Detailed Itinerary: Gothenburg to Grebbestad

Skip to Stockholm to Grebbestad itinerary

Day 1: Gothenburg (Embarkation Day) - Känsö - Vinga - Marstrand

M/S Wilhelm Tham departs from Gothenburg at 10:00 hrs.

Känsö Island is part of Sweden’s national heritage and one of the most curious, protected environments on the west coast. Most of the buildings were built between 1816 and 1818, a period when a quarantine station was established here. Experience the island’s exciting history via a guided tour.

Vinga is one of the best-known lighthouse stations in Sweden and has served sea transport since the Middle Ages. Troubadour, author and artist Evert Taube (1890-1976) grew up on Vinga, as his father was keeper there. The lighthouse is named in several of Taube’s well-known songs. This is a great opportunity to discover Vinga on your own and to take a refreshing dip while you’re at it.

Marstrand (also overnight stop) became one of Sweden’s most popular bathing resorts during the 1800s, gaining special status through the annual summer visits of King Oscar II. Today the city is Sweden’s sailing centre hosting several large events each summer. A guided walk through the narrow streets reveals the handsome, well-preserved houses and the favourite sites of the bathing society from royal period. The tour is spiked with exciting stories of past and present.

Day 2: Marstrand - Skärhamn - Gullholmen - Lysekil

Skärhamn is a central town on Tjörn, one of Sweden’s largest islands. Since the 1700s, Skärhamn’s growth has derived from the sea. A guided bridge walk presents an opportunity to learn how a place with a few non-owning tenants or squatters in the late 1700s became today’s community. This is followed by a visit to the Nordic Watercolour Museum.

Gullholmen is one of the oldest fishing hamlets in Bohuslän. We will visit the Skepparhuset Museum built in 1893. Today it offers not only an authentic captain’s residence, but also a ship and fishing museum, as well as an intact sail-maker’s workshop. At Gullholmen we’ll meet two oyster and mussel farmers and hear from them about these ocean delicacies.

Overnight stop in Lysekil (no guided tour) 

Day 3: Fjällbacka - Grebbestad (Disembarkation Day)

Fjällbacka - the small, idyllic fishing hamlet Fjällbacka is located in a Skagerack cove surrounded by tall cliffs. Sweden’s perhaps best-known actress, Ingrid Bergman, had her summer paradise on Dannholmen Island in the Fjällbacka archipelago. The Swedish writer of detective stories, Camilla Läckberg, grew up here and the hamlet is used as the scene for her books. A cosy guided walk through the Fjällbacka hamlet lends not only an opportunity to visit the Läckberg sites, but also to see the hamlet through Ingrid Bergman’s eyes.

The cruise ends in Grebbestad. We offer an optional bus transfer from Grebbestad to Gothenburg and the bus transfer will take approx. 2 hours (arrives in Gothenburg at approx. 16:00)

A cosy guided walk through the Fjällbacka hamlet lends not only an opportunity to visit the Läckberg sites, but also to see the hamlet through Ingrid Bergman’s eyes.

Smögen - Its unique setting makes Smögen Bohuslän’s largest tourist site. It was discovered in the early 1900s by bathing guests from Stockholm. Today the nearly one kilometre long Smögen wooden pier offers a large selection of shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants with outdoor service. We will enjoy a guided tour at Smögen’s Fish Auction founded in 1919 and now one of the most modern in the Nordic area.

Overnight stop in Lysekil (no guided tour)
