Stockholm: Archipelago Winter Kayaking and Fika Experience

1. Stockholm: Archipelago Winter Kayaking and Fika Experience

Your adventure begins at Skärgårdens Kanotcenter, where you’ll meet your guide and take part in a safety briefing. Your guide will help you to make some adjustments to the kayak if needed, and will also discuss the route. Once you’re familiar with the basic paddling and safety techniques, it's time to hop into your sea kayak to explore the winter archipelago from the perspective of the water. Follow your guide as you explore the beauty of Vaxholm and admire typical Swedish architecture. With its famous fortress that was used to defend Stockholm and traditional fishing cottages in the harbor, it's the perfect place to get the full archipelago experience. On the other side you'll find one of Stockholm's largest nature reserves. Whilst kayaking and exploring the islands from the water, listen to local stories about the area, which was once home to Vikings over 1,000 years ago. Soak up the scenic winter views and feel immersed in the tranquility, despite being just 30-minutes from Stockholm. At the end of an unforgettable experience, it’s time to begin the journey back to the starting point, admiring the last of the views along the way before warming up over a cup of coffee.

What people are saying about Stockholm Archipelago

My boyfriend and I came to Stockholm for a week escape and were really excited to find this adventure. Andy and the team were so lovely and the kyaking was an unforgettable experience. I’d never been kyaking before and was quite nervous but felt so at ease by the wonderful team and excellent training. We cannot recommend a better way of seeing the Archipelago nor a nicer group to do it with!

A great experience to discover the archipelagos of Stockholm! The suits protected very well from the cold, and the guided tour allowed us to learn more about the surroundings, in particular about the possible activities to do to visit the region. I don't regret at all having done it in winter, the landscape was breathtaking. I 100% recommend this winter activity!

We really enjoyed our kayaking! Andy was a great guide and the gear provided was amazing! I was worried about being cold but wasn’t at all. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone looking to explore Sweden in a unique way! It was a great experience and I would love to come back in summer!

Amazing experience! The weather was a bit unfriendly (snow and wind), but the adventure was worth it! And you don't need to be too fit for it (which is good! :)

Amazing experience, wonderful landscape and nice guide
