Where to stay in Torekov for the 505 World Championships

The village of Torekov is a popular holiday destination in Sweden with people attracted to the beautiful beaches, picturesque walking trails and numerous activities the area has to offer. This means that there is a wide selection of accommodation alternatives to choose from when you come to the 2020 505 World Championships. 

Hotels

Torekov and the surrounding area offers a number of hotel options varying from luxury to more homely alternatives. If you’re travelling with family a hotel that offers a day-spa may be attractive while the racing is going on offshore, others may be more interested in those with a golf course nearby to get a few rounds in before the after-sail kicks off in the evening. Whatever your comfort level, there will be something that suits your tastes when you come to Torekov.

 

Guest houses and B&Bs

If you’re going to be focused on the yacht racing and just need somewhere comfortable to crash that offers a good, hot cup of coffee to kick start the day there is a number of guest houses and B&Bs in the Torekov area to choose from. Check the list provided for all of the options available in and around Torekov.

 

Camping grounds 

Many sailors expressed interest in staying in their motorhomes at the regatta and one of the advantages of the move to Torekov is the camping ground located just a few hundred metres walk from the harbour. The camping ground offers cabins, motorhome facilities and tent sites in a lush, forested setting giving the feeling of being close to nature, even with the village just a short walk away.

Private Homes

Another option might be to rent an entire house for the regatta. There are many people that have holiday houses in Torekov that are available for rental through the summer. This could be the perfect option if you will be travelling with a larger family group or if you and a group of friends want to stay together for the regatta. 

The Torekov tourist bureau has put together a helpful list of venues that are available during the regatta with many offering specials if you remember to use the unique event code provided.

Remember not to leave it to the last minute though, as Torekov is a popular place in the summertime my advice is to book as soon as possible once you have made up your mind to participate.
