Stockholm: Archipelago Winter Kayaking and Fika Experience

1. Stockholm: Archipelago Winter Kayaking and Fika Experience

Your adventure begins at Skärgårdens Kanotcenter, where you’ll meet your guide and take part in a safety briefing. Your guide will help you to make some adjustments to the kayak if needed, and will also discuss the route. Once you’re familiar with the basic paddling and safety techniques, it's time to hop into your sea kayak to explore the winter archipelago from the perspective of the water. Follow your guide as you explore the beauty of Vaxholm and admire typical Swedish architecture. With its famous fortress that was used to defend Stockholm and traditional fishing cottages in the harbor, it's the perfect place to get the full archipelago experience. On the other side you'll find one of Stockholm's largest nature reserves. Whilst kayaking and exploring the islands from the water, listen to local stories about the area, which was once home to Vikings over 1,000 years ago. Soak up the scenic winter views and feel immersed in the tranquility, despite being just 30-minutes from Stockholm. At the end of an unforgettable experience, it’s time to begin the journey back to the starting point, admiring the last of the views along the way before warming up over a cup of coffee.

What people are saying about Stockholm Archipelago

Our kayaking experience was just wonderful - Teresa was friendly, informative, safe and we felt very comfortable with her. we were very lucky with the weather and explored the surrounding islands which were stunning. We stopped for fika on a beautiful deserted island and travelled at a very leisurely pace. Teresa recommended the ferry rather than the bus and tube back to Stockholm which we really enjoyed! Thankyou Teresa!

We had a great day getting a taste for kayaking in the Archipelago with an excellent guide and delicious fika break which was much needed after the wind got up!

Very nice tour in the archipelago, with a cozy fika on an island. Great guide. Very nice group.

Highly recommended. Very interesting and very beautiful tour.

A great way to see this seaside city from the water.
