Old fishing village about 10 km outside of town accessible by car or bus, even by bicycle. There is even a small beach, water is usually chilly though. There is a café.

In addition to your visit to the smokehouse you can swim in the Baltic Sea änd have an exellent lunch at a café. The "böckling" you should put on a buttered swedish crispbread and enjoy!

The old fishing village of Bönan is a quick car-trip from central Gävle, and if the weather is nice is worth a trip just to go out and see the old fishing-huts, the old lighthouse and take in the sea air.
