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!

We really enjoyed our kayaking! Andy was a great guide and the gear provided was amazing! I was worried about being cold but wasn’t at all. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone looking to explore Sweden in a unique way! It was a great experience and I would love to come back in summer!

It was a Great experience, I have never done this actitivity and I am sure I will do it again in summer. Both guides were amazing explaining all the surroundings.

Amazing experience! The weather was a bit unfriendly (snow and wind), but the adventure was worth it! And you don't need to be too fit for it (which is good! :)

Amazing experience, wonderful landscape and nice guide
