Join this amazing kayak adventure!
After going through all of the gear, maps and techniques, we'll set out on our multiple day kayak tour. To get the feel of it, we'll start in a safe harbor, paddling between two cliffs to avoid the headwind and waves. We'll stay near the water's edge for a while, and then will be time for a lunch.
We'll be able to see many of the islands we will visit in the coming days after a short hike to a lookout. We'll keep paddling and making our way towards the island clusters and perhaps even see some swimming deer! We'll set our camp in the late afternoon/early evening and enjoy the rhythmic sound of the sea, birds, and the silence. We'll share a campfire supper that we cooked together. We'll be about to tell stories later, but not before getting back in the kayaks to watch the sunset from the water!
On the next day, get ready for another exciting adventure! After a healthy breakfast, we will eagerly set out once again. We'll arrive at yet another group of islands after crossing a short stretch of open sea. The never-ending changes in the surroundings never seem to get old. We'll come across swans, white-tailed eagles, and other interesting birds along the road.
The 3-day trip means that we spend the 2nd day completely outdoors, something you won't experience on the 2-day trip: no transfers, meeting points, restaurant meals or hotels. Instead we'll wake up & go to sleep by the sound of the sea. We can paddle out further to visit wilder islands, more rugged islands. We'll enjoy all of our meals in nature using different outdoor cooking techniques. Of course, we won't paddle the same way back but explore new areas instead, returning to the starting point from a different direction. Once we've unpacked our belongings we'll drop you off in Stockholm, and leave you with memories for a lifetime.

We were so happy with our hike. Ben, our guide, made it really special for us. He's very knowledgeable, he knew wild fruits and plants, mushrooms, and was as excited as we were with the hike! We hike on and off-trail, picked lots of berries on the way, went to a couple of lakes, had lunch around a campfire and had an amazing time. I recommend this to anyone keen on experiencing nature in Sweden.
