During the Island of Light Festival we offer a tour with fantastic water views of the light art pieces, in open-view boats. The tour is guided in English, German and Swedish. The route will be the Smögen harbour area and rounding Smögen Island to Vallevik on west side, where there is a fantastic light and sound installation.

During the tour you will experience unique visual sights, with the ocean reflecting the light from the various art installations, enhancing the overall experience. You have good photo opportunities as we come close to the light art pieces. Possibly, a couple of the light artists will come along on some tours, enlighting you further about the art pieces.

The tours are a collaboration between Island Light Festival, Zitabåtarna, Hållöexpressen and the Guides of Bohuslän. The tour takes an hour and starts and ends at the Smögen fish auction.
