The Edible Country at Ramsvik
Visit Sweden has placed tables in some of Sweden’s most scenic spots. One of the tables stands on Ramsvik, in Tångevik, which is the northernmost spot on the island. The table can be reached via a 15 minute walk heading north from the reception at Ramsvik Stugby & Camping. Anyone is welcome to use the table to enjoy a lovely al fresco lunch, afternoon coffee, or why not dinner at sunset? Welcome to Sweden, the edible country.

TIPS - If you want to make your visit extra special we recommend the following:
Bring fresh seafood with you Buy a bag of freshly cooked prawns or langoustines to eat at the Table. Try either of the following fish shops: Fiskaffären in Hunnebostrand (Norra Strandgatan 7, by the harbour) or Göstas Fisk in Smögen (Fiskhamnsgatan 32, by the Smögen Boardwalk). Both are approximately 10 km from Ramsvik.
Go on a fishing trip Join professional fishermen Tommy and Martin from Smögen’s Fiske & Skärgårdsturer on a 4 hour fishing trip (starting at their boathouse, Sälebådsvägen 33 in Smögen). The boat takes a maximum of 12 people and their most usual catches are mackerel, cod, saithe and whiting. You’ll get a lovely tour in Bohuslän’s beautiful archipelago and might even spot seals. (NB! Must be pre-booked!) fisketur.se
Hike on Ramsvik The whole of Ramsvikslandet, also known as the Kingdom of the Rocks, is a nature reserve with fantastic hiking possibilities. A walk around the island takes around two to three hours and one of the paths goes right by the Table. A map of the different trails can be picked up in the reception at Ramsvik Stugby & Camping.
Stay at Ramsvik Don’t stress unnecessarily. Ramsvik Stugby & Camping has plenty of cosy cabins sleeping 2–7 people. Read more about our accommodation here
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN TABLE BOOKERS ARRIVE AT RAMSVIK? Park at Ramsvik Stugby & Camping. Pay in reception then collect your cooking kit and ingredients basket. You’ll also be given instructions on how to get to the table, which is a 15 minute walk from the campsite. When you get there it’s up to you how you arrange things. We suggest taking a short walk to get a feel for the lovely surroundings. Take the opportunity to sunbathe, swim, fish crabs direct from the rocks and just enjoy the stunning view of the archipelago. Before 18.00 pack up everything you’ve brought with you (and check that you haven’t left any rubbish behind) and wander back to the campsite, where you’ll return the cooking kit.
