One of the instructors will go through everything you need to know about kayaking and where to go. On the water, explore the many canals of Stockholm. One of the more popular tours is to go around the islands Långholmen and Reimerisholme. Exploring Stockholm is more fun from a kayak since this city consists of islands. See the City Hall and parts of the Old Town. Choose between a single-person kayak or a 2-person kayak for the chance to sit close to your friend or loved one. For the latter option, the person in the front sets the pace, and the person in the back controls the steering.

My boyfriend and I came to Stockholm for a week escape and were really excited to find this adventure. Andy and the team were so lovely and the kyaking was an unforgettable experience. I’d never been kyaking before and was quite nervous but felt so at ease by the wonderful team and excellent training. We cannot recommend a better way of seeing the Archipelago nor a nicer group to do it with!

Fantastic tour!! Callum was very entertaining and the stories were interesting The entrance to the tunnel at the end of the tour was dark and thrilling If your visiting Stockholm this tour is a must!!

This is all about the guide for me, think the experience would vary greatly depending on them. Ours was Callum, very entertaining, stayed in character throughout

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and personable. He makes the tour varied and humorous without sacrificing the "scary effect". Thanks very much!

Collum is a very enthusiastic and theatrical guide who gets everyone involved with his stories.
