There are many activities for all ages at Käringön!

Discover the island on your own simply by strolling around among all the houses on the north island or out on the rocks in the south or find some other inspiration below...



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. 


BATHING
One of the real showpieces of Käringön is of course the salty baths.

CRAB FISHING
To fish crabs from a small dock is by far the most popular activity among our younger visitors and they can spend hours doing this. It's quite common that elder siblings or parents also get quite engaged in the activity...

What do you need? A lace, a bucket and a bait, that's it! Of course it is also quite smart to wear  a life vest if you can't swim. When you are happy with your catch you let the crabs have a race on a small rock and see who comes first into the sea again.


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.

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.

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.

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


LOBSTER FISHING
If you have ever been part of bringing up lobster pots from the depth of the sea you always want to do it once again. Join us at sea for a few hours! The season for lobster ("the black gold") always starts the first Monday after September 20. and the best time for lobster fishing is normally during October. 
 


MINIATURE GOLF
The miniature golf course with nine exciting holes is located close to the harbour. You can rent clubs and balls at the kiosk by the harbour.

SAUNA
Book a visit in our wonderful sauna just outside the hotel where you can enjoy the heat and the seaview. Cool off by a salty dip in the water from our own dock. Free of chage for our hotel guests!

TENNIS
The tennis court is found close to the harbour - behind the fish shop. You can make your reservation at "Skeppshandeln" beside the hotel. In order to make a reservation you also have to become a member in the local tennis club.
