Experience seaweed and the sea
If you have some experience with a kayak, you can glide along with a group from Catxalot in the Grebbestad archipelago, look out for seaweed and gather it while still afloat. You can also go on a seaweed safari and learn which varieties of seaweed are good to eat, where to find them and how to harvest them sustainably; or join an organised walk over the islands through honey-scented summer meadows, along cliffs, and over beaches and heaths.
