Our paddling trails take advantage of the endless amounts of water Sweden has to offer. Island archipelagos and countless lakes make Stockholm and its surroundings a haven for those longing to take to the water.

Our trails take place in both Stockholm’s remarkable archipelago; a seemingly endless archipelago of 24,000 glorious islands lying right on Stockholm’s doorstep. Stretching some 80km east of Stockholm deep into the Baltic waters, it formed during the last Ice Age and is today considered to be one of the world’s natural wonders. 

The archipelago trail makes use of sea kayaks, designed for these waters and allow you the chance to admire the archipelago from its best vantage point – the sea. 

Alternatively, visit the county of Sörmland where we take you to the locally treasured Viking waterway from Mariefred to Trosa, passing the dramatic landscape of the Marviken lakes, the long slender Klämmingen lake, and finally the mighty lake Sillen before following the gently flowing river all the way to Trosa.

Alternatively get back to basics and take a tour on the remote Båven lake system to appreciate its natural wilderness environment. The lake is 68km², much of which is sheltered. Days can be spent exploring the many arms and islands by canoe. 

Whichever tour you choose, enjoy the silence and tranquility of a hidden lake, a silence broken only by the gentle splash as your oar meets the calm, clean waters.
