Get in shape in Uddevalla! This summer in Uddevalla will be one of the most active ever. Do you enjoy competing and challenging yourself or are you a dedicated supporter? Take an extra look at this year's selection of recreational races. There are nine different competitions and races gathered under the term Challenger Uddevalla. Everything from swimrun and obstacle races along the edge of the coast line, to mountain bike races and triathlon. Our unique position and Bohuslän's beautiful countryside contribute to the overall experience, regardless of whether you are taking part or cheering on. A more peaceful wildlife experience can be obtained from a visit to the shell banks in central Uddevalla. The fact is that it is one of the largest shell banks in the world, a unique area with its hills of shell gravel, where flowers and butterflies proliferate in spring and summer. More tips about trips, food, culture and entertainment can be found in our events calendar on The tips include Uddevalla's recurring music festival Uddevalla Solid Sound and the new theatre piece Varvsspelen, which takes a historic look back at the days of Uddevalla's shipyards. But what is a place without its locals? In this magazine you can read about people who are living their dreams, who have international careers with home city as their base or who have become "returners" and fallen in love with the place again.

The sea attracts professional handball players back to Uddevalla

MIKAEL MISSES THE SEA "Heidelberg is a wonderful, old university town but there isn't any sea here", says Mikael. "I miss that proximity to the ocean that is so central to Uddevalla. It is a luxury to live amongst the cliffs and seawater. Being able to take the boat out to sea and stop off for a swim and a barbecue. That is one of the things that I really appreciate when I am back home.   It is nearly eight years since Mikael left Kroppskultur and Uddevalla to play for IFK Skövde. "I really enjoyed my time at Kroppskultur, we had a lot of fun and there was a really good atmosphere. The club didn't split the teams early as a lot of clubs do, the focus was much more on team spirit and enjoying the game," says Mikael. The fact that Mikael became a goalkeeper was down to the fact that he wasn't scared of the ball and dared to try the position. He also showed great talent. Like Johanna, he went to a handball high school, but in his hometown, what is now called Uddevalla Elitidrottsgymnasium.

RUNNING IN THE UDDEVALLA FORESTS Both Mikael and Johanna have spent many hours of pre-season training running in the forests around Uddevalla. In particular they mention the Egonspåret and the trail along Bjursjön.

Sweden that he has noticed is the value of the Swedish right of public access.

» It is beautiful at Bjursjön and it is a perfect training environment «

APPRECIATES THE RIGHT OF PUBLIC ACCESS "When I am home I am often out in nature for one reason or another. "The intention of this right is very good, nature becomes accessible to everyone," says Mikael. Each time he comes home he tries to squeeze in a visit to his favourite street food place, Charlie Chaplin at Uddevalla's travel centre Kampenhof. "They have the world's best kebab sauce", states Mikael.

"It is beautiful at Bjursjön and it is a perfect training environment. After a run through the woods, one can do some weight training in the new outdoor gym and then finish off with a refreshing dip in Bjursjön", suggests Mikael, who also does a lot of mountain biking in the forest.   Mikael has a tight schedule and only has time to visit Uddevalla a few times a year. One difference between Germany and

VISITS HIS FAVOURITE HIDEAWAYS Both Mikael and Johanna can imagine returning to Uddevalla to live when they have ended their handball careers. "Uddevalla is really pleasant and the ideal size for a town to live in if you want to start a family," says Mikael. "When I visit my Mum and friends in Uddevalla I notice that I miss the place. It is relaxed and close to most things here, not least the sea", thinks Johanna.

International goalkeepers Johanna Bundsen and Mikael Appelgren are at full flight in their respective professional careers. But when they eventually hang up their playing kit they can both imagine moving back to the town where they grew up and which formed the foundation for their handball careers. Johanna and Mikael have spent innumerable hours in Agnebergshallen, training and playing matches for GF Kroppskultur – one of Uddevalla's most successful sports clubs. Both of them started handball early in life and decided to focus on goalkeeping at a young age. "You could say that I grew up in Kroppskultur. It is an excellent youth association. I only have good things to say about them," says Johanna Bundsen, who comes from a sports mad family. Her sister Kristina also plays at elite level. "I played both football and handball when I was young, but decided to focus on handball when I started 8th grade. Since then handball has been a major part of my life". I haven't had time for much more than for training and school."

PROFESSIONAL CONTRACT WITH KÖPENHAMN HANDBALL Choosing a handball high school in Partille was a natural move for Johanna. She moved to Gothenburg when she was 16 and started playing for Sävehof 's women's team. She was called into the national squad training camps as an 18 year old. Then there was a period when she was beset by injury. But Johanna was back in the National squad for the 2014 European Championships. Soon Johanna faced new challenges. After playing for Sävehof for ten years, in July 2017 she will be moving to Köpenhamn Handball club to play in the Danish league. At the same time she will be changing from having a part time job in a property company to being a full time handball player. "It will be fun to move to another city, even though I enjoy living in Gothenburg. It is a big step that feels right", she says.

