Åstol is a very striking sight. The unique rocky island looks as if it has been thrust out of Västerhavet, complete with a mass of white wooden houses which appear to cover almost the entire island. Its bedrock consists of smoothly eroded amphibolite, a volcanic rock type, on which plants have managed to grow in small valleys despite the harsh conditions here. The light from the surrounding sea and the sense of calm gives the whole island a very special atmosphere. The narrow, car-free streets meander between the houses and in the middle of the island there is a lush little park with a memorial to lost fishermen. A couple of hours are enough to get around the island, enjoying the beautiful views, the boathouses and the rocks. Take a dipp at Klockareudden a natural rock pool filled with salt-water, a water slide and a sandy bottom. Pater Nosterskären to the west can be seen from the water tower on Store Varn, and Carlstens Fortress can be seen on Marstrand, to the south.
Come along on a historical archipelago tour in Uddevalla. From our boat m/s Sunningen you will enjoy the beautiful views of the beachpromenade – a wooden footbridge along the mountainside above the water, Gustafsberg – Swedens oldest seaside resort and the magnificent Uddevalla bridge. Do the whole tour or get off at a wharf for a salty swim.
M/s Sunningen will take you out on a historical journey out on the fjord. With Uddevallas city arms in the prow and spaces on deck or in its light and airy salon she offers a cozy boat ride.

Swedens oldest seaside resort. Beautifully landscaped park overlooked by stunning turn of the century villas studded with fantastic craftsmanship. There are two restaurants in the area and an ice-cream parlor for the warm summer days. It offers a good beach area but also a lido if you wish to avoid the jellyfish and the seagrass. There is also a kayak store with a activity barn for group activities.
One of the most popular seaside resorts with its shallow beach and perfect crab fishing pier. The restaurant Villa Lindesnäs situated on a cliff right by the wharf offers home cooked food with an outstandingly beautiful view of the fjord.

This camping resort offers spaces for static caravans, tents, ordinary caravans and campervans. There is a sandy beach, waterslide, crazy golf and a playpark for the youngest. You will also find a café and an ice-cream parlor.

Vad vore en sommar i Bohuslän utan en dagskryssning med en skärgårdsbåt? Vi har kört dagslånga kryssningar från Uddevalla via Henån till Käringön sedan 1968. Varpå vi påstår att vi är bra på detta!
Häng med på ett äventyr på Bohusläns salta vatten. Spendera en dag på havet ombord vårt moderfartyg m/s Byfjorden. Hitta en plats ute eller inne på båten så serverar vi dig god mat och berättar om vad som passeras och beskådas. Detta kallar vi valuta för pengarna!
Sommaren 2019 återupptar vi Åstol som destination, måndagar blir dagen man kan komma till denna unika ö under juli månad. Självklart trafikerar vi fler unika öar som Käringön, vilket vi gjort varje sommar i 50 år nu. Även Basshomen och Smögen är favoritplatser vi återkommer till eller upptäck Lysekil ihop med oss och gör ett besök på havsakvariet Havets Hus.
Mat är en del av upplevelsen
Lika många fascineras över det goda kaffet och den goda maten som vår skeppskock tillagar ombord. På våra dagskryssningar serveras dagens rätt och självklart finns det ett vegitariskt alternativ om så önskas. Har man barn i sitt sällskap kan dessa skämmas bort med pannkakor i stora lass med glass. Kan en dag på havet bli bättre?
Bra att veta!
