Regular boat traffic operates year-round to the country's western inhabited islands, most of which are nature reserves. During the summer, boats also run from Daftö's pier to Koster. The islands offer excellent hiking opportunities along trails, with marked paths on both islands. The islands are large enough to be explored on foot, and in the summertime, it's never far to take a salty dip in the sea. Learn more about hiking on Nordkoster via the link below.
