Conference or celebration?


When you get off the boat, there are a lot of impressions. The magnificent sea, the small harbor with fishing boats surrounded by picturesque houses. Soon a nice feeling settles in your body and you realize that a couple of days here will do you good. A warm welcome to the dramatic outer archipelago and the genuine fishing community Käringön. A varied range of activities is offered here. Everything from culture to adventure. Inside or outside. On land or out at sea.

Getting to Käringön

Västtrafik's ferries depart from Tuvesvik in Orust. The boat trip takes about 35 minutes and offers beautiful views of the archipelago islands. If you are a larger group, the ferry is the best option. If you are looking for a more efficient means of transport, a boat taxi from Hälleviksstrand is recommended. The trip by boat taxi takes about ten minutes. We will be happy to help you with the planning.

After only a few hours on the island, I understood what my colleagues had been waxing lyrical about. That this was not just another course or spa facility but a genuine place with experiences for all the senses.

The fact that it had rained and stormed when we went out with the boat no longer felt like a problem, it was actually part of the charm. In addition, the forecast promised a change of weather towards the evening. The rapidly changing weather takes getting used to out here, as we were told by one of the islanders we met on the pier.


The pace before the height of summer is calm, and allows you to feel at ease. Time for both reflection and enjoyment, just what our management team needs. Finally, even my own stressed out body understands that we have actually left the office and are on the outer rim of the archipelago.

The buildings that we walk around are picturesque and time seems to have almost stood still here. Meeting some of the permanent residents of the island who guide us around, strangely reinforces the feeling of being in another, bygone era. Many of the stories we hear are about the sea and fishing. Fortunately, some families still engage in small-scale fishing. The seafood must be among the best available. Dinner will certainly be something to look forward to.

On the way back to the hotel we stop at the port, where a school class from Orust is fishing for crabs. Is there anything more fun than that? Käringön would really be a nice destination for my sister and her family.

I certainly do not regret that my colleagues succeeded in convincing me to spend a couple of days out here. The journey back to the office still feels wonderfully distant.
