Walk the beautiful Island of Hönö with Sarah

  • Offered in English, Swedish
  • Hönö, Gothenburg's northen archipelago
Have a walk with me around magnificent Hönö, in Gothenburg’s northern archipelago. We can decide together how long and what level of difficulty the walk will be. A shorter walk down to the harbour (where you’ll find shops, cafes and the Fish Museum) or a longer tour through Ersdalen nature reserve with its beautiful woods and barren rocks. I swim year round so bring a swimsuit if you’re feeling brave… If you fall in love with the island and want to stay longer, you can rent the top floor in our house through Airbnb. There are also bikes to rent at the harbour so you can easily explore the other islands in the archipelago.

About Your Host, Sarah

My name is Sarah Lycksten and I moved back to my family home on Hönö seven years ago. In my renovated barn on the property, I run an art gallery and give classes in old-fashion photography techniques. When I’m not taking pictures, I’m digging in the garden, hanging out with my chickens or doing carpentry.

Who this is for

We can adapt the walk so it’s suitable for everyone. The archipelago is beautiful all year but it’s often quite windy so bring some warm clothes and comfortable shoes! If you’re feeling brave, bring a swimsuit. I swim year round…


My schedule varies so both weekdays and weekends can work. Just not too late in the evening. A short walk can take an hour whereas the longer version is about three hours.


From Gothenburg City you can easily take the bus to Hönö. It takes about 1 hour. The bus will drive on the ferry that will take you the last part to the island of Hönö.
