Seafood or barbecue buffet at Furholmen

skaldjursbuffe

Only 5 minutes away from mainland Strömstad, you find Furholmen Restaurant on the island with same name. The restaurant is furnished as a cosy boat house of Bohuslän. 

It is the perfect place to enjoy fresh seafood from Kosterhavet. So close to town but still in the archipelago. A barbecue buffet is another great option. 

If you like to, we can arrange for a a troubadour to entertain you during the evening. 

 

Archipelago tours

kostero

With our two boats M/F Kosterö and M/S Vesleö ll it's easy to explore the Swedish and Norwegian archipelagoes.
We can arrange food and drink onboard upon request. 

 

Tour the marine national park

Pack your bag, with swimsuit, jumper and maybe a jacket. Now it's time for a whole day in the archipelago. We board MS Kosterö and start the day with a cup of coffe and a sandwich. We will be guided through the islands and the national park. 

After about 1,5 hours we jump ashore at Ursholmen and will be told about the history of the island and the lighthouse keepers. A sample from seafood from Kosterhavet will be served by our chef who meets us at the lighthouse. 30 minutes later it is time to move on to Rörvik at South Koster (Sydkoster). A diver waits for us here with snorkling equipment. 

We snorkel for 1 hour. You can change the snorkeling to go cycling around the island with a guide instead. 

Now, it's time for lunch on the beach. 

After a lunch break the tour proceeds to Tjärnö. Here we visit the marine research centre. A tour by the marine guides is an informative and fun experience.

The skipper now waits for us with some "fika" - that's Swedish for coffee and something sweet - before taking us back to Strömstad city centre. 

Dive in the marine national parks

Together with professional dive masters, we go out for a diving trip. 

The dive master tells us about the circumstances and where different species can be found. A basket full of fika is there for you if you feel like a cup of coffe or a sandwich. 

After the first dive it is time for lunch.

When you feel for it you can go for next dive. 

On the way back to town you can listen to stories about wrecks that are in the water around us. 

Champagne cruise

Sutiable for small groups in search of a more intimate and cosy atmosphere. 
With oysters and champagne, seafood or shrimps onboard, we leave the harbour and steer towards the archipelago.  
Enjoy the delicious seafood and feel the smell of sea.
Coffee and some sweets will be served after the food.
The skipper and his crew will be more than happy to tell you about what we can see during the cruise and tell you some history. 
If you would like to make go ashore somewhere, we will of course do that. You decide. 
After 3-4 hours' cruise we will be back in town again. 

 

Barbecue evening in the archipelago

We navigate in the inner archipelago, to the island Saltö, which is one of many nature reserves in the Strömstad area. 
If you like to, you can snorkel along marked snorkel paths here. 
We make a stop at a beach on Saltö to enjoy something delicious from the barbecue. 
We enjoy a tasty barbecue buffet in the outdoors.
After the meal, we return to town again. 

Island tour of the Strömstad archipelago

The boat will pick us up and head for Ursholmen, where we go ashore to walk the short distance to the lighthouse, where a chef will meet us with a snack from the ocean and something to drink. 

We stop for a while to enjoy the food, drinks and great views.

We then continue to the next stop, where the flavours of grilled ocean produce awaits us. After teasing our tastebuds with these delicacies, we continue to Furholmen Restaurant, where a seafood buffet is served in the boathouse environment.

Ursholmen - Sweden's westernmost Lighthouse

We will travel through the Koster Sea and its beautiful archipelago by boat.

Upon arrival at Ursholmen, Sweden's most westerly lighthouse, after about 1.5 hours at sea, we go ashore and walk the short distance to the lighthouse where we are greeted by an amazing view. A visit to the small museum of lighthouse keepers and their families offers interesting historic insights. 
The lighthouse is also an exquisite place to enjoy fresh prawns fromthe Koster Sea.
