Fish for crayfish

To fish for crayfish and then have the opportunity to cook or taste their catch, only a few have experienced. Do you want to be one of them?

Småland has a long tradition of fishing for the delicious shellfish, whether the fishing has taken place in Vättern, in smaller lakes or in streams so small that you can climb over them. A few accommodation providers in Småland arrange popular crayfishing packages. This means you have the possibility to experience the whole process. From the fishing to the traditional "kräftskiva" (crayfish party) with all its extras.
