Add To Plan

Take a local ferry over to the gorgeous village of Fiskebäckskil for a tour of its inspiring landmarks, followed by free time to explore further.

Depart from the pier and enjoy a short drive to Lysekil’s city center, where you will board a ferry for the island of Skaftö. Before long, you will arrive in the former fishing village of Fiskebäckskil and begin walking through the wonderfully compact town.

It’s one of the most attractive areas in the Bohuslän archipelago and is especially known for its colorful old wooden houses with intricately carved porches. The village’s church dates from 1772 and has an almost opulent feel, especially for such as out-of-the-way locale. Eighteenth-century murals cover the church’s barrel-vaulted ceiling, and a gold-plated weathercock tops the wrought iron and sheet-metal spire.

You will also see the elegant home of Fiskebäckskil-born artist Carl Wilhelmson, whose powerful portraits and landscapes earned him the status of being one of Sweden’s most respected artists. Many of his paintings hang in the National Museum in Stockholm.

Following the guided tour, you will have time to explore on your own, strolling about the areas you find most appealing. Because of the bountiful seafood in the surrounding waters, Fiskebackskil boasts numerous fine restaurants serving Swedish dishes that feature herring, cod and shrimp. After free time, you will retrace your route by ferry and then drive back to the ship.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 1-hour of walking, plus any additional walking at the guests’ discretion during free time. There is a small climb to reach the church. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Weather appropriate clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
