Almedal to Saltholmen to Brännö
Since a few weeks, we were thinking of going on one of the islands of the South Archipelagos near Gothenburg so Saturday 9th April we finally went on one. It took some time to go from where we live, Almedal, to the place to take the ferry in Saltholmen (Tram 11, terminus). It took us around 1 hour to get there and 20 more minutes to arrive on the island, Brännö (282 or 283).
The ferry is really smooth and take the passengers from one island to the other. It’s part of the västtrafik service so if you have a tram card you don’t have to pay a ticket. We arrived in Brännö and walked for some time and admire the calm and beauty of the island, we followed the map (available on board) until a point of view on top of a hill. We had a 360° view.
We went back and walked to the harbor and searched for a café but sadly all the café and restaurant will not open until the touristic season. It’s better to bring water and a snack with you if you go there.
The day was just perfect, bright sun, blue sky and so little wind. The island Brännö was small, cosy, quiet and beautiful. We will have to visit again some more Archipelagos !
