If you visit Bohuslän, chances are likely that you will want to experience the sea and the archipelago. In Heestrand you can take the beautiful walking paths along the coast and visit the many creeks and bathing places. In the summer you can take a nice dip in the ocean and in the winter you can come back to the hostel and warm up in the sauna after your walk. There are many ways to experience the sea. You can rent kayaks at Hamburgsund Infocenter. They offer kayaks to a reasonable price and it's a great way to experience the surroundings. They also rent out bikes.


Blå Karin can be found in Hamburgsund and belongs to the hostel. We offer boat taxi, wedding decorations and boattrips to Väderöarna. Why not book at package that offers sauna and hot tub at Badholmen in Fjällbacka? Or book us to take you to the after-beach in Tanum Strand and let us get you home safe afterwards!





Ingemar Granqvist at  M/S Mira offer Norweigan lobster fishing, lobster safari and mackerel fishing as well as guided tours through the archipelago. He will tell you stories about fishing and you will see when they pull up the cages and how they cook the Norweigan lobsters on the boat. The catch will be brought back to the hostel for a feast. Contact us for more information.


Together with Kalvö Ostron we offer oyster school and oyster tasting for groups in a genuine boathouse setting on Kalvö. Vi have great package deals for both small and large groups and you can either be picked up by Åsa for transportation to the island or by one of the other boats in the area.


If you want a boat trip or a boat taxi we can recommend Hans Holmström who is a great storyteller. Another recommendation is a trip to Väderöarna. These depart from Hamburgsund.




Opening hours for the reception : 8 am-11 am and between 5 pm - 7 pm in June, July and August.
