This 7 days / 6 nights self drive tour starts from the capital of Sweden, Stockholm and ends to Gothenburg. You can do this vice versa or add extra nights at any point. Drive from Stockholm to a picturesque and idyllic little town of Trosa and spend an overnight in Trosa Stadshotell. After Trosa continue to Aspa which is half way between Stockholm and Gothenburg. Aspa Herrgard is set in a peaceful hamlet dating back to 17th century. The hotel is known for its exceptional culinary standards. The last two nights are spent in Gothenburg, which lies in the west coast of Sweden. In the past decade, the city has gone from nowhere to being cited as one of Northern Europe’s most exciting culinary destinations.
You will return home refreshed with lots of amazing memories and perhaps a couple of pounds extra around the waistline!

Day at leisure in Gothenburg
Gothenburg today has a number of world class restaurants of different styles, all well worth a long detour even for the most discriminating gourmet. Many of the menus are, not surprisingly, especially strong on the west coast’s precious delicacies – fish and shellfish from the north Atlantic, full of flavour from maturing slowly in cold waters.
