Activities on Käringön

UNIQUELY MEMORABLE EXPERIENCES

There are lots of activities for all ages on Käringön. Explore the island under your own steam by just wandering around between the houses on the north coast and out on the rocks in the south, or find inspiration on this page.

Our personal favourites are the sauna at the dock of Lotshotellet, paddling kayaks and the "SealRacing" boat trip.

If you want to do something extra special book yourself in here for lobster fishing in the autumn, when we also reserve places for our guests at Petersons Krog’s lobster supper. The same naturally applies to the best Christmas Buffet along the coast which our neighbours also offer.

THE OPEN-AIR BATH - "FRILUFTSBADET"

The open-air bath stems from the late 19th century when the island turned into a seaside resort. It's located on the smooth rocks on the south tip of the island and by tradition this is a nude bath. THis is a simple bath for calm days and the water is so fresh and clear. The only help you get to get in and out of the water is a rope attached to the rock by the "natural staircase". 

THE DIVING BOARD BATH - "TRAMPOLINENBADET"

A deep rock lagoon with crystal clear water. A ladder if you are careful and a diving board if you are bolder. Rocks that have been ground soft my thousands of years of wind and water. Enjoy the marvellous view towards Måsekskär lighthouse and Carlstens Fästning (the fortress in Marstrand) in the distance. This bathing place is as far out southwest as you can get on the island. 

THE COLDBATHS - "HERR OCH DAMBADET"

The Herr- och dambaden (gentlemen's and ladies' baths) in the southwest part of the island are gems from a bygone era when cold, salty baths and barefoot walks on soft rocks were exclusive pleasures for society. This is the way it was in the beginning of the 20th century and the two houses have survived since then. Ladies separated from gentlemen and of course no swim suits!

THE BAY OF THE LADIES - "TANTERNAS VIK"

This is one of the baths for ladies. Nice and smooth rocks directly by the water. Follow the signs from the football field (Myra). Gentlemen are recommended to discretely turn their eyes away when passing by...

BOULES

The boule-field is located at "Myra" - you can borrow equipment at Lotshotellet.

BOATING

There is so much to choose from that we had to create a dedicated tab for boating.

MUSEUM - THE FISHERMAN'S COTTAGE

The fisherman's cottage is house 78 - a so called single house, probably from the end of the 18th century. It was newly renowated in 1825 when it became the home of the newly wedded couple Engström. Their granddaughter, Matilda Engström, donated the house in order for future generations to be able to experience how it was to live in the past.

ANGLING

The waters around our island are excellent for fishing and you will get a unique fishing experience as we have fantastic fishing spots for wild Sea Trout. The average size of the trouts is 50 centimeters and there is always a fair chance of catching an even bigger fish. The Sea Trout season stretches from April to September. After that fishing is not allowed and the spawning starts - the fishing area rests during the winter. 

GUIDED TOURS

Participate in an exciting guided tour on the island! Listen to its history dating back to the 16th century. Experience the harsh conditions for the fishermen and the more well-situated pilots and captains.

Utegym

At "Myra" there is an open-air gym that is free of charge for all visitors.
