Decide When to Go

Our season starts early May until early September

May to mid-June

May is a lovely month, buzzing with anticipation for the upcoming summer. The leaves have appeared on the trees and flowers have started to bloom. You may awake to a springtime frost which soon melts away when the sun rises above the horizon. Being high up North, daytime is very long and it hardly gets dark at night. Midsummer falls on a Friday around June 20 to mark the summer solstice. This to many Swedes is a more important celebration than Christmas.

Late June to mid-August

The sea has started to warm as we enter the prime summer months. Temperatures can hit 25c in June, July and August, very occasionally edging up towards 30c. This is when Bohuslän Coast really comes alive, as the fishing villages fill with tourists looking to get a taste of some of the famous Bohuslän seafood. The Swedish summer is characterised by seemingly endless days. This is the perfect time of the year for some late evening kayaking as you decide where to put up camp for the night. Don’t miss the chance to enjoy swimming in the clear waters off the coast and all other perks of the high season.

Late-August to early-September

The days have started to cool down but the sea is just about warm enough to enjoy an evening swim. Sunsets are at their best at this time of the year and the final rays lighting the pink Bohuslän granite is a sight you will remember forever. The nights are darker meaning the stars are visable again and on a clear night you can see the milkyway streak across the night sky. An evening spent by the campfire is highly recommended before you prepare to snuggle in your sleeping bag for the night.

Pack your Case

We recommend packing a smaller carry-on pack with your clothes, if you are also bringing a larger suitcase for the rest of your stay in Sweden, we can hold onto any that baggage for you until the end of your trip.
