Details

Explore Öckerö; Gothenburg’s stunning northern archipelago. Your tour begins with a sightseeing coach drive through Gothenburg. Travelling through the heart of the city, you will pass Götaplatsen, and the Poseidon Fountain. Your drive continues past the Museum of Fine Arts, the Concert Hall and the Municipal Theatre as you head towards the Fish Market, Opera House and Lisberg Amusement Park. You will then have approximately 1½ hours’ free time in the city, before heading out to the archipelago by ferry. The beautiful northern archipelago of Öckerö is spread over 10 islands; situated 25 minutes from Gothenburg and connected to the mainland solely by ferry. This maritime centre provides glorious ocean views and is host to an array of fishing boats and boathouses; surrounded by arctic flora, ancient relics and charming fishing huts. A short stop will be made at the old Öckerö Church dating back to the Middle Ages. Enjoy a visit to the local folklore centre, where you will be served with coffee and a pastry, before continuing on to the connecting islands of Hönö and Fotö. On the island of Hönö, you will take a short guided walking tour, followed by some free time to stroll through the typical old fishing village, where rustic huts are nestled amongst the granite landscape. Afterwards, return to the mainland for the journey back to your ship.
