Kayaking in Stockholm Archipelago

Stockholm city is built upon 14 islands, and in the archipelago just outside the city you’ll find nearly 30 000 more. Can’t choose what island to visit? Go on a kayak tour with True Nature Sweden to find all the hidden gems.

You’ll start off in the charming seaside village of Dalarö, located only 45 minutes from Stockholm city, and paddle out in the safe company of your group and guide. Watch the varied scenery with rugged nature, rocky cliffs and pristine beaches pass by from the comfy seat of your kayak. The islands of the archipelago all have their own characteristics – some are inhabited all year around with shops, cafés and restaurants, while others are uninhabited with untouched nature to explore. You’ll stop at a deserted island and enjoy a hearty lunch to the rhythmic sound of the waves, while perhaps spotting a sea eagle looking for prey in the sky. If you’re tired from the paddling, why not take a refreshing swim in the Baltic sea before heading back to the mainland.
