Save on your hotel -

Björkö, or Birchisland(a direct translation could be the island with trees), where mentioned already in the icelandic sagas.

This island where also mentioned in the icelandic sagas as a place where a lot of meetings took place between kings and lords around kattegatt. To this place you either take the car to Lilla Varholmen, park here and then go on the Björkö ferry for free. You could also take your car with you and then park it in the ferry stop on Björkö or park it near the harbour just a couple of kilometers away. Another option is take the bus from Gothenburg and then jump of by Lilla varholmen for the ferry. See more on>>>
