Rent a kayak or canoe and paddle through maginificent Bogesund – a place where for about 1000 years ago Vikings were living. Now it’s nature reserve with green meadows, old oak trees and farms with horses. Paddling silently by narrow fjord is great chance to spot beavers. Don’t forget to look around. An osprey or a white-tailed sea eagle may just fly above your head. You can also spot other coastal birds including oystercatchers, grey heron, lapwing, cormorant, seagulls. You can extend this route by paddling around Nibbleviken.
Sheltered water, without traffic of ferries and bigger vessels are beginners friendly and will be perfect choice for family kayaking trip with outdoor picnic. There are nice places to make a break for BBQ, swimming spots and even hiking trails. It’s worth taking a break to stretch your legs, hike and perhaps pick berries in the forest.
Plan your route according to your skills and weather forecast. You are responsible for conducting proper behaviour according to the traffic rules.
