The cable ferry Kosterlänken is a connection across the Koster Strait between North and South Koster. During the summer months, the little ferry is manned every day from June until mid-August. During the rest of the year, visitors can travel between the islands on the Koster boat from the Västra Bryggan jetty on North Koster to Långegärde on South Koster for a fee, and children up to 13 years of age can travel for free. If you are not in a rush, you can be lucky and get across with a local on the cable ferry.

Payment machine (card) available at the quay or SMS payment (no cash).
