Lobster safaris in Sweden.

Abundant fish supplies off Sweden’s west coast made this rich area what it is and the delicacies it continues to offer means that it’s a tradition that locals celebrate with a passion. From turbot and sole to lobster, oysters and prawns, fish lovers will have a ball! There are plenty of excellent restaurants on the coast where you can sample the local culinary delights.

In summer and early autumn, you’ll find ‘sea safaris’ are popular and it’s easy to see why. You go out with the fishermen, learn about marine life with anecdotes about fun fishing thrown in and feast on seafood to boot!

Sweden’s west coast’s ‘big five’ are oysters, prawns, lobster, crayfish and mussels. You’ve missed the great oyster shucking contest in May (make it a date for next year), but the time is right for a lobster safari. September is lobster month and is known as the ‘golden weeks’ because of the fabulous light. You’ll find lobster on virtually all menus in the area and there’s a general party atmosphere. Go out with the fishermen and help them pull up the pots and learn about these crustacean creatures… then try one! Go to www.evertssjobod.se for details of safari packages.
