As close as you get

The first in divided into various legs, starting in Lindome in the south and stretching all the way to Strömstad in the north. Kuststigen runs from Svinesund to Strömstad.

Koster National park was inaugurated on the 9th of September 2009 by king Charles XVI and it is Sweden´s first marine national park. Its 400 square kilometres streches around the Koster islands and the Koster fjord, from the Norwegian border in the north to Tanum in the south. The park borders Ytre Hvaler National park on the Norwegian side, declared open by the Norwegain crown prince on the 10th of Septmber 2009.

Thanks to its combination of salt and brackish water the Koster sea hosts more than 12 000 species!

There are various ways of discovering this amazing place. If you are trevelling on your own you can use one of the four entry points along the coast, at Resö, Rossö, Saltö/Tjärno and Strömstad. There you will find information which will help you get the most out of the park. The main entrance is at Naturum, on South Koster. Explore the show room or join a guided tour, it is free and open all year. 

To do

At Naturum you can watch a film, take part of audioguides in various languages and also touch some of the inhabitants on the sea bed in their aquarium. During summer there are also guided tours on the beach where you will learn a lot about all the small creatures that live here. Another way of exploring the sea is to go snorkling. On South Koster, Rörvik and Saltö there are snorkeling trails - paths with information posts under water!

Time for a break

Having spent the day exploring and discovering you will need to take a break and get something to eat. There are many nice alternatives in the Koster Islands. Cars are prohibited here so walking or renting a bike are the best ways of getting around. If you are planning on spending the night there are hotels, apartments and hostels to choose from. Note that summer is a busy period and that reservation is necessary at this time.



Strömstad is the most western city in Sweden and was declared a city in 1676. With its location by the sea, the proximity to Norway and with great international communications within a couple of hours, Strömstad is a living and thriving place to be. The main industry is tourism, predominantely Norwegians. But the archipelago, many great places to visit nearby, the shopping and the people are some of the reasons that more and more people from all over the world come to visit us.

Strömstad is a great base for exploring the surroundings. One of the places of interest that the locals are especially proud of is the Koster Marine National park. Inaugurated in 2009 by the Swedish king, it is together with Alaska, and Furholmen, examples of islands well worth a visit. If you choose to stay in the city centre you can explore the cuisine in one of many restaurantes, go to the beach or maybe just sit down at a café and just be?


All year round

It is understandable that many relate the West Coast with summer as it is the time of the year when all the tiny fishing villages bloom and awakens after the cold winter months. But Strömstad has so much more to offer. Of course, the activities are not the same in winter, which is part of the charm. In the old days Strömstad used to be a well known spa town, a tradition that is now coming back to life. Swimming pools, spas and saunas, all located by the sea, is a perfect reason to come and visit us!


In nature

If you love nature and being outdoors, Strömstad is a great option. Fishing lobster is an important tradition and if you would like to see how it is done, join a local fisherman! A nice walk in the forest is a perfect way to wind down. Put on some warm clothes, bring a thermos and set out for your own adventure! Many of the trails offer wind shields and even barbeque facilities. If you are into paddling we recommend coming in autumn. Gliding between small islets in the fresh and crispy air is an unforgettable experience. Nature is amazing so enjoy and take well care of it!

And still today the fishing is an important part of the region´s economy, but maybe more so for its history and culture. The coast is dotted with tiny fishing villages where time seems to have stood still.
