Unwind and ENJOY SAVORY BLUE MUSSELS 

Bring your kids, grandma or best friends along on this highly comfortable culinary tour in steady kayaks. If you apreciate peace and quiet, good food, a 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 togehter and enjoying this 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 when there are kids participating. The guide will give you paddling advice and will also tell you about local customs, lore and the marine life.

Explore the island, or stay behind to cook, play, socialize and enjoy yourself.

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

Optional add-on:
Would you like us to replace the mussels with other marien delicatessen you may chose among: Nephrops Norvegicus (langoustine or Norwegian lobster) or Pandalus Borealis (Northern Prawn) or Cancer Pagurus (Edible Crab.) This will incur an extra fee as the price of seafood fluctuates. We will contact you on the day of the tour for a final decision when we present you with the going price that day.

Additional Information

WHAT IF THE WEATHER IS "BAD" ???
In case of strong wind (+8 MPS), we may either relocate to another area for kayaking, or postpone the tour a few hours. Depending on prevailing weather conditions time and/or location may be subject to change, or the tour may be cancelled altogether. If cancelled, we will reimburse the entire amount, minus a small administration fee. However it is our ambition to offer an alternative activity. For instance, rock climbing if the wind is to hard for kayaking. If so, you will be reimbursed any price difference, except for a small administration fee. Please note that it is always the tour leader/guide of each activity that has the final say, after communication with the participants or group leader.

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 about half an 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.
