In an oak forest about a one hour drive east of Gothenburg you will find Ekhagens Forntidsby. The village contains re-constructed hamlets from the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages. Knowledgeable guides show you around and tell you about the buildings. In the summer, the houses are populated by displays of ancient people who look almost real. You can also try shooting with a bow or paddling in a canoe made out of a tree trunk. If you come by car, take Riksväg 40 eastwards and turn north onto road 46 at Ulricehamn.
Downhill skiing is not something that you would associate with western Sweden, but there are some ski slopes here. The largest, without being large in any sense, is Ulricehamn Ski Center. The area is situated about a one-hour drive east of Gothenburg and offers skiing both in the daytime and in the evenings. A ski pass for one day does not cost much; besides there are discounts for children. Do note that the area is mostly suitable for children and beginners. Experienced skiers will have to travel over 500km north to find more advanced slopes. To get here by car, take road 40 towards Ulicehamn, then follow the signs.
