West Sweden’s Best Road Trips

No Swedish city blends with nature as seamlessly as Gothenburg. Its archipelago of quaint fishing villages and untouched islands promises one adventure after another. The city grew up as a hub for trade and industry—it’s the hometown of Volvo—and that spirit of innovation drives the local art and music scenes. Among the canals and tree-lined streets, you’ll also find award-winning restaurants. It’s just a few hours from Stockholm and puts the magical coastal region of West Sweden in easy reach.
