Sweden - The Land Rover Country Tour

Sun 23 to Sat 29 August 2020

= POSTPONED DUE TO CURRENT CORONA BORDER REGULATIONS.

Fully accompanied 7-day Land Rover Adventure.

  • Your route choice:
    • A/ 2 nights in your own cabin (open choice of cabin specs) during the comfortable maritime crossing from Kiel (Northern Germany) to Göteborg (West coast of Sweden) with Stena Line.
    • B/ Drive directly to Gothenburg via a short ferry crossing (45 min.) followed by the famous Sontbrug bridge. Additional overnight stay possible on the way.
  • * 1 night in a former Relais & Chateaux hotel near Tanumshede.
  • * 3 nights in a charming country hotel near Arvika, magnificently situated in the middle of the extensive lake region.

 

Bohuslän on the West coast, islets and round shaped rocks, with countless fisherman’s ports. The wooden houses, painted in colours ranging from pastel to brown, are truly picturesque. In this region we find the world famous rock-drawings (Hällristningar).

Dalsland : also called “Miniature Sweden” because all landscape features of Sweden are united in this relatively small province where you will find forests, hills, heather fields and swamps, and of course the vast lakes that penetrate all the way up into Värmland, the canoeist’s paradise. These woods are also home to the Elks with their impressive antlers.

Värmland : Endless forests of firs and birches cover the hillsides where small body’s of water join and broaden into long deep lakes. The land so well described by Selma Lagerlöf. Here in the unique reserve that is GLASKOGEN we are welcomed at the start of an adventurous canoeing day and a sporting mountainbike day. A forester’s barbecue for lunch in Lappen tipis and spectacular VIKING activities included ....

 

Note:

Ideal 4x4 (+ 4x2 SUV) ride for beginners and (sporty) nature lovers!
