Bohuslän attracts visitors with a unique combination of food, outdoor, and cultural experiences. Bohulsän is part of West Sweden and stretches from Gothenburg all the way up to the Norwegian border and to Dalsland.
The region is known for its archipelago, fishing villages, granite rocks and the sparkling sea. Here you can enjoy oysters, lobsters, crabs and prawns, whether at a fine restaurant, on a sunny dock or on a warm rock.
Nordic Watercolour Museum
Artists have always been attracted by Bohuslän. The landscape serves as their source of inspiration. This becomes especially apparent in the Nordic Watercolour Museum at Skärhamn on the island of Tjörn. A few years ago the museum was voted Sweden’s Museum of the Year.
In recent years, Bohuslän has featured internationally in major travel, outdoor, and food magazines.
