Rentals and self-guided trips FAQs

In Sweden we say ‘there’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes’. You will be surprised how fun it is to paddle in rain. Make sure you wear the right outdoor clothing (no jeans or cotton).

During thunderstorms or very strong winds we may have to re-schedule or cancel activities for safety reasons.

Unless you are an experienced paddler and know how to do the self-rescue, we recommend you do not paddle alone.

If you do not know how to do solo re-entry after a capsize, we recommend to paddle with a friend or join a guided tour. You can also rent a stand up paddleboard by yourself.

Our kayak center is located about 30 min by car from Stockholm and it is easy to get here with public transport. Take subway T14 towards Mörby Centrum, on station Danderyds sjukhus go to bus terminal F and switch to bus 670. Our nearest bus stop is 100m away and is called Engarn.
