About The Archipelago Kayaking Tour:
Kayaking in the Archipelago is an exciting and easy-going day trip involving a journey around the deserted islands that comprise the Stockholm Archipelago. You and your group will be accompanied by an experienced guide who knows the waters and their history.
There will be occasional stops on the unspoiled shores to prepare meals and even have a swim in the crystal clear waters. Some of the islands feature seasonal colonies of birds, and if you arrive at the right time they serve as a treat for any birdwatcher/nature photographer.
All of Stockholm Adventures' Archipelago kayaking trips depart from their kayaking base on Runmarö island. To get to the island take the 433 or 434 bus from Slussen Metro Station at 08:48. The trip takes around 45 minutes and you will be dropped off at the port of Stavsnäs, east of Stockholm.
After arriving at Stavsnäs take the white/blue taxi boat (fare included) that waits behind the petrol station (Preem). Jump on it immediately after disembarking from the bus as it leaves for Runmarö island at 09:35. The tour leader will be waiting on you and your party (if any) at the jetty on Runmarö island.
If you need to call the tour leader at any point a contact number will be available on your tour ticket voucher. Additionally, this contains the instructions listed above.
Before setting off into the Archipelago the issuing of essential kit will take place followed by a short demonstration on paddling techniques and kayak control. The basics are quick and easy to get a hold of, and in no time even complete beginners will be set to do some off-shore exploration.
Although essential equipment will be issued by the guides, Stockholm Adventures does recommend bringing along the following: sports sandals, rain/wind gear, swimsuit, towel, long-sleeves, cap, sunglasses, sunscreen, water bottle and extra vacuum packed dry clothes in case of wet weather.
