WALKING

Smögen has a lot to offer. To see the monumental art light in this environment is magnificent, but don’t miss out to experience the island at daytime as well. There are several really nice walking trails to enjoy. The old fishing village with the boardwalk and boathouses are most picturesque, but there are more to find out.

1. The old fishing village
Join a guided tour along the boardwalk, with boat houses and the cottages built by the fishermen. Take part of a local, historical perspective.

3. Hästen – Nature and historial walk
Hästen is the peninsula at the west part of Smögen. This is also called the Dutchmen’s rocks. Leavings from the 16th century (This was before Smögen was an habitat) have been found in this area. Dutchmen came to the archipelago to fish herring in periods and it seems they built temporary settlements here.
