Sweden trip planning help

Jump to last reply

We're beginning to plan our trip to Sweden. The high-level details so far: we're going to travel late May 2013, to do the Volvo overseas delivery program. We'll likely spend 8 to 9 days while there. We like both city as well as rural travel; museums, nice restaurants, walking & window shopping, hiking, kayaking, etc. I'm thinking we'll start in Goteborg, spend a couple days in the city, then pick up the car. I'd like to use the car to explore the west coast of Sweden (Bohuslän Archipelago? Dalsland?), getting out of the city for a couple days. I think then we'll drop the car back off and take a train to Stockholm and spend the last few days there before flying home.

The city parts of the trip & the train are relative easy to plan. What I wonder is if anyone has any input on the portion in between. It looks like sea kayaking is a possibility, and hiking as well. Any little towns, nice B&Bs or hotels to recommend? How difficult will the driving be? (We've driven in Provence, hill towns of Italy, Ireland, Crete, for context.) Any help will be appreciated!
