Möja

Quick details

Discover traditional, idyllic archipelago island lined with small villages and well-preserved harbors. There is still fishing and farming practiced here.

Sea kayaking 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. 

Plan your route according to your skills and weather forecast. You are responsible for conducting proper behaviour according to the traffic rules.

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.
