Secret Sweden: island hopping on the west coast.

NNorman Miller takes the ferry from Gothenburg to some of the lesser-known isles of the vast Bohuslan archipelago. Shading my eyes from the bright northern sun glinting off a blue- mirror sea, I gaze enviously at Ingrid Bergman’s old retreat a stone’s throw to port as we cruise past the tiny island of Dannholmen. It is pleasingly simple for a Hollywood legend — a green clapboard cottage set amid sensuously undulating boulders, its only mark of ostentation is the sculpture of a giant bronze bird with wings spread towards a seascape dotted with islands to the far horizon.

While the bird isn’t going anywhere, we glide on through the Bohuslan archipelago. About 8,000 islands and skerries rise here from the cool waters of the Skagerrak, rocky confetti scattered up Sweden’s west coast from the hip city of Gothenburg to the Norwegian border always dotted with small islands.
