Canoe boats

Canoe is stable, easy to get in and out, and easy to get along with packing. It is also an excellent boat for fishing. Our canoe boats are designed for 2 adults with extra space in the middle for child, dog or camping equipment. Canoe is an open boat designed to paddle close to the land, through sheltered waters of inner archipelago. If you are planning to paddle further out to explore some of remote islands, consider one of our expedition sea kayaks. We recommend it especially if you go out for more than 2 days.

  • A canoe is not equipped with rudder for steering (like most of our kayaks) so you need to have good cooperation with your paddling partner.
  • A canoe boat is more difficult to maneuver on a windy day.
  • A canoe is designed to be completely open on the top, unlike a kayak where you sit inside.
  • With a canoe you can explore sheltered waters and bays of inner Stockholm Archipelago.
  • Open-top design makes getting in and out much easier comparing to the kayak (thing to consider while paddling with dog or kids).
  • Canoes are bulkier and heavier, they take more effort to paddle and often requiring two people.


Sea kayaks and expedition kayaks

Sea kayaks are designed for challenging sea conditions which may happen when you are paddling further out in archipelago (think about wind, waves etc.). Our expedition sea kayaks are equipped with rudder / skeg system which makes it easier to maneuver in the wind. If you are planning to explore some of remote islands of middle and outer archipelago we strongly recommend our expedition kayaks. Double kayaks are extremely stable and great especially for beginners. Even when one of you gets tired you keep going because you will share paddling together.

  • Sea kayak is sit inside designed that means the paddler’s legs and lower body are situated within the hull of the kayak and are covered with spray deck to protect from water.
  • Sea kayak is designed to paddle through open and choppy water.
  • Sea kayaks are faster and thanks to rudder or skeg system and are much easier to maneuver in windy conditions.
  • You'll pack your camping gear into closed hatches so it stays dry even when it rains.
  • Tracking — moving in a straight line — is much easier in a kayak.
  • With the right skills and equippment you can paddle kayak all year round as it's much warmer when you sit inside.