INSPIRED BY EACH OTHERS' GOAL KEEPING Johanna sometimes meets up with her goalkeeper colleague Mikael Appelgren, who is two years older and also started his career at Kroppskultur and who has played for the Swedish men's team since 2011. "During the Rio Olympics last summer, various activities in common were arranged for the men's and women's teams between matches and we occasionally have training camps at the same places. It is great that things have gone so well for Mikael and me, and that we both got that foundation at Kropps­kultur. We can inspire each other with our play", says Johanna. Mikael Appelgren has played in Germany, in the Bundesliga for the Rhein-Neckar Löwen club, for several years. He is a full time handball player, lives in Heidelberg and enjoys it there.

Joakim Odelberg has an intense working life as a tv host for SVT's Mitt i naturen (Out in the wildlife) and as a photographer, film maker and lecturer on wildlife issues. That involves a lot of travel around the world and it has made him appreciate the calm and quiet of the solitude at the soldier's croft. "Because I meet so many people through my job, it is lovely to come home and just be Joakim. People in Ljungskile have known me since I was a child, so I can completely relax here", he explains.

My wife fell in love with Ljungskile After growing up in Ljungskile and then having lived in Asia for several years, Joakim Odelberg felt that he had enough of his childhood home. But when his English wife came here to visit she quickly fell in love with the natural beauty and the community. For the last few years they have lived in an old soldier's croft in the woods just outside the town.

INTERESTED IN WILDLIFE FROM THE VERY BEGINNING Joakim's interest in wildlife was awoken when he was first given a diving mask aged 3. He discovered the life below the surface of the Ljungskile archipelago and developed a lifelong fascination. As a ten year old he took his free diving exams and a few years later his dive certificate. His parents, who were also very interested in wildlife, often took him, his brother Jesper and sister Pia on adventures in the forest and on the sea. "My best childhood summers were when our whole family crammed into an old wooden motor boat with a deckhouse and pottered about the West coast for a few weeks. It was sometimes a challenge because my brother is wheelchair bound, but it was never an obstacle to my parents. PRIZE WINNING PHOTOGRAPHER AND FILM MAKER His interest and engagement with wildlife has characterised both Joakim's private and working lives. Joakim has won several prizes as a wildlife film maker and photographer. He has received commissions from Mission Blue in San Francisco, the World Wildlife Fund, Wild Aid, Naturvårdsverket and many

other major organisations. Since 2015 he has been one of three presenters on the Nordic area's most popular wildlife program, Mitt i naturen. "The hosting role is a new challenge for me. Previously I have held the camera and learnt an unbelievable amount from all the experts I have worked with over many years. That is something that I benefit greatly from now.

» People in Ljungskile have known me since I was a child, so I can completely relax here « TELLS A STORY IN PHOTOGRAPHS Joakim is curious about people and animals. He calls himself a conservation photographer and is driven to tell us about species and natural areas under threat through the medium of images. "Images and films are magical tools that get people involved. I don't want to just show the beauty in the natural world, but also the problems that we humans have created in a short space of time. Our way of life is the main reason that species are vanishing". He hopes to inspire people to care more for, and get out into nature more. Joakim lectures at schools and businesses, often in unusual contexts such as fashion shows, kickoff events and other environments. "Meeting children and people who care for nature is very rewarding. The forest can appear threatening if you haven't been into it. I can raise awareness by relating the amazing experiences that I have had – everything

from meeting a giant ray below the sea, to seeing an elephant calf crying because its mother had been shot by poachers. SWAM WITH KILLER WHALES In February, Joakim was on an assignment in Tromsö and was lucky enough to swim with killer whales in the crystal blue arctic ocean. He waxes lyrical on the feeling of being so close to such a powerful creature. But he equally enjoys getting out onto the sea or a lake in his kayak here at home and getting close to a beaver or an otter. Joakim has lots of tips for those who want to discover the forest and sea in Ljungskile. "If you want to get out to sea, I recommend renting a kayak or a canoe and going out to one of the fantastic small islands off Ljungskile, for example Dirhuvudholmen and Oxholmen. If you are lucky, you will see seals." TIPS ABOUT MUSSEL EXPEDITIONS "Another great experience is going on a mussel expedition, where one harvests blue mussels and cook them. In Ljungskile there is also Musselbaren which serves really good seafood. There are several footpaths along the sea and a huge number of easily accessible bathing spots such as Kallbadhuset, Ulvön and Kungsparken. Joakim also has favourite spots in the forests on Bredfjället, as well as in the wildlife around Stora and Lilla Skarsjön. "It is really beautiful by the lakes and they are easy to get to. There are barbecue sites, wind protection with logs, great bathing spots and good fishing for anyone with a fishing license. Part of the forest is ancient woodland. This means that the forest is not cultivated but has been left alone. Lots of plant and animal species can be found here. Uddevalla&DU 11

