Klädesholmen


A windswept Klädesholmen in the distance. As many of the small island villages it is today mainly summer houses. It is believed to date back to the 1200 when the Norwegian king Håkon Håkonsson established many communities around Viken. Viken is an old name for Bohuslän and the coastline up to Oslo. There is a theory that the name for Vikings originates from this area.

Wind power, ha de Gött!
