The Experience

This is a guided boat excursion which takes you through Gothenburg’s beautiful archipelago to the lighthouse island of Vinga and back. We spend two hours on Vinga, so you have plenty of time to explore the island. During the boat trip, which takes about one and a quarter hours each way, your onboard guide provides interesting commentary about the archipelago and the attractions we pass.
