You can borrow security equipment and fishing trousers. You will help pull out the traps of the ocean, empty them, hold a lobster and thus learn how to fish the black gold of the sea. The boat departs daily from the steamboat dock in Edshultshall and the trip lasts 2.5 to 3 hours. This year, the first trip is September 24 and continues until the end of November. You sleep well and comfortably at Lådfabriken in one of the uniquely decorated rooms.

You wake up late the day after and will be served a delicious breakfast.

Contact us or book your trip here. (*based on shared double room)

“What a Fantastic Weekend!! Thank you so much for looking after us this weekend – we had such a great time. It was challenging enough for us so we felt a real buzz of achievement, but still left us wanting to go out again each day. The food during the trip was excellent and lots of chocolate (always a treat). The accommodation was really very special, and Marcel and Johan are a delight. Their cooking and table setting are magnificent, and I’m buzzing with interior design ideas. Altogether an amazing trip and i’ve learnt so much – thank you!” Jonna Rogers, England
