Short getaway - great excitement!

Join us on a lobster trip to Marstrand near Gothenburg: Here you can experience the thrill of pulling your own lobster up from the sea and have a weekend of close contact with the sea, rocks and lobsters.


You get:

  • Fun and unique DIY experience

  • Break from everyday life in close contact with nature

  • Short getaway of one night - perfect as a trip with friends

The start of the lobster season is a big event in the historic sailing and fishing town of Marstrand just outside Gothenburg. In 2022, the season starts on September 26. Here the lobster cages are placed on the seabed, and a day or two later you sail out to the cages and lift them up.

The excitement is great when you lift the cages into the boat by hand and hope that there will be a profit! It is a unique hands-on experience of taking the lobster out of the cage, sailing it home and preparing it for dinner.


The boat trip from the historic town of Marstrand and around to the lobster cages is an experience in itself. Fiskerbåden is first park for sea, sky and rocky islands.


Happy Hike organizes lobster trips to Marstrand in collaboration with a local fisherman who has been fishing for lobster up there for more than 40 years. 

The trips are adapted so that they are intended for participants who come from Denmark and need a single overnight stay in Marstrand. The trips last two days and include a lobster trip as well as an overnight hotel stay with breakfast.


In addition, you can buy extra activities such as cooking the lobster with a chef and a glass of white wine on the quayside, a tour and a walk around Marstrandsøen's beautiful castle and then there is the opportunity to relax in the hotel's spa.
