From Kungshamn/Smögen, we drove east towards Lidköping. We stayed nearby at the Kinnekulle campground on Lake Vänern. The lake is the largest in Sweden & apparently in the EU.
This time we did a better job of taking pictures at the campsite. We arrived & got our tents set-up right before an afternoon rain shower.
Here was our set-up at every campground. The big blue tent was our sleeping tent & the grey tent was for our table, chairs & food (dining/living tent). We weren’t exactly roughing it at any of the campgrounds. We had electricity hook-ups, which enabled us to blow up our queen-size air mattress & charge our electronics.
Waiting out the rain. We learned that the grey tent was not completely waterproof. Christian rigged up the umbrella to keep some of the drips out!
A few steps from our tent was a dock for swimming in the lake.
Kinnekulle is actually a hill or “flowering mountain” and we decided to hike a portion of the vandringsled (walking trail) around the area. We hiked to the highest point & went up in the viewing tower.
On the way back to the campground, we came across Hellekis Säteri (manor). There was a sign in the entrance that said private, so we didn’t explore much. There was a café on the grounds, as well as some gardens. It was very pretty.
