One of the most rewarding parts of travel is when you get to partake in other culture’s traditions that differ from the ones you know from back home. Until preparing for this road trip around Sweden with Volvo I had never heard of Midsummer before. I would soon come to learn it is the 2nd most important holiday for the Swedes after Christmas.

Enjoy a taco fiesta in Borås, stay the night in the archipelago or share a ride to the wilderness of Nordens Ark. It is easier than you think to get close to the daily life in West Sweden. Here you can meet locals eager to share everything from their favorite hiking trails to cooking skills or a simple cup of coffee. We have also gathered inspiring stories and a few things to keep in mind if you are new to the sharing economy and want to learn more. Take the opportunity to explore the Swedish lifestyle from a local perspective.
What makes West Sweden unique is its distinctly Nordic culture, and rugged coastal landscape. Also, the wind — both times I’ve been to the coast, a strong wind has been blowing. In my writing elsewhere, that detail has provided me with a lot of inspiration.
Volvo Overseas Delivery is by far the best way to buy a car. Matt and I are heading to West Sweden, and exploring Gothenburg and the surrounding area all the way to Göta Kanal with a brand new Volvo XC90 Inscription for over a week starting next week. This trip is done in a partnership with Visit Sweden, West Sweden and Gothenburg tourism boards, and with Scandinavian Airlines and Volvo.
