Winter kayaking

3 hour kayak tour with fika

Quick details

Winter kayaking in Stockholm Archipelago is an unforgettable and purely magical experience.

Escape the crowded city center, jump into one of our kayaks and explore archipelago from the best perspective. Area around Vaxholm is one of the most beautiful places to paddle. Enjoy the fresh, clear air and the view over archipelago that goes into pale tones.

Admire the spectacular natural environment, see the picturesque wooden cottages and listen to local stories. Try Swedish fika in the nature and feel the tranquility, despite being just 30 minutes away from Stockholm.

Winter kayaking can be followed by our traditional wood burning sauna and a cold dip in the sea for full archipelago experience.

Winter temperatures vary in Sweden so layers are the key! You will be provided with the drysuit and boots which will keep you dry but you still need good layers under to stay warm. Avoid cotton (and jeans) and seek for synthetic, wool and thermal clothing.

  • Base layer: warm thermal underwear, preferably merino wool (tights and a long sleeve)
  • Middle layer: hiking pants / another tights and a long sleeve fleece
  • 2 pairs of warm socks preferably wool
  • Warm hat
Please don’t wear jewelry, you will have to remove bracelets, watch, earrings and rings before wearing the drysuit.

The highlight of our week - do not miss out! My boyfriend and I took part in this activity and we both agree it was the highlight of our week in Stockholm! I was really nervous having not kayaked before but the tour guides were very good and patient in their teaching of the technique and the trip was incredibly enjoyable. We could not recommend more highly!

Highly Recommend this Fun, Relaxed Kayaking Tour. We only had a small group of 4 but he was very interactive and made sure we understood everything and pointed out some great things about the area. I would highly recommend this trip, and thank you Andy! Will definitely come back for the warm version next time I’m in Stockholm!

It was a beautiful adventure, despite the snow and the wind. It completed our Stockholm experience in the perfect way! Andy is an amazing guy, experienced guide, very entertaining and friendly. The homemade chocolate and the cup of hot tea we enjoyed on the shore mid-tour offered a great taste of the fika culture. Would recommend the whole experience in a heartbeat!

Fantastic opportunity to explore the natural beauty right outside Stockholm! This was such a fantastic opportunity to get out of the city and enjoy the beauty of Sweden and the Stockholm Archipelago. Fika was a lovely stop along the way. If you don't have a car, it is a very easy trip out to the center. Such a lovely experience all around!
