Crayfish fishing for the whole family in the Göta canal

Lyrestad, Mariestad

Come and fish crayfish with us here at Norrqvarn by the Göta canal. It's an easy, child friendly activity. Traps are dropped into the water from the canal bank, so you don’t need a boat, just a wheelbarrow and torches. We’re sure the whole family will enjoy our crayfishing package!

After you've checked in we’ll meet up for a demonstration of what to do.

When the traps have been baited and left in the canal excitement mounts until finally when darkness falls and the moon comes out, it’s time to go and pull up the crayfish traps to see how big your haul is.

When you check out you’ll get a bottle of freshly cooked crayfish from the Göta canal to take home with you.

It's an exciting adventure for all ages!
