 Kayak tour Stockholm: what to see?

Environment:  You can expect a varying scenery consisting of forest covered mainland, mazes of rocky islands, crossings of open sea and hidden bays to relax. Beautiful sunsets during the evenings and waters smooth as mirrors during early mornings.
Wildlife: The most spectacular bird on this kayak tour is without a doubt the white tailed eagle. Other spectacular wildlife are swimming deer / moose that we sometimes encounter, moving from island to island, curious seals, and a large amount of other bird life.

 Day program

This is an example kayak tour. Your guide customizes the day according to the weather and skill of the group.

Day one: After going through all of the gear, maps and techniques we set out on our multiple day kayak tour. We start off in a sheltered bay, paddling between two cliffs to avoid head wind and small waves and get the hang of it. We stay close to the shore, and after some hours it’s time for lunch. After a short hike to a viewpoint, we can see many of the islands that we will visit during the following days. We continue paddling and move towards the island groups. Maybe we’ll even spot some swimming deer! During late afternoon / early evening we make camp and enjoy the rhythmical sound of the sea, birds and the absence of everything else.

Day two: Rise and shine for yet another day of adventure! After a healthy breakfast we eagerly set out once again. We cross a short stretch of open sea and arrive to yet another group of islands. The ever changing environment never seems to bore. On the way we meet swans, white tailed eagles and more curious birds. We pick any island for lunch and do the same in the evening if it’s a three day kayak tour. We can fish, swim, nap or just hang around camp before hitting the sheets (or sleeping bags) once more.

Optional, day three: The last day of the kayak tour in Stockholm archipelago has finally but unfortunately come. We don’t paddle the same way back, but explore new areas while we head towards the starting point, coming from a different direction. Once we’ve unpacked our belongings we drop you off in Stockholm, and leave you with memories for a lifetime.
