Around Möja by kayak

Möja’s archipelago
Length: ~100 km
Time: 6 – 7 days
Level: intermediate / advanced


Proposal for more advanced week trip to outer archipelago. Möja lies just where the mid-archipelago meets the outer-archipelago’s unique nature. Large parts of the archipelago is included in the nature reserve of Storö-Bockö-Lökaö, known as the “Möja reserve”, making kayaking a particularly special experience. With its meandering canals, narrow straits and exciting small islands close to each other, the region is highly valued.

People have lived here since Viking times, and Möja is still a lively island all year round. Fresh water is available at many places. And the sauna on the eastern side of Ostholmen is well-worth a visit.

It is recommended that you and fellow paddlers have experience in sea kayaking. Part of this route leads through areas exposed of the wind and sea conditions. Main islands are operated by regular Waxholmsbolaget ferries. In the summer time you may expect high water traffic passing by Vaxholm and the main waterway for bigger vessels. 

*You should always adjust the route to your (and your friends) kayaking skills, experience as well as sea and weather conditions.
