West Sweden is made up of three provinces, each with its own identity, history, and charm. The rugged beauty of the rocky cliffs, islands, and coast in Bohuslän make it one of the most popular areas of the country for a summer holiday, both for Swedes and Norwegians, while Dalsland is one of the smallest provinces of Sweden, but with vast forests and woodlands. The fields and farms of Västergötland lie between Lake Vänern, the third-largest lake in Europe, and deep Lake Vättern.
