tips and facts:

+ Where to stay:

Väderöarnas Värdhus: a guest house on an island, far away from the shore. The sea, the silence,... one of the best place ever! Book a boat from Fjällbacka.

+ Where to eat: 
Rökeriet, on the haven of Strömstad. Looking at the ferries leaving for Norway, enjoy local fresh sea food. Typically swedish! www.rokerietistromstad.se
+ What to do: Tanumshede: World Heritage (UNESCO) rock carving from the bronze age in astonishing landscapes. Beautifully designed ritual scene represented on rocks that used to be on the sea shore. www.vitlyckemuseum.se