What was a grain store for a 17th century farmhouse, has been converted and gradually developed into an exciting shop with both interior design and clothing. EvaLena and Lillemor tell the story of their journey during a coffee break just before the shop opens on a sunny weekday. "We both live on Bokenäset and met in a parents group 24 years ago. It turned out that we had the same dream of opening an interior design shop in the countryside. We like interior design and clothing and wanted to build a creative shop environment", says EvaLena Swartswe.

We are living our dream at Bokenäset When friends EvaLena Swartswe and Lillemor Johansson opened the interior design shop Två Fröknar in an old grain store on Bokenäset nine years ago, there were many who were sceptical about the whole idea. But they never doubted themselves. "Customers appreciate getting out into the country and shopping in a calm, different environment. We have developed the shop step by step and it is now a popular destination for an outing. For the last two years there has also been a popular restaurant next door.

16 Uddevalla&DU

OPENED THE SHOP WHEN THE CHILDREN STARTED SCHOOL When the children reached school age we were in a position to realise the business concept. Two important requirements were that they should be able to control their working hours and start small scale. The name Två Fröknar (Two Misses) worked well because they both lived in cohabitating relationships, and still do. EvaLena had several years retail experi­ ence, while Lillemor had worked for Uddevalla council working with people with learning difficulties. Neither of them had run a business before, but their partners were contractors and could help in different ways. "We ended up here at Svälte Gård by the sea by natural progression", explains Lillemor. The grain store was part of my partners family property and we felt that the location close to Rotviksbro and the 161 road between Uddevalla and Lysekil was perfect. A lot of tourists and summer house owners pass here in the course of a year.

CAFÉ IN THE SHOP From the very beginning, the business concept was to mix on-trend interiors with things that they liked themselves. After a while they tried selling clothes and got a good response from the customers. Lillemor and EvaLena also realised the idea of having a little café in the shop as a feature. They put in a small kitchen, set out a few tables and took turns baking cakes. "The café in the shop was a real success. The customers liked our home baked cookies as much as our interior design goods and clothing. In the end the demand was so great that we outgrew the kitchen. We then decided to focus entirely on the shop instead", says EvaLena.

» Sometimes we have to pinch ourselves to remind ourselves what we have achieved « POPULAR RESTAURANT AS A NEIGHBOUR When more and more customers asked if there was anywhere they could get food on Bokenäset they had the idea of getting in touch with the owners of the Brygghuset restaurant. A couple of years later they opened the restaurant Stallgården, next door to Två Fröknar. "In many ways it is the perfect solution. Stallgården is a good and popular restaurant and we help each other to attract customers.

We organise open evenings together. What's more the premises are linked, so the custo­ mers can move between our shop and the restaurant", they said. SALUHALL OPENING ON THE FARM During 2017 a food hall will be opened in the new built premises in the farm. Locally produced food will be sold here by a new player. When Lillemor and EvaLena think of all that has happened around and with their company during the last nine years they feel great pride. "Sometimes we have to pinch ourselves to remind ourselves what we have achieved," says EvaLena. We have taken it in small steps, one at a time and the company turnover has increased each year. Now we probably don't want to grow too much more. But we always listen to the customers and new ideas pop up all the time. FOCUS ON PERSONAL SERVICE "Running our own business is a lot of work and takes a lot of our waking hours", says Lillemor. "But it is worth it. We really love our jobs and getting to know so many wonderful people. Our customers range in age from 0 to 100. It is nice to give them personal service in a calm and creative shopping environment. Both of them really enjoy being at Bokenäset. Lillemor lives by Lanesund and EvaLena lives beside Gullmarsfjorden. "Bokenäset is alive all year round. It has nearly everything you need. Preschool, school, shops, old people's home, an active sports club Bokenäs IF, the sea, the forest and lots of lovely neighbours. It is perfect to live in the country and be so close to town", explains EvaLena. Uddevalla&DU 17

LIVE CLOSE TO NATURE Long working days over many years have taught Lillemor and EvaLena to be careful to take proper time off work in between. "We both like being out and enjoying nature. EvaLena likes to going running in the forest and I like to take my dog for long walks," says Lillemor. "When customers ask for tips on what to do on Bokenäset we have lots of advice on activities to give them. There is a lot happening here throughout the year. For those are who are active we can recommend the forest areas, cycle trails, child-friendly bathing spots, beautiful stretches of water for kayaking and great diving locations in Gullmarsfjorden. "We have noticed that more and more people want to get out into nature – either on their own or in a group activity. Our shop and the Stallgården restaurant are just two of the many popular destinations on Bokenäset.

