Kosterhavets Nationalpark

Visitor center in Kosterhavet National Park.Exhibition, films, hands-on and more about Swedens first marine National Park.

Reviewed By A_Gunnarsson - Stockholm, Sweden

The Koster Islands are a fantastic part of the Bohuslän archipelago and well worth a visit. Rocky archipelago around the two larger Koster Islands with their lush "valleys" make a nice contrast. Both Islands make nice day trips but you can easily stay a week and just chill, take nice walks on the gravel roads, or rent a bike and explore the whole (south) island. You find both sandy Beaches and the more classic rocks to dive into the crystal clear waters. Just watch out for the stingers that appear if the wind blows some colder water in. For the diver the waters around the Islands bring a wealth of under water experiences. The depth between Koster and main land reaches 247m which caters for an abundance of life under the surface. Oh, and don't miss a trip to Ursholmarna, Swedens westernmost light house, and watch the seals on the way out and back!

Nordby Shoppingcenter

Reviewed By bloodbubble - Taipei, Taiwan

Was visiting a friend in Norway when she brought me here to do some shopping. Located just across the border from Norway, this shopping mall houses supermarkets, candy stores, clothes stores and restaurants. Price is so much cheaper compared to Norway. Best place to do candy shopping as the selection is very wide and the prices low. Great idea for a shopping day trip from Norway!

Hvaler Church

Reviewed By Geir S - Drammen, Norway

Vår gruppe (56stk) hadde bestilt en omvisning og litt informasjon om den gamle steinkirken fra ca år 1000 på Hvaler ! Ble informert fint av en kvinnelig kirkevert ! Hun fortalte bl.a at for mange år siden var kirken delt i to ved at di kvinnelige deler av menigheten satt på den ene siden av midt gangen , for etter gammelt sagn kom onde ånder inn fra den siden ! En døpefont var av nederlandsk opprinnelse ! Kirken er en godt bevart kirke !

Played this course in June. Nice weather and a Nice course With fantastic greens. Many holes were great, but this morning it was too wet around the greens. It is also to my opinion a little too much up and down. Overall a very good golf course, and I will soon come back.

Svinesundsbroarna

Reviewed By nordlysMH - Stromstad, Sweden

Unless you are in a hurry, avoid the newer bridge which is wonderfully designed for through traffic, including the fact that you no longer have to queue at the toll booths. Cameras get your registration number automatically and you get billed later wherever you live in Europe, and perhaps elsewhere too, a few weeks later. Payment can easily be made via the toll company's internet site.
If you are touring the country at your pace and wish to enjoy the breathtaking view from the bridge, choose the old one. Not only can you park your car nearby, you can also walk across the bridge to pick the best angle for photos of the Idefjord down below. Treacherous waters at times that require solid marine skills from those venturing through this bottleneck with smaller crafts. One more positive aspect is that ever since the new bridge opened, the old one is far less crowded. you won't have to step on other visitors' toes to get a vantage point for maximum enjoyment of the view. Finally, anybody interested in old bridge building techniques will look with interest at the details of the massive pillars helping to bridge the deep gap between the two countries

Segwaytour Stromstad & Kosteroarna

Reviewed By groeri - Halden, Norway

Been at southern Koster before, and then we rented a bike - OK way to get around the island, but at times a bit of work- those bikes are not of the ten-gear type... This time, my wife and I wanted to test the Segway way of touristing. Parked the car in Stroenstad, took the boat to the island and walked up the slope to where the tour started. After signing the neccesary papers, we got our helmets on, and started to get the feeling of the Segway on the lawn there . Five minutes of instruction, and we were on our way to a field just beside the tennis-court, where we could stretch our legs a bit - both in turns, braking and speeding. Some 5 minutes there as well, and the the tour started. Our guide took well care of us, starting off rather slowly on a pleasant round-trip, taking some photoes of us along the way ("you should not think about that while driving, let me take care of it...") He stopped from time to time, pointing out things of special interest. You pay for the trip, and the guide sets the pace according to your skills. As I said, we started off slowly, and by reaching the halfway-point managed to use the top speed (about 20 Km/h) when we wanted to. After about one and a half hours we were back at the starting point, saying goodbye to our guide, and heading for the boat back to Stroemstad
