Volvo Ocean Race

Welcome to Gothenburg!

Gothenburg is a port city, where the sea is a constant presence and the waterways lead right into the centre of the City. This enables you to follow the boats in the race in a totally unique way from anywhere along the harbour mouth into Volvo’s own home town. You are never far from unrivalled shopping, world-class restaurants and exciting happenings – or from the simple, laid-back lifestyle of the islands. There is always something new to discover, yet it feels just like home.
