Stockholm Archipelago Tour by Kayak
When exploring the heart of the city, it's easy to forget that Stockholm is part of an archipelago of around 30,000 islands. Get a better perspective on this aspect of the region by embarking on a kayaking tour. Paddle the Baltic Sea around small island groups, taking in the views, and abundant birdlife and ancient fortresses, along the way. Make a stop for an included lunch on a private island, as well as a fika break for coffee and pastries.
What to Expect

We start off with a short introduction about the archipelago kayak day's program. A 45 minute drive by air-conditioned minivan will take you away from the city and into the archipelago.

We start off with some sea kayaking instructions and safety precautions. Shortly after we're out in the Baltic Sea! We'll paddle through both small island groups and crossing open sea. The present birdlife is very rich, and swans, eagles and many other birds are seen on basically every trip. We'll pick out our own island and enjoy restaurant prepared, organic lunch.

From bird colonies to ancient fortresses, there are many sights to visit along the way. Maybe we decide to enjoy some 'fika' on the way, roping all kayaks together. 

Upon return we briefly conclude the day and your guide will bring you back to the meeting point safely.
