Full description

Discover the Stockholm archipelago, just 45 minutes outside of Stockholm. Explore by kayak an environment formed of about 30,000 islands located in the calmness of the Baltic Sea where the surface of the water is overhung by domes made of rocks and trees creating a unique natural maze. Begin the tour, by meeting your guide at 9 AM in the South of Stockholm. Drive together to Dalarö, a charming little village, from where you'll embark on your kayak adventure. On the way, admire the magnificent little wooden red houses which have been discreetly built among the pines.

Spend the entire day exploring different islands from the water. Stop on one of the deserted islands for a filling lunch cooked on an open fire. Take time here to rest, accompanied by the swell of the Baltic and the singing birds. At the end of the afternoon, paddle back towards Dalarö where you started from. Go around the other islands and get the opportunity to see other fantastic things on the more wild part of the archipelago. Keep your eyes peeled for circling sea eagles searching for prey.

Try to spot numerous species of migratory birds including different types of goose or the famous great cormorant flying over the horizon heading north. At the end of the tour, return to Stockholm filled with memories and replenished by the fresh air.

    The best activity of our trip! A dream come true! Oscar, our guide was fantastic! He explained and showed us lots of things from the surroundings, villages, islands, transportation, vegetation and wild animals. We saw deers and swans ! We ate lunch in an uninhabited island, Oscar himself made a fire and cook and prepared a delicious food (vegan for me). After lunch he made us a tour around the island and showed us the different kind of trees, fruits and moss. We returned by a different route right in time, not without first racing to the finish line! ;-)

    Wonderful exciting trip through a very secluded beautiful Swedish nature. Kayaking and swimming in the Baltic Sea was fantastic! Shams was our guide. He was great! Very knowledgeable and fun! Thank you for stopping at the second secret beach, it was very much appreciated even though it got us back an hour late. I think the trip would have felt a little short without that second stop. Very well organized! Glad we had that experience! Thank you!

    We had a really nice day. Perfect to see something other than the Swedish city. The tour is absolutely suitable for beginners. Oskar our Quide was in a great mood and very competent. All very uncomplicated with transport from the organizer's office to the starting point and back. Great, well equipped and comfortable kayaks. Procedure (of course this can vary for you): After the transport to the starting point, we prepared our kayaks, adjusted the seats, etc. and received a short briefing and then we started, we drove the kayaks along various islands and have a few of the "typical Swedish red wooden houses". We all took a break together on a small, deserted island and were able to go swimming while Oskar prepared the meal at the campfire. It was a simple but very tasty meal. Then we sailed back. All in all we felt very comfortable.
