Art, architecture, design, and fashion. Scandi cool in Stockholm is fantastic, but the Swedish capital is more than a mere busy center. With numerous islands – some of them deserted – and rich wildlife, the archipelago offers a unique opportunity to be in contact with the best mother nature has to offer.

This kayaking trip is all you need to get up close and personal with Stockholm’s natural wonders. It is your chance to have a peaceful and relaxing time spiced with a bit of adventure.

We depart at 9:00 a.m. from our headquarters, just 10 minutes south of Stockholm by metro. Here you meet your guide, collect the kayaks, and go through some basic techniques and safety tips.

After that, we get into the car and head to a charming village called Dalarö. During our half-hour(ish) driving, we have the chance to see some lovely Swedish red huts discreetly placed among the pines.

In Dalarö, we jump in the kayaks to start our adventure. Paddling in and out, we explore different islands throughout the day. Don’t worry if you have little to no experience. You will have plenty of time to rest if you want.

At about noon, we have a break for lunch on a deserted island. Your guide makes a campfire and prepares a traditional Swedish meal. Here, you can take your time to rest and eat in complete peace. All you can hear are the swell of the Baltic and the singing birds.

At the end of the afternoon, we paddle back towards our starting point. This time, we meander through some of the wildest parts of Stockholm. Every turn surprises you with a new show of beauty.

Back at our headquarters, we have a chance to relax in our lovely sauna while we think back to the best moments of our adventure.

By the end of our tour, we can’t help but think the day passed a little too fast. All we can do now is take our feeling of “I want more” back to the buzz of the city.

We had a fantastic day kayaking, our group were great and our guide was really friendly and helpful. The island we stopped on for food was picturesque and our cooked meal was delicious! If you like water and a fun time, I’d highly recommend this trip, well worth the money!
