Many of my readers already know that the West Coast of Sweden is one of my favorite places in the country and one of the most beautiful. That feeling and having had a girlfriend from Gothenburg grants this area a special place in my heart.
The organization responsible for promoting tourism on the West Coast has published a new video dedicated to showing the hiking options available in the region.
The video “Hiking in West Sweden is like nothing else” shows five hiking trails in the Västsverige area both along the coast and in the interior of the county. These are some of the hiking trails.
- the Kuststigen, the coastal path, which runs from the island of Tjörn to the north to the Norwegian capital, Oslo
- the 44-km-long Pilgrims’ Path south of Lake Vänern going from Falköping to Varnhem
- the Bohus trail (Bohusleden) that runs through the Bohuslän region from Lindome south of Gothenburg to Strömstad on the Norwegian border
- the 71-km-long Gotaleden from Gothenburg to Alingsås
- the Pilgrims’ Path north of Dalsland a 81-km-long trail from Mellerud to Åmål
