilane, sculpture park is a must. Pilane is together with Lousiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark and Vigeland Park in Oslo, one of the ”10 of the best sculpture parks in Europe” by The Guardian. The sculptures sits in a beautiful landscape that has traces from the Stone Age.
From here it is about 15 km to Skärhamn and the roads are well suited to cycling. In Skärhamn you will find Nordiska Akvarellmuseet, an exhibition centre showcasing modern art and architecture as well as traditional coastal art. Try to find time for a visit if you can.
The island of Tjörn is a lovely island to cycle round, lots of hidden coves for swimming and relaxing. Beautiful landscape that is perfect for cycling.
Three o’clock in the afternoon is departure time from Skärhamn. We depart for Marstrand, another fascinating island that was once a notorious prison. Today it is a summer paradise for shoppers, tourist and sailing enthusiasts. A fantastic Art Gallery, Strandverket is in the old fortress wall. Both the old prison and the art gallery offers guided tours. Or just walk on the beach promenade that goes all round the island, 5 km long it will take just over 1 hour. At 17.00 we get picked up by our bus for return to Gothenburg.
You can always stay and enjoy Marstrand on your own for a little longer. We can arrange accommodation at Marstrands Havshotel and then you can take the local bus back to Gothenburg the following day.
