As someone who is a fan of kayaking in the summer months, I was at first skeptical of doing so in the winter However, I was very thankfully proven wrong. Not only are the islands of the archipelago absolutely breathtaking- I would paint them if I knew how to (so a photo will have to do for now)- but the guides themselves are excellent too. Milena was able to provide guidance, information and also set the pace for our expedition Having a guide made the experience far more cohesive, enjoyable and provided a sense of safety. She encouraged us to learn to navigate, disembark from kayaks on our own, and introduced the time-honored tradition of sitting fika to us. The equipment is obviously top of the line, and the experience is appropriate for even beginning kayakers.

This experience was really original and our guide, Andy, was very prepared, professional and friendly. The prepartion before the trip was perfect: to be ready with thermals. After we got well covered we were not so cold and paddling helped us keeping warm. It was nice to hear regarding the nature, history and culture especially of Vaxholm archipelago. The views in the middle of the water with snow surrounding it was one of a kind. The fika completed the experience with some hot chocolate, tea and chokladbollar. Finally, really recommended for people that love and know kayak already from summer experiences. It will give you new perspectives and an unforgettable winter view. Thank you

Definitely recommend this experience! Andy is a great guide with lots of knowledge about the region. My girlfriend and I enjoyed the interesting conversations with him. The group is also small, so it remains intimate.

Brilliant activity to do whilst in the Stockholm area! Milena was such a great guide and was on such a personable level that made the experience even better, cannot highly recommend enough! Thank you Milena.

Fantastic experience. Despite the cold and rainy weather, the activity was terrific. Both of our instructors were lovely and excellent. Love the Fika also ;)
