What you'll do

We are going for winter kayaking adventure to discover amazing Stockholm Archipelago by kayak. Winter kayak tour around Vaxholm is a memorable and purely magical experience. Vaxholm is known as a capital of archipelago and kayaking is the best way to explore this wonderful place. Paddling is possible almost all year round. The archipelago is very lively in summer however during autumn and winter you will experience luxury of having it all to yourself.

We will meet in kayak center in Resarö (close to Vaxholm). First we will help you to adjust your kayak. Then after short safety briefing we can jump into kayaks and paddle into the wild of archipelago. We leave Engarn behind us and glide along the Resarö coastline towards Vaxholm or Bogesund Nature Reserve, depending on wind. Area around Vaxholm is among the most beautiful places to paddle. Admire amazing swedish nature and local architecture along the way and listen to local stories. Together we will enjoy the fresh, clear air and the view over archipelago that goes in pale tones. The silence will be broken only by the splash of water from paddles. Soak up the scenic winter views and feel immersed in the tranquility, despite being just 30 minutes from Stockholm.

We provide drysuit and warm drinks to keep you warm and dry during kayaking tour.
Other things to note

We had an amazing winter kayaking experience with Milena and Andrew! We were two kayak novices and very quickly felt safe and comfortable. They have a great knowledge of the area meaning they could constantly teach us about the islands we were exploring. Already planning to return for a summer experience!

We really enjoyed our time kayaking. we were both initially nervous about the trip with the overcloud and cold but that quickly went away when we had our gear on and some reassurance from Milena. it was so lovely spending time with her and hearing all her stories and excitement about the nature. sincerely magical and rewarding experience.

Five stars, no doubts. Even in the beginning I was not fully confortable with the boat because of my short skills Milena managed to show me the required moves so I could fully enjoy the experience. I would recomen big time the experience either in winter or in summer. The place is magic and Milena and his friend were just simply perfect. Thanks a lot for sharing your world with me. Eskerrik asko!!

We had such a magical experience winter kayaking! My boyfriend and I went in a double kayak, and had so much fun. The scenery was stunning and Andrew (Milena’s partner) was a fantastic teacher. Would highly recommend
