The three structures on Vinga are an important seamark that everyone passes when arriving at or leaving Gothenburg by ship. But the island is not easy to reach except for the short summer period when trips run from the centre of Gothenburg. The island is...More

If you are visiting Gothenburg don't miss Vinga. Go by boat from the guestharbour or visit the nothern island Hönö and go from there. Guided tours and a café, I always bring a picnic. If you feel like a swim the water is crystal clear.

So it's not very cheap to take the boat going out to Vinga. And it's not very pleasant if the weather is bad. But it is a wonderful island. Located on the rim of the Gothenburg archipelago, it gives a soothing feeling of isolation and...More
