This fully revised second edition of Bradt's West Sweden remains the most comprehensive - and only standalone - guidebook to this enchanting region. In the first dedicated guidebook, Bradt's West Sweden reveals the staggering variety of the area's experiences, including a chapter on Gothenburg and a section on the region's history and culture, and offers detailed maps of both the coastline and the cities. New for this edition are sections on Top 10 'must do' and Top 6 Wild Swimming spots, new road trip suggestions and new coverage of Borås, thje region's second largest municipality. The author, James Proctor, has written Bradt guides to Lapland and the Faroe Islands and has visited Scandinavia annually for over 30 years. Centrally located within Scandinavia, west Sweden is quickly developing as a vibrant tourist location and continues to attract an increasing number of visitors. With a bewildering array of over 8,000 islands, endless meadows of wild flowers and the lively and cosmopolitan coastal city of Gothenburg, west Sweden perfectly encapsulates both the rugged beauty and urban delights Scandinavia has to offer.

He's been back and forth ever since and currently spends several months every year in Sweden. Specialising in the Nordic countries, he has written a total of six guidebooks, including one to the whole of Sweden as well as Bradt'...
