CUSTOMER FAQ

1. What weather can I expect?

Our multi-day kayak tours are only available during the summer months, when the weather is generally pleasant with temperatures ranging from 16°C to 28°C. However, since we are paddling into the open ocean, the conditions can be quite variable. It's not uncommon to encounter both wind and rain during our trips. To ensure that you have a comfortable and enjoyable experience, we strongly recommend checking the local weather forecast close to your tour date. Based on the forecast, please bring appropriate clothing. Preparing for the weather will help you fully enjoy the beauty and excitement of ocean kayaking with us.

2. What should I pack?

Let us start with the most important rule, PACK LIGHT! Camping equipment and food comes first, then everything else. However, you have to stay warm/dry during the trip and you need a full change of clothes in case of a worst-case scenario. Please find below our recommendation list, which has to be adjusted regarding weather conditions (please check before you pack) and personal preferences. PADDLING CLOTHING • Swim Trunks / Shorts • Long-sleeve Top / T-Shirt • Waterproof-Rain Jacket • Hat: Baseball or Wide-brim • Sunglasses • Water shoes or sandals (recommended) • Gloves: Bicycling or kayak gloves (recommended) CAMPING CLOTHING • Synthetic Undershorts • Synthetic Fleece Long Underwear, Sleeping Socks • Trousers • Fleece Jacket • Camp Shirt • Shoes / Socks PERSONAL ITEMS • Insect Repellent • Sunscreen, UV Lip Balm, • Toiletries • Small Towel (microlaser) • Reusable water bottle, please think eco-friendly!

3. Do I need watershoes?

Please note that you will step into the ocean when you enter and exit the kayak. We recommend some kind of sandals or water shoes, as it can get slippery. There are many cheap options in stores like XXL or Decathlon available. However, don't feel the need to buy water shoes just for this experience if you don't plan to use them again. Our kayaking adventure works just fine without water shoes as well!

4. Where can I leave my luggage?

We have no dedicated storage space for larger luggage (suitcases e.g. ). However, you can take smaller backpacks (daypacks) directly with you into the kayak (dry compartment). Otherwise, we recommend to use one of the dedicated luggage box providers in Stockholm. Recommendation: Luggage Hero T-Centralen https://lughero.com/StockholmNatureActivities

5. How to choose the best kayak?

When deciding whether to use a single or tandem kayak, consider your experience level and what you're looking for in your kayaking adventure. We typically provide tandem kayaks by default, as they cater well to various skill levels and promote a shared experience. Tandem kayaks are particularly suitable for beginners or those who prefer the company and added stability that comes with a two-person setup. Additionally, all our kayaks are Sea-Kayaks equipped with a rudder, enhancing steering and control, making them ideal for navigating our coastal waters. If you have a preference for a single kayak, please let us know in advance so we can accommodate your request. This allows us to ensure that everyone has the best possible experience on the water, tailored to their skills and comfort level.

6. Where do we paddle (what area) ?

We primarily explore the central part of the Stockholm Archipelago. Our starting points are flexible, adjusted based on wind and weather conditions to ensure optimal safety and the best possible experience for all participants. The vast number of islands in the archipelago offers numerous opportunities for encounters and exploration. Depending on the day’s conditions, we carefully select the most scenic and suitable routes, ensuring each kayaking trip is unique. For those interested in extended adventures.

7. Our commitment to sustainability?

As we navigate through pristine waters, we maintain a strong commitment to eco-friendly practices. This includes managing natural resources wisely, respecting wildlife habitats, and adhering to 'leave no trace' principles during our trips. By kayaking with us, you contribute to the conservation of the archipelago's natural beauty. Our approach ensures not only a remarkable kayaking experience but also helps preserve the Stockholm Archipelago as a cherished environment for future generations.
