Kayaking in the archipelago with wild camping overnight
Are you looking for adventures? Then, you are on the right page, the archipelago offers a perfect scenery for a few days in the wild! Paddle in search of paradise, enjoy some delicious meals, and camp in tents on smooth sun-warmed rock slabs on your “own” wild island.
The first day, you will be welcomed at Runmarö’s jetty by your kayak guide. After trying out the equipment, getting comfortable with your kayak and a short training session, the adventure begins!
Paddling is not the whole issue of the trip; you will also discuss history, flora and fauna of the archipelago with the guide, enjoy nice evenings together with the other members of the group, take a swim when you feel like it, try to catch fish for dinner… And not least important, have fun!
The tours do not follow a fixed route and nature-joy goes before distance. The route is planned after reviewing the weather forecast each day. Most of the time, you will paddle to the outer “skerries”, a true wilderness area, and camp on uninhabited and remote islands, which are frequented just by few people. If you have always dreamed of sleeping under the stars, it is time to do it!
If the weather is with us, we will paddle leisurely to Bullerö Island, far out toward the open sea. The island was the inspiration of the famous Swedish artist Bruno Liljefors. There, you will have the possibility to visit a little museum and picturesque village before paddling on to the next remote camping spot.
The food for the entire trip is provided. You will have the chance to taste and enjoy some typical Swedish food. All meals will be prepared on ordinary outdoor stoves.
You do not need any previous kayak experience and much muscle-power to enjoy these trips, although some experience of outdoor life may come in handy. Naturally, safety always comes first, and your guide will make sure that all participants are at ease and know how to deal with the wind and the waves before crossing open stretches.
The last day, you will come back to Runmarö in the late afternoon.
