Kayak: Sea food à la granite (Family tour)

Blåmusslor, kajak, naturen och livskvalitet.

ENJOY SAVORY BLUE MUSSELS AND THE SETTING SUN.

Bring your kids, grandma or best friends along on this highly comfortable culinary tour in steady kayaks. If you apreciate peace and quiet, short and comfortable paddling in a spectacularly beautiful nature this is the tour for you!

Indulge and enjoy the best of Bohuslän

Preparing the blue mussels and enjouing the culinary treat is a major part of this tour. But it is equally important to enjoy the scenic views and good company. This is soft adventure, slow food, nature and family gathering all brought into a 4 hour tour.

Relaxing

The kayaks are comfortable and stable. The pace is low and adapted to beginners and we stay close to the shore. The guide will give you paddling advice and will also tell you about local customs, lore and the marine life.

Cosy

Anyone who wishes can take an extra turn with the kayak while the other stay on the island, playing, socializing and enjoying themselves.

Blue mussels (Mytilus edulis) with accessories  are served with non-alcoholic beverage. You are welcome to bring your own meal beverage, if desired.

NB! As the locally harvested blue mussels are temporarily in short supply, we may serve another local delicatessen on this tour: Nephrops Norvegicus (langoustine or Norwegian lobster)

Lysekil in Bohuslän is perfect as a base for adventures at sea and on land. Outdoor West arranges comfortable, safe and challenging experiences at different levels in this area.

 

 

We appreciate if you show up 15 minutes prior to departure. After a safety demonstration the guide will assist you in fitting the equipment.

When kayaks have been launched and everyone is seated you will have an introduction to basic paddle techniques.
We make several stops along the way to make sure everyone is comfortable. During the stops the guide will tell you about the little town in the middle of the ocean and its surroundings.
After almost one hour of paddling we will go ashore on a desolate beach or an iland. The kids can help cooking or go wrecking while the meal is prepared. We enjoy the marine delicacies (mussels or langoustine) and the sunset.
After the meal we pack up up and launch the kayaks and head back while the sun is slowly setting behind us

After placing the kayaks on the rack we end the tour with some stretching and a smile.

 

Soft adventure

We have planned the tour so that previous experience of kayaking is not necessary. Safety, comfort and enjoyment are our guiding principles as we plan and implement our tours. In the winter months, the pace is even slower to avoid sweating, thus getting cold.

 

Depending on prevailing weather conditions time and/or location may be subject to change, or the tour cancelled altogether, or we will offer you an alternative activity. It is always the tour leader/guide of each activity that has the final say, after communication with the participants or group leader.
