Great tour with our guide Johann

We were lucky and had a private tour with our guide Johann. After we were instructed, it started right away. We got shown a lot and had a lot of fun. The sore muscles are gradually becoming noticeable. Sure, with a 3.5 hour tour with a short meal break and sunset included. Thank you for this great experience!

Hard work but very enjoyable

Very different kayak for my husband and I, so we went tandem in the end. The waves were sometimes hard work and 1 member had a capsize, but the guide was excellent and was very quick to execute an experienced rescue. Very much enjoyed this tour and recommend if you have kayaked before

It was exactly what I wanted!

The boats and gear are superb. Instructor is deep and cool. The route is short, does not need much sweat. Sight seeng is wonderfull. So for the starters or if you don't have much time (as in my case) it's perfect. You get acquainted with the kayak and you enjoy the beauty of Stockholm from the water
