Fjallbacka is a small fishing village in Tanum, in Bohuslan, Vastra Gotaland County , (  Sweden ).

About :  In the middle of Fjallbacka lies the 74 meter high Vetteberget. Through the mountain, Kungsklyftan, formerly known as Ramneklovan (The Raven), runs. The gap got its name after Oscar II visited Fjallbacka in 1886. Like many other Bohuslan coastal communities, the old Fjallbacka turns crouching below the mountains towards the sea. The new Fjallbacka lies on the fields towards land and up on the mountains. Outside the coast is the Fjallbacka archipelago and far out in the west lies Vaderoarna.

Ingrid Bergman called Fjallbacka her paradise on earth. She stayed here for over 20 summers with her children. Camilla Lackberg places her murder mysteries here and Astrid Lindgren’s book, Ronja Rovardotter was filmed in the famous Kungsklyftan that splits Vetteberget in half.
