Optional sightseeing 

Finish your stay in Gothenburg with a 2.5 hour long guided boat tour through the beautiful archipelago surrounding Gothenburg.

M/S Carl Michael Bellman is a modern and comfortable archipelago boat. You get a nice view nice view of the surroundings from the big windows in the bright and spacious dining room. There is an accessible toilet on the boat. Unfortunately the boat is not accessible for electric wheelchairs, as the ramp is too steep.

The tour is € 30 per person, and you pay upon arrival at the hotel. A Swedish fika – coffee and something sweet – is included in the price. There’s a bar, if you’d like to buy something else to drink.

We get on and off the boat at Lilla bommen, about 1 kilometre from the hotel.
