Winter in Klåva

Do not miss a trip to the archipelago in the winter. Calm mixed with powerful winds, and if we are lucky we will see a powdery white winter landscape with an ice-covered harbour.

Boat trip with Kastor

Experience a beautiful winter archipelago aboard the charming fishing boat Kastor. With warm jackets and blankets, a short visit is made to the wildly beautiful Vinga archipelago. Now mostly populated by birds and seals, with a muted color palette over the mountains and sea. After an hour, you’ll be back in the harbor.

The Gothenburg archipelago trail

The Gothenburg archipelago trail, a part of the coastal trail, is a continuous hiking trail of 27 km and three stages, which stretches from Burö in the north, via Öckerö and Hönö, to Fotö in the south.

Book a hotel package and get a picnic basket to bring along, with tasty sandwiches, snacks and hot coffee or tea in a thermos.

Winter bathing

Are you one of the brave ones who winter bathes? Just a 10-minute walk from Klåva lies Hästens bathing spot with both a pier and a ladder.

The islands’ ambassador, Annelie Pompe shares her best tips for the bath.
