The Bohuslän coast is a scenic region in western Sweden, known for its rocky terrain, idyllic fishing villages, and hundreds of offshore islands.

It is home to Sweden’s only fjord, Gullmarn or Gullmarsfjorden, located near Lysekil.

The Bohuslan coast is also known for its extensive Bronze Age rock carvings portraying images of daily life, with human figures, religious rituals, ships, circular objects, soles, animals, and fertility figures.

The most famous of these rock carvings are in Tanumshede, and are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