Strandpromenaden – a beautiful journey through Uddevalla's history

The Strandpromenaden in Uddevalla takes you close to some of the town's most notable sights and at the same time gives an insight into Uddevalla's long and interesting history. In just over nine kilometres, the beautiful route takes you from the ice age to the present day. Uddevalla residents are very proud of the Strandpromenaden – it is a real magnet for both residents and visitors and has won the award for Sweden's most beautiful road. The Strandpromenaden stretches from the world unique shell banks in eastern Uddevalla, along the Bäveån river, through the centre of town, via the spectacular wood deck at Byfjorden's coastline and through Sweden's first sea bathing resort, Gustafsberg, to the final destination of Lindesnäs in the west. During the journey you can cool off at a number of different types of bathing spots, visit museums and shops, have a coffee or enjoy a meal.

The shell banks – a world unique collection created 10,000 years ago

Uddevalla has a long and interesting mili­tary history that you can investigate at Bohusläns Försvarsmuseum (Bohuslän's Defence museum). Here you can find a unique silver hoard, models of Bohus fort, soldier's croft no. 57 Lövhem and more.

Take the opportunity to buy fresh meat and delicacies from the sea and local farms at Uddewalla Saluhall on Norra Hamngatan. A newly opened food hall in historic remises dating from 1904. You can also find locally produced bread and cheeses, a restaurant and café.

On a cliff at Byfjordens southern beach is the Strandpromenaden's final destination; Villa Lindesnäs. A beautiful summer house that these days has a restaurant, a café and banquetting rooms. Conclude the walk with good food and fantastic views of the Uddevalla's bridge.

for those seeking some recreation and relaxation. The shell banks have lots of insects, primarily butterflies, which are attracted here by the rich flora, plants that enjoy the calcium rich earth. The best way to experience all of this is to go on the 2 km long Skalgrusslingan. You can borrow butterfly nets from the Skalbanksmuseet and try to catch a butterfly.

Don't miss the architect designed museum.

Have a coffee on the way

Take a stroll in one of Uddevalla's oldest and nicest town parks, Hasselbacken. It is located beside the Bäveån river and since 2015 it has also had some Spanish steps. A relaxed and beautiful place to rest between shopping trips in the town centre.

One of Uddevalla's most popular lunch and coffee venues, Roomer Coffee & Deli, can be found on Kochs Gränd beside the Bäveån. You can enjoy good food, home baked delicacies and great coffee.

Uddewalla Saluhall

Villa Lindesnäs

Just outside Uddevalla town centre are the world's largest shell banks with the shell remains of over 100 different marine invertebrates and the bones from whales, seals and fish. The shell banks were created when the inland ice melted 10,000 years ago. Today it is a nature reserve and the area has the Skalbanksmuseet (Shell banks museum) where one can learn about what really happened here 10,000 years ago. It is the perfect destination for an outing both for families with children and


Bohuslän's museum – always worth a visit Art exhibitions, lectures, exhibitions about Bohuslän past and present, music evenings, themed days, boat hall, playroom and activities for children. Just some examples of the fantastic program that Bohuslän's Museum offers all year round. There is always something interesting to do and experience for children and adults. Many people come here to eat home cooked meals, Bohuslän's egg-cheese, or just grab a coffee at Kajkanten's café and restaurant or to buy something special at the museum shop. Bohuslän's Museum is centrally located in Uddevalla beside the Bäveån river.

Uddevalla TURISTCENTER You can find our tourist centre at quay side in Södra Hamnen in the beautiful Gamla Badhuset (Old bath house). Just outside is Uddevalla's Guest marina and the harbour that the Skärgårdsbåtarna depart from. Here you can find all the information and inspiration you need for Uddevalla. You can also rent a bike, purchase tickets for the Skärgårdsbåtarna or plan your trips while having a drink or a coffee at the summer Hamnkaféet.

Gustafsberg is Sweden's oldest bath and spa resort Just before the end of the Strandpromenaden you come to the bathing spot Gustafsberg which was very hot in the 18th century and up to the end of the 19th century. Walk around the area and look at all the old buildings, which were then summer houses, hotels and restaurants for the guests at the baths. During the Gustafsberg's days, 12-13 August, you get a historical glimpse into the life of the bath resort with guided tours of the beautiful buildings, old fashioned games, entertainment and much more. If you wish to stay the night there is a hostel in the old hot bathhouse. At the edge of the beach is the Snäckan's Café, where you can eat, have a coffee and enjoy the view. Just beside it is the old bath resort's restaurant which is now a popular banqueting suite. Gustafsberg also has a pier that the Skärgårdsbåtarna call at. Uddevalla&DU 35
