Join us for an exciting winter kayaking adventure at Skärgårdens Kanotcenter, where our experience speaks for itself in handling special conditions! 'Skärgården' is the Swedish word for 'archipelago,' and that's exactly where your winter adventure begins. Paddle under the guidance of our professional kayaking guide, who will lead you through every step of winter kayaking: from slipping into a cozy drysuit to a safety briefing for cold water conditions, and, of course, kayaking! Our journey takes us through the heart of Stockholm’s Archipelago, with Vaxholm as its archipelagic capital, weaving between charming islands and picturesque Swedish cottages. Pass by the historical Vaxholm fortress that once guarded Stockholm and discover Bogesunds nature reserve and its wildlife. Enjoy the scenic winter views, learn about local life and history through fascinating stories and find yourself immersed in the tranquility of nature, all within just a 30-minute journey from Stockholm. In true Swedish fashion, warm up with a Swedish Fika at the end of your trip. Are you up for the full archipelago experience? Consider our traditional wood-burning sauna and a refreshing cold dip in the sea after your winter kayaking adventure.
