C’était une expérience unique pour notre famille qui pratique habituellement le kayak au soleil( à Mayotte). L’équipement intégral de qualité nous a permis de rester au chaud tout au long de la randonnée, même les enfants n’ont pas du tout eu froid! Nous avons beaucoup apprécié la compagnie de Milena et Andrew, très attentionnés avec les enfants, ils les ont impliqué tout au long de la randonnée. La pause boisson chaude et gateaux a été apprécié par tous! Ils nous ont conseillé un excellent restaurant à Vaxholm, Hamnkrogen, et nous ont conseillé des ballades sur place. Ils nous ont mème gentiment déposé. N’hésitez pas, vous passerez un excellent moment!
