Stockholm: Self Guided Kayak Adventure

1. Stockholm: Self Guided Kayak Adventure

The kayak dock is located right in the heart of the city, just 400 m from the Adventure Café, so you will start your self-guided tour in a prime location. Enjoy a leisurely sightseeing paddle that allows you a fabulous vantage point as you look in on the city from your kayak. Stockholm is lovingly known as “The Venice of the North” as it is situated over 14 islands and linked by 57 bridges, so exploring by kayak is a great way to see the city. Even better, paddle at your own pace on a self-guided tour. You'll be provided a brief introduction on kayaking and all the equipment needed for your adventure, then you can set sail on your adventure.

Stockholm: Self-Guided 1 or 2-Person Kayak Tour

2. Stockholm: Self-Guided 1 or 2-Person Kayak Tour

Arrive at the green island Långholmen (Södermalm) and be greeted by a professional instructor. Leave all unnecessary things at the rental and collect all of the equipment, such as lifejackets, and drybags. 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.

What people are saying about Södermalm

The young instructor assigned to us was clearly new and finished our briefing in 5mins. However, for a later batch, a senior guy gave detailed and correct instructions. But, there's nothing to worry, the learning curve isn't too steep. We initially went round in circles for first few minutes. But, soon figured out ourselves how to go forward and steer. Excellent guidance on route selection and help in getting in and out of the kayak by the other staff members. Remember to carry water to drink on the kayak, you will get thirsty. 2 hours is more than adequate to do a full circuit of both Långholmen and the smaller Reimersholme islands. The route is quite beautiful especially in the smaller canal sections. A waterproof action camera or case for your smartphone is highly recommended for taking pictures along the way. If the weather's good, there will be lot of private boats creating waves. Be wary of those! We almost got turned over by a big one! Happy Kayaking!

I received good instruction before heading out and a friendly welcome from the instructors, I enjoyed being out on the water during a nice day. It was great to see sights from the water and felt relaxing to sit on the water. I would recommend this during the summer and spring months.

Punctual at the meeting point, very good instruction, very good kayak! I will rent a kayak again on my next visit to Stockholm.

Informative and very nice response. Easy to paddle stable kayaks. Very nice tour around Långholmen and Reimersholme.

Was great fun. We paddled around the island of Kungsholmen once. Great experience, gladly again at any time.
