Oyster- & mussel adventure with Strandflickorna in Lysekil
Oyster and Mussel Adventure with a Scent of Seaweed and Freshly Cooked Mussels
The Oyster and Mussel Tour departs from Norra Hamnen (the North Harbour) in Lysekil. We travel on Signe, our locally built wooden boat from 1952, to the mussel farm where we show you how mussels are grown and harvested. We collect some mussels to cook and eat together later in the day, on a beautiful rock by the sea.
Signe then takes us to one of the few oyster beds in Bohuslän. We pick oysters and learn more about
this delicacy at a very special and unique place in Bohuslän. Right underneath the boat is where the
famous and exclusive oysters Ostrea Edulis grow. We talk about everything connected to oysters, and offer the opportunity to try them.
We stop off at Käringeholmen, where we cook our mussels and open the oysters, and enjoy them by
the shore. After an unforgettable experience in an amazing environment, we take you back to Lysekil, accompanied by the relaxing sound of Signe's engine.
