What you'll do

Let's do some kayaking together to discover amazing Stockholm Archipelago by kayak! We 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'll adjust the route depending on the weather, especially wind direction and your kayaking skills. If you are beginner we will start with some introduction to sea kayaking and paddling technique. We will paddle in the very heart of Stockholm Archipelago and will try to show you some of my favourite places and hidden gems. On the one hand, just right next to kayak center there is amazing Bogesundslandets Nature Reserve with outstanding nature and plenty of wildlife! On the other hand there is a lively island Vaxholm which is known as a capital of archipelago. In the middle of the trip we will look for nice place to land for a break. We'll end the trip after about 3 hours in the same place where we started. Trip is beginners friendly although normal physical condition is required . We are happy to share some basic kayaking knowledge! More advanced paddlers are welcome as well!

Milena was super friendly and was very informative about the archipelago and paddling. Suitable for all abilities. Magical location, great fika and relaxing experience - especially in their sauna with a beautiful view.

We were lucky to have been able to book this tour with Milena in the middle of October, when most other kayaking tours had already closed for the season. With so many islands in the archipelago, I definitely recommend having a guided tour instead of just trying to go out on your own. Milena provided all the equipment we needed and taught us a lot about the archipelago, history, and Swedish culture. I could feel her passion about kayaking and nature, and it was an awesome experience overall.

I would highly recommend this experience to anyone travelling to Stockholm. Milena is an expert on all things kayaking and an excellent guide. There are thousands of islands to explore and Milena knows how to make the experience perfect. She provided all the kayaking equipment and there's fika halfway through.
