If you feel like experiencing something more, on top of what Stocken Camping can offer, we are a good starting point for various excursions. For more tips and information, ask our staff or visit our little red Info-pointcabin by the reception.
Käringön, Gullholmen and Hermanö are beautiful islands that are well worth a visit. The easiest way to get to the ferry location in Tuvesvik, 5 km from the campsite, is by car or bike. Bikes are available for rent at the golf kiosk.
Why not take an islandtrip over to Evert Taube’s Malö, Handelsmans Flink on Flatön and Ängön? (Evert Taube was and still is, a most respected swedish composer/troubadour). Driving up the Bohus coast along these charming island summerroads, only to be interrupted by smaller car ferries, is definitely to be preferred than hurrying along the main roads.
Golfplayers may want to visit Orust Golf Club, in Morlanda. It is a seaside course set in amazing surroundings with a tremendous seaview. After golf it is possible to enjoy a delicious lunch or coffee at their restaurant.
A day trip to Gothenburg is a given for anyone who enjoys the westcoast citylife and its many features, combined perhaps with a visit to Liseberg, the amusement park that has been around since 1923.
Charming, old fishing villages up and down the westcoast are popular destinations, for example here on Orust: Hälleviksstrand with its beautiful red wooden church, or Mollösund where you walk among old quaint houses on narrow streets and buy fresh fish and seafood from the fishmongers in the small harbour.
In Klädesholmen, on Tjörn, you can visit the Herringmuseum, and learn more about the history of herringfishing.
A day spent on Tjörn, to for instance visit the outdoor Pilane Sculpture Park – don’t forget to bring your picnicbasket, and the Nordic Watercolour Museum in Skärholmen, is a day well spent.
At Havets Hus, the saltwater aquarium in Lysekil, you get to learn a lot about life and environment in the western sea.
Nordens Ark in Hunnebostrand is another popular attraction – a zoological garden focused on among other things conservation of endangered species.
If you feel like testing your sea legs, you should book yourself in on an archipelago-tour or sealsafari.
