Experience the beauty of Gothenburg aboard the M/S S:t Erik and enjoy a guided tour of the archipelago.

Running during the summer months only, make the most of the bright sunny days and see Sweden’s famous natural beauty from the comfort of your own seat, passing the harbour and historic Älvsborg Fortress along the way, two of Gothenburg’s most important landmarks.

Tour duration: 2h 30mins

Please note: To take a sightseeing tour by boat you will need to collect a free ticket from Stromma´s ticket kiosks on the departure quay before the tour departs. If the ticket booth is closed please go directly to the boat and show your valid Gothenburg Pass to the staff onboard. You cannot pre-book a sightseeing tour with your Gothenburg Pass. Tickets are subject to availability.  

Important notice: Due to seasonality the Archipelago Tour with Guide will be open Tues - Sat until 18th of August. Back in May 2019.

Top tip: During the summer it is a good idea to visit the ticket booth early the same day to collect your sightseeing tour ticket. Sometimes there are a lot of visitors and some tours may be full during the high season. If you do not get a ticket to one of the tours you had planned you can ask for tickets to the next tour the same day

The Experience:

There’s no better way to spend a summers day in Gothenburg than on a guided boat tour of the stunning archipelago. Experience Sweden’s natural beauty for yourself and cruise along the water to enjoy a two-and-a-half-hour ride on the M/S S:t Erik.

Take in the views along the waterway and bustling harbour and look out towards the picturesque islands. Gothenburg’s archipelago is made up of 20 islands stretching out from the coastline, including stunning beaches, and tiny rural villages – so don’t forget your camera!

You’ll also pass the historic Älvsborg Fortress, the large sea fortress at the mouth of the Göta River in Rivö fjord, on one of the islands. Your guide will be able to tell you about the significance of this 17th-century fortress and the defensive part it played in Gothenburg’s history.
