Visit the islands out in the southern archipelago - close from the city center!
The islands stretch from Rivö in the north to Vrångö in the south. Some islands you only get to during the summer - if you don't have your own boat. All islands are car-free. Below we mention some of the islands in the southern archipelago.
If you are here in the summer and love the sea and small picturesque islands, don't miss going out for a visit. Of course, it's just as well to go in autumn, dress warmly and bring a thermos with hot liquid and a pair of good walking shoes. On the islands you can hike, swim, climb, dive, kayak, eat well and shop. There is something for everyone.
The largest islands are:: Brännö, Styrsö, Donsö, Vrångö och Asperö. Some of the others are: Köpstadsö, Stora Förö, Knarrholmen, Kallö, Kårholmen, Vargö, Sjumansholmen.
To get out to the islands, you must go to Saltholmen. You can do this either by tram or by car. When you arrive, you can choose several different boat lines depending on where you want to travel. On the ferry you can take your bike with you if you want. Use your travel pass for Gothenburg Region's bus and tram traffic.
The whole year: Throughout the year, Västrafik operates several different lines out to different islands from Stenpiren. Line: 282,283,284. The boat out to Brännö Brygga is operated by Styrsöbolaget in June - August.
