Ramsvik, West Sweden

The south-west part of Sweden is all about stunning archipelagos with thousands of tiny islands. Fishing traditions are well known in these parts and the seafood is plentiful: 90% of Sweden’s oysters originate here, and along with shrimp, crayfish, mussels, and lobsters, they make up the 'big five'.

The table is located at Ramsvikslandet, a nature reserve known for its hiking trails, with vast cliffs and stunning sea views and only 11 km by car from fishing village Smögen and 1,5 hours north of Gothenburg.

Besides the fine do-it-yourself dining at The Edible Country, you won’t be short of adventures in West Sweden. The region has a number of nature reserves, walking paths, kayaking and cycling trails. As well as food and drink experiences. Read more about the table, add-ons and activities in West Sweden.
