Camilla’s books are set in Fjällbacka, the coastal village where Camilla was born and raised.
In northern Bohuslän, about 140 km north of Göteborg, lies the little community of Fjällbacka. Already a fishing village in the 17th century, Fjällbacka is now an idyll that’s steeped in history. Its name derives from the imposing rocky outcrop that the village encircles.
Thousands of tourists visit Fjällbacka in the summer. For the rest of the year, there’s about 1,000 permanent residents. Fjällbacka might be small, but there are still hotels, cafés and shops.
The best way to get to Fjällbacka without a car is by train to Uddevalla. You can also fly to Trollhättan and make your way from there.
