Lobster fishing in the world’s most beautiful archipelago

Autumn has arrived and the waves were crashing up onto the square. The Captain navigates his boat out expertly in the early morning light, thinking that these are calm waters compared to his journeys over the Atlantic. Out there his chums in Fjällbacka would really get to see what harsh conditions were like, he chuckled to himself.

The pots needed to be rigged and laid on the seabed so that the hotel guests could join the Captain to harvest the black gold of the sea.

One of the high points of autumn at Stora Hotellet is when we get to enjoy the most delicious of all shellfish – lobster. The lobster premiere always falls on the first Monday after 20 September at 7am.

You can book the hotel’s lobster package every weekend after the lobster premiere and follow in the Captain’s footsteps to get your own haul of this edible treasure. You’ll go out with a local fisherman from Fjällbacka on an exciting adventure, hear stories and maybe even a secret or two about lobster fishing. Back at the hotel something to warm you up will be served.

The evening’s 5 course dinner will be lobster themed.

Arrive Friday or Saturday and stay one or two nights.

This package can also be booked on weekdays by groups of 10 or more. Please contact the hotel for more information.
