Sweden's Southwestern Archipelago

Season 2, Episode 3 of 6

In this episode, we go island hopping in the land of the Vikings. Just off of Sweden's southwestern coastline are a series of small islands dotting the north sea. We explore Marstrandson for a midsummer sun - and a midsummer celebration - that almost never ends while learning about the island's most famous and some would say beloved cross-dressing criminal, and taking a private museum tour featuring an exhibit on the incomparable Ingrid Bergman. On Styrso, the largest of the southern islands, which is considered the "main" island in this archipelago, we spend some time understanding the understated elements of Swedish hospitality. And finally, on the southern-most island of Vrango, we don't just cook the island fish... we catch it!
