Archipelago island


A serene island perfect for a day on the beach.

This island in the southern part of the archipelago has around 450 inhabitants and picturesque settlements. Walk around the uninhabited parts of the island to the scenic view at the top of Valen hill or to Kvistevik bathing area.

On Asperö you’ll find excellent walking and jogging trails and from the mountain Valen, you have a splendid view over the port of Gothenburg. There is a kiosk at the quay and a small supermarket on the island. Don’t miss the small museum about Asperös history located close to the ferry quay.

All the islands in the southern part of the archipelago are car-free. However, you can reach Asperö in ten minutes with the public transport ferry leaving from Saltholmen.

Across from Asperö the tiny island Rivö is located. You can’t reach the island with public ferries, but during the summer kayak visitors enjoy the nature on the island.
