DescriptionDay 1: You'll begin by driving to the kayak station for about 45–60 minutes. From there your guide will decide the route, taking into consideration the abilities of the group and weather conditions as they do so. Before the tour starts your guide will provide advanced safety and paddling instruction techniques, after which once you are ready, it will be time to hop into the kayak and start paddling. The first part of the trip requires about 2 hours of paddling. It will then be time for the first lunch break on one of the many islands. Following lunch, the tour continues with about 2 hours of paddling, providing great vantage points over the beauty of the archipelago. There are many picture opportunities on the way before the group stops for a second break and some snacks. When you’re ready you will finish the final paddling part of the day, after which you will search for a camping location for the evening. Day 2: Enjoy your breakfast with some stunning views over the ocean. After breakfast, it’s time to pack the equipment and get back into the kayak. You will then travel for several miles on the water, further out to the edge of the archipelago. This area is completely remote and uninhabited, and following some hours paddling in your kayak the group will stop for lunch on one of the small islands. This will also prove the perfect location to go on a small hike, and on your way back your lunch will be prepared, ready, and waiting for you. From there, it’s time to slowly turn around and look for another fantastic camping spot in the wilderness of the archipelago. As soon as your group finds a camping spot you'll place your tent and relax for a while before dinner preparation starts. Following dinner, feel free to join the group around the campfire where you can share some life stories and spend another night stargazing in the middle of nowhere. Day 3: Your day will begin with some time to embrace the natural scenery as you enjoy your coffee/tea next to the Baltic Sea. When you’re ready, you can get your equipment together and pack your kayak. On the way back to the kayak station, the route goes along an alternative path which features different islands and new scenery to discover. Before heading back to town you will unpack the kayak and all the equipment whilst reminiscing over your 3 days out in nature.
