Visit the city of Gothenburg and combine it with a couple of nights off the West coast of Sweden staying at Pater Noster lighthouse.

Pater Noster is a lighthouse located on Hamneskär Island off the west coast of Sweden, near the town of Marstrand. The lighthouse was built in 1868 and was in operation until 1977 when it was automated. In 2009, it was turned into a unique hotel which is now a popular destination for travellers seeking a unique and remote experience.

The summer months of June, July, and August are the most popular for tourism because the weather is warm and pleasant, with temperatures averaging around 20-25°C (68-77°F). This is a great time to enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, swimming, and kayaking, and to explore the islands along the Bohuslän coast.

If you are interested in seafood, then the autumn months of September and October are a great time to visit. This is when the region’s famous lobster season begins, and you can enjoy delicious fresh seafood dishes in local restaurants.
