Its texture is soft and smooth and it has an agreeable sweetness and a salty scent, just like most other types of shellfish. Mussels are bursting with nutrition and can still be enjoyed with a clear environmental conscience. Because mussels are good for the ocean. They purify the water and reduce over-fertilisation, and in my opinion they are also a good example of really smart fast food.
Janne Bark bought and restored the old clock tower (Klocktornet in Swedish) a couple years back. The clock tower is located by the water in Lyckorna in Ljungskile, Uddevalla. The perfect location for Janne’s big passion – nature and wildlife. Janne offers several nature activities from his clock tower – the favorite one being their Mussel Safari.

What did you see and do on your trip?
On the Friday, I met my sister, who lives in Corsica, at Paris-Beauvais Airport and we took the flight to Gothenburg. Our first stop was the coastal town, Lysekil (an hour’s drive north of Gothenburg on the west coast). On the road we enjoyed the landscape. A few minutes before arriving, our GPS told us to take a “road” on the water. Indeed, at the end of the road we went onto a boat that took us to Lysekil. We put our suitcases at the lovely Strandflickornas Havshotell and took the ferry to the island of Fiskebäckskil, where a table was reserved for us at a restaurant. I’m not very familiar with seafood so it was a great introduction for me, and it was really delicious. At the end of the feast we returned to our lovely room. I really loved the houses on the island and felt like I was in a movie. It was magical.
