Activity description

Leave the city behind you while you explore the wilderness around Stockholm by kayak! Enjoy nature from a different angle! 

This tour is designed as the perfect mix between enjoying the moment and paddling. Forget about the city buzz and come on a peaceful kayaking excursion, only 40 minutes from Stockholm.

This is the perfect family adventure. You can choose to stay overnight (in tents), or just go on a day-trip. 

You’ll paddle past a couple of wide lakes and narrow canyon-like rivers, always surrounded by deep taiga forest. The area also has a quite interesting viking history and physical evidence of their presence!

You'll be able to see some Swedish wildlife, as well. Black throated divers are regularly spotted on the water! Ospreys are also abundance in the area. Wild mammals such as moose and roe dears can be spotted from the water.

Day program: This is an example tour
Your guide customizes the day according to the weather and skill of the group.
You'll paddle gently alongside the shore of the lake. The canoes are not made to go fast but are very stable and comfy which makes this adventure very child-friendly. After a few hours of paddling on blue-green water we’ll stop and unpack our canoes. For the bravest, a dip in the river will be appreciated. You’ll have time for more side adventures such as hiking an easy path to a viewpoint tower from which you can observe the endless forest, and explore more lakes from the canoe.
