Nature attractions, coast, archipelago and islands

Travel tips for motorhome holiday close to nature

Are you looking for an ocean breeze, cliffs and waves? Do you enjoy the marine life in ports and coastal villages and towns? Do you enjoy outdoor life, climbing, beaches and cold baths? If these are your favourite things to do on your motorhome holiday you easily find your favourite spot somewhere along Sweden's 2400-kilometre-long coast. With a motorhome, you can reach costal destinations and park close to water, cliffs and on islands. 

Along the coast in Bohuslän, Halland, Öland, Gotland and Roslagen the summer and holiday atmosphere is welcoming and cheerful. The boat people cheer one and another and there are plenty of well-kept bathing places for you to find families and children enjoying the water. If you like peace and quiet there are plenty of secluded place to take a dip in the cold blue.

Summer is the best season to discover archipelago life on the West coast or the East coast of Sweden. 

Book your motorhome early and maximize the summer's experience with long days and bright evenings by the water.

In autumn, the coastline offers stunning nature experiences and many outdoor companies offer kayaking, climbing and hiking. With a motorhome, you can easily travel far away from everyday life.

A popular destination for your motorhome vacation is the beautiful coast of Bohuslän. Just north of Gothenburg you can visit the island and costal destinations Öckerö, Tjörn, Orust, Lysekil, Kungshamn, Fjällbacka and Koster Islands. It is easy to find scenic campsites in the area. 

Steep cliffs, huge cuts and Sweden's only fjord - Gullmarn - make the Bohuslän coastline unique. Excursions that we can recommend are the medieval fortress Marstrand, the watercolour museum in Skärhamn or the Nordens Ark Zoo. The Tanum's rock carvings in Bohuslän is a UNESCO World Heritage site. 

In Lysekil you will find companies offering outdoor adventures such as climbing and discovering the coastline in a kayak.

Halland holiday highlights

Halland and Skåne, Southern Sweden beaches and countryside attractions!

On the coast of Halland, south of Gothenburg, the landscape changes its character. Here you can find shallow beaches, family -friendly swimming and other fun water activities. The fresh west wind creates good conditions for water sports, such as wind or kite surfing.

Famous coastal destinations are Bua fishing village, Onsala, Åsa, Mellbystrand or Båstad.  In spring-time you can take a (ice) dip in the small town Steninge, the “spring bath" is a famous event. 

If you are tired with the beach life, you can cycle on the Kattegatt trail (Kattegattleden), hike or bike on Hallandsåsen ( an impressive ridge on the border between the Swedish counties Skåne and Halland.) or visit the attractions in the area: Tjolöholm Castle, Varbergs Fortress, Varbergs´s outdoor bathhouse, the charming town of Laholm or Steninge glassworks.
