One of the most classic Valentine’s Day-gifts to give your loved ones are delicious chocolate. Why not take it a step further this year and think outside of the chocolate box? At Storm & Bille, tastings and guided tours of the chocolate factory are held every Wednesday from January 10 to March 6. The tour, in English, begins with a sampling of Storm & Bille’s tasty homemade hot chocolate, which is followed by a guided tour of the factory with a step-by-step account of the chocolate production process. The tour then concludes with a tasting of all their varieties of chocolate.

Get a taste of the West Coast winter wonder idyll on a tour of the archipelago with Kastor Boat Trips, which departs from Hönö Klåva in the northern archipelago.

Craving even more of the romantic West Coast idyll? In the southern archipelago, at the picturesque hotel Kajkanten Vrångö, they offer Kajkanten’s Cold bath package, which includes, among other things, a wood-burning sauna, hot tub, sea bathing on Kajkanten’s floating sauna, lodging in a cosy boathouse, and seafood box delivered directly from Hamnkrogen Lotsen. In other words, a true West Coast Valentine’s Day experience!

alentine’s Day doesn’t necessarily soley evolve around roses and chocolate. For those who are less keen on stereotypical romantic activities and more interested in insightful cultural experiences, the Gothenburg Museum of Art is showing The Wonderful Colour, and the Röhsska Museum textile works in the exhibition Let a Hundred Flowers Bloom.
