Autumn in Klåva

Autumn in the archipelago is about shellfish and above all the lobster season. Also take the opportunity to update your working wardrobe and prepare a cosy home before the darker nights. In Klåva you can purchase everything you need.

Lobster season

The first Monday after the 20th September the Lobster season begins in Bohuslän. The boats leave the harbour early in the morning to lay their lobster pots, and the morning after the first lobsters are pulled in.

Surf and kitesurf Hummerviken bay

In the Autumn the west coast often offers higher waves and stronger winds, perfect for surfing and kitesurfing. A recommendation is Hummervik on Öckerö, only 10 min drive from Klåva.

Bouldering in Ersdalen

Ersdalen Nature Reserve on Hönö’s north-western side is popular both for long walks on the rocks and bouldering of various difficulty levels.

Beautifully situated right by the water, an extraordinary climbing experience is on offer. Bouldering is a form of fee-climbing done over small rocky formations without the use of ropes or harnesses.

In addition to Hönö one can also climb on Ökerö, including Rävholmen, Fotö and Hälsö.
