Sweden’s West Coast is a picturesque region where you’ll find a wealth of exciting things to do from Gothenburg to the Norwegian border. Along the coast, visitors can enjoy some of the greatest seafood in the world and venture out to countless islands for further excursions. Seals are a common sight along the coast, and kayak rentals make it easy to see these creatures up close. The West Coast is even home to the first national marine park in the country, Kosterhavet National Park, among the Koster Islands.

Of course, that’s just one of the many different kinds of spa treatments available, so you can pamper yourself with a variety of therapies at high-end facilities.
