7 days on a superyacht in Western Sweden

7 days on a superyacht in Western Sweden

1 of 7 1/7
Superyacht destination Strömstad


The perfect place to start a luxury yacht vacation along Sweden's west coast is in the picturesque village of Strömstad. This seaside resort belonged to Norway until 1658 and features red wooden houses set on the water’s edge.

Just off the coast you will find Sweden’s first marine national park — Korhavet. The 450 sq. km protected zone is home to the country’s richest marine life, boasting more than 6,000 different species as well as reefs of deep water coral Lophelia Pertusa.

The Koster Väderö Fjord is located within the park and is connected to the Norwegian Trench, which is in turn connected to the Atlantic Ocean. The conditions in the trench are almost oceanic which means creatures that would normally be found on the continental slopes thrive here.

If you fancy doing something on dry land you can take a bicycle ride or a guided hike around the Koster islands. Kosters Trädgårdar (Koster Gardens) is recommended for lunch; the organic garden restaurant only cooks the day's fresh catch, garnished with herbs and vegetables it has grown and has been named “Sweden’s most sustainable restaurant”.
