Gullmarsstrand Hotel & Conference is situated along a long jetty overlooking the islands and bays of the fjord Gullmarsfjorden – Swedens only real fjord. Our unique location by the sea creates a sense of absolute tranquility and presence, regardless of season or weather.
Right in the middle of this idyllic place, on the west coast, lies a charming small island – Skaftö. Skaftö is part of Lysekil municipality with a nice archipelago outside, protected from the ocean waves.
This fishing community came up to be during the 18th century and during the “herring period” and it meant an economic upturn for the community. The settlement was on the coastline and the old restaurant has always been the starting point where Gullmarsstrand Hotel & Conference now is.
