The Shellfish Journey is based around the best shellfish in the world, wonderful places to eat and stay, and fishing trips in the unique magical archipelago of Bohuslän.
Outside the summer season you find the genuine Bohuslän - salty, barren, windswept and calm. Head out on a shellfish tour, to catch the finest prawns, mussels, oysters, langoustines and lobster. Add a little salt to your life.
In Bohuslän, the beginning of the lobster fishing period is just as important as the annual elk hunt, and at 7 am on Monday 25rd September both professional fishermen and local residents put their lobster pots in the water.
Is there a more Bohuslän experience than catching lobster out in the cold, salty, fresh sea air, and later that day enjoying a lobster dinner at one of the many excellent hotels here? Professional lobster fishermen show you how to place and bait lobster traps. After finishing your dinner you return to your room for a good night's sleep. The following morning a generous breakfast buffet awaits you.
Bring your family and fish for freshwater crayfish in the Göta Canal or one of the lakes in Skaraborg. Book a crayfish party and celebrate the Swedish late summer with those tasty crustaceans, delicious accompaniments, classic crayfish party paper hats and moon shaped lanterns.
Many people say the shellfish in Bohuslän is the best in the world. If you like shellfish there's an ocean of experiences that will match your tastes perfectly. In addition to first-class accommodation including a shellfish dinner, you could leave shore for an oyster safari, mussel picking or langoustine catching. In Bohuslän you never have to choose.
