Our comfortable Boathouse Cottages are within 100 metres of the sea and built in traditional Bohuslän style. The cottages have sleeping lofts with 2-5 beds, depending on the size of the cottage, WC, hand basin and a combined living area/kitchen downstairs.

The number of students in each cottage depends on how many there is room for in the sleeping loft, i.e. 2-5 in each. We divide the group between several cottages located next to each other. Teachers and any accompanying adults stay in cottages adjacent to those occupied by the students.

Visit Nordens Ark

Nordens Ark is a park for animal species threatened by extinction and home to an amazing Amur tiger, snow leopards and wolves. Why not book a guided tour with one of the animal carers? You get close to the animals and can ask as many questions as you like.

Visit Havets Hus

Havets Hus in Lysekil is a popular indoor aquarium, based around research into life in the North Sea. To get as much as possible out of your visit, why not book a guided tour.


There is a volleyball net on the beach, balls are available from reception.

Sauna & Swimming

The most popular activity among the students is nearly always taking a sauna, then jumping off the pier into the water. It seems most children and teenagers can do this for hours!

We can organise around an hour of activities, with fun games and amusing competitions on the beach. You can also organise your own games and competitions. Team games like tug of war, relay races and water sports are usually popular.

Quiz Walk

The holiday village is surrounded by a beautiful nature reserve. We have marked out a 4-kilometre long walking trail that runs through the reserve and back again. Along the trail we have erected 12 wooden boards that can be used for posting quiz questions. A quiz walk through the nature reserve is an activity that suits everyone. It is also entirely free of charge if you put together your own questions and put them out. We can provide answer sheets for free. Why not bring a picnic?

The nearest village is Hunnebostrand. If you travel by train, with SJ, Hunnebostrand should be your destination. The nearest stop is Ramsviksvägen. From there, it’s a 4-kilometre long, beautiful walk to the holiday village. We collect your luggage to save you carrying.

There is a bus service from Gothenburg which stops at Ramsviksvägen. For timetables, please visit Västtrafik’s website.

If you bring your own coach to Ramsvik, parking is available a few hundred metres from the holiday village. The coach driver stays at the same low price as the children, but is given a private cottage. The driver also pays the same prices for food as the students.


The ocean environment

An appropriate theme for a residential school trip to Ramsvik is obviously the ocean environment. Ramsvik is surrounded by water and perfect for studying themes like the origin of life in the sea, the effect of the last glacial period on the natural landscape, or the impact humans have had on the coastal environment in Bohuslän, due to for example stonemasonry and fishing.

Geology in the natural landscape

Ramsvikslandets nature reserve, the ‘Kingdom of Rocks’, is the perfect place to learn about geology and the history of our natural landscape. Students can identify different types of rocks and learn about their characteristics and history. The entire landscape has been formed and sculpted by the last glacial period, which has left traces everywhere you look. Ramsvikslandet also has some of the most interesting examples of so called giant’s cauldrons found anywhere in Sweden.


The nature reserve at Ramsvik is an amazing place, with a wide range of different biotopes and ecosystems within a small area. There are flat rocks that look barren and sterile at first glance, but are home to several interesting species of lichen and other plants. There are fir forests, rocky beaches, and shingle. In nearby Haby, the ground consists of shell banks, which offer a unique environment where many rare plants flourish. This area is also popular with birdwatchers, due to its wealth of seabirds and waders.

Stonemasonry – are there wolves at Ramsvik?

Ramsvik was an important centre for the stonemason industry in Bohuslän. Everywhere you look, there are traces of this heavy industry, which had its heyday in the early part of the 20th century. Nearby Hunnebostrand has a Stonemason Museum with knowledgeable guides who can explain the rise and fall of the stonemason industry. They will also tell you why there are wolves in many of the gardens in this area…


In September, the skies are dark and the stars are often clearly visible. Just outside the holiday village is a hill that is particularly suitable for stargazing. There is no light pollution here, which makes it possible to see huge numbers of stars and astronomical objects. Each year, the Birger Sjöberggymnasiet School holds an astronomy lesson after dark. They bring binoculars, telescopes, torches with red screens, and a map of the constellations in the sky. Their eyes soon adjust to the low light and the students quickly learn to locate the Andromeda galaxy and other interesting bodies not normally visible to the naked eye.
