What You Can Expect

Kayaking Tour of Stockholm Archipelago

Kayaking, Stockholm Archipelago, Sweden

Take the morning bus from the Slussen metro station in Stockholm to the small port of Stavsnäs Vinterhamn, east of the city. Then take a short taxi boat ride (fare included) to the kayak base on the island Runmarö, where your kayak adventure begins.

Meet your experienced guide to receive a brief safety overview and training session and get fitted with your equipment. Then hop in your kayak and start paddling!

Explore the varied seascape that makes up the Stockholm archipelago, from large, forest-clad islands to small rock outcrops. Some 30,000 islands and skerries make up the archipelago, which spreads 19 miles (30 km) east from Stockholm into the Baltic Sea.

Learn about the archipelago’s history, wildlife and geology from your guide and admire your idyllic surroundings as you paddle past hidden gems that few visitors know about. Arrive at a secluded island, where you’ll stop to swim and have lunch on the sun-drenched rocks.

Then continue paddling at an easy pace past more islands back to your starting inlet on Runmarö. Reward your hard work with fika, a traditional Swedish coffee or tea break with a sweet snack.

Take the taxi boat back to Stavsnäs Vinterhamn and the bus back to Slussen, arriving in the evening.

It was a pleasure to meet Michael (the guide) who capably led us on a 13km route around the beautiful islands. Michael readily shared his local knowledge and engaged us in intelligent conversation throughout the day. Lunch was delicious. A very well planned and executed activity. Thank you Michael!

This isn't really a tour designed for tourists. Everyone else in the group was from around the area. The guide was friendly and helpful, the kayaking was fun for a beginner and the scenery is beautiful. Would have been alot better if I spoke swedish though...
