Kayak / canoe tour through the inner part of archipelago
Length: ~25 km
Time: 2 days kayak or canoe trip with the wild camp overnight in the woods
Level: beginners and family friendly


Discover the beauty of inner archipelago by kayak or canoe. 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 among others: oystercatchers, grey heron, lapwing, cormorant, seagulls.

Sheltered water, without traffic of ferries and bigger vessels are beginners friendly and will be perfect choice for family kayaking adventure with wild camping in the woods or on remote island. There are few nice camping and fika spots to make a break for picnic, swimming and forest hiking. In the middle of the summer you can pick up lots of blueberries.

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