What people are saying about Stockholm

It was raining a lot, but it was still a lot of fun! Our guide (Ruben) was easygoing, relaxed and friendly, he told us a lot about the archipelago and also about the animal life in the forests along the way - and even surprised us with a coffee and biscuits on the water. The tour was international (Switzerland, France, Germany), which was not an obstacle despite only rudimentary language skills, because everyone was able to communicate in English. Unfortunately, the promised photos (should come by mail) have not yet arrived.

A really nice experience, even if in summer (at least early July) there is no romantic sunset at this time (17.00-20.00) As far as I can tell, good boats and a really nice guide (Mikael from Poland) who is always on the concerns of the group have been addressed. The "trial trip" made us want to do more kayaking in the archipelago. I think that the area around Vaxholm can give more impressions than in Stockholm and the immediate surroundings - but that's just a guess.

We took an evening 2.5 hour kayak outing with Michal. It was so refreshing and relaxing. My group of four really enjoyed the workout and the conversation. The Baltic Sea is gorgeous. Thank you to our wonderful guide, Michal.

Thanks to Ruben, he did a great training, introduction and learning for us as newcomers in Kayaking. The tour was great, nice round in the Archipel.

Very good experience! A very nice guide… the barbecue is plentiful! I recommend
