"Käringön: best place to celebrate a half century" Käringön by Trekki

Käringön Travel Guide: 17 reviews and 102 photos

Well, what can I say? I have known about this island for ages, through VT. And I was overly excited and happy when, on the morning of the occasion of me being on this planet for half a century, I found a lovely box in front of my tent, including an invitation to this cute island and, moreover, including dinner at the best Swedish restaurant which happens to be on this island. It rained, but that didn?t take the fun out of this day and evening. It was a long evening ?.. and we almost missed the ferry back, lol.

Thank you sweet Simone and Åke for making this day so extra special!!!!

      Oh yes, indeed!! If you can manage - go there, it is my most favourite little spot on the west coast!

    I wish we had more car-free islands around here. The ones we do have are impossible to get to unless you own your own boat. Some are privately owned.

    I now want to visit Sweden. Before I never even considered it.

    Meal from Peterson's Krog looks really beautiful and seems to be delicious enough for your birthday gift! So I guess it was easy to be late for a ferry while having Irish coffee with such a pleasant company, haha! Have a nice weekend, Ingrid!

    What a wonderful way to celebrate half a century! The restaurant certainly seems to be very special.

    There's nothing like combining good food and good friends for a special occasion - put that together with a different and interesting place, and it's an unbeatable combination. Thank you for sharing your lovely birthday celebration.
