Can you already see yourself driving a motorhome through the varied landscape of Sweden? Then we've put together a great motorhome trip for you.

Gothenburg - the start of your motorhome trip of Sweden

We'll start the motorhome trip in Gothenburg, Sweden's second-largest city! This is a city where culinary aficionados can get their fill. Over the years Gothenburg has developed into an important commercial fishing center. Because of its location on the west coast of Sweden, the best fish is caught here every day. There is no better place to taste this freshly caught fish than at the local fish market or in one of Gothenburg's restaurants. You will also be amazed by the locals. They are extremely hospitable here! Although Gothenburg is only a small city you can wander around for hours. From culture, high quality restaurants to beautiful nature. You can find it all in this Swedish city. Because the city is small you can discover everything on foot. Stroll in the district of Haga and admire the wooden worker houses. These were built between 1870 and 1940. Don't forget to taste a cinnamon bun. This Swedish delicacy is the delicacy of the city. To take a break, you should be in the Slottsskogen park. This is a natural forest full of colorful flowers. In the summer various events are organized here.
