Blekinge’s archipelago in the south of Sweden, is famous for its pike fishing. Here you can find plenty of large pike, often weighing around 10kg. Experience the sports fishing in Sweden’s southernmost archipelago.
Our guests return year after year – they appreciate the surroundings and accommodation just as much as the fishing. The varied coastline with it’s rock formations, shallow bays and deeper parts ensure you a wide range of fishing experiences.
If you bring your own boat, we offer access to a small ramp for launching the boat at the fishing camp site and we can always find you a place to park your trailer. We have a wood fired sauna and a hot tub by the beach wich you can enjoy after your day of pike fishing.
Popular areas for pike fishing are Järnaviks bay and the surrounding waters including those around the islands Bjärnö, Tjärö and Tärnö as well as the islands and coastline around Eriksberg nature reserve and the Bräkneån estuary. Further out to sea you can fish for sea trout and cod. If you like fishing in strong flowing currents, you can try the rivers Bräkneån and Vierydsån only a few kilometers drive from cottages.
