The highlight of my trip!
Jul 2020 • Friends
I spent a week in Stockholm in July 2020 and was lucky enough to kayak through the city centre with a friend who lives locally. I have never been to Stockholm before and I can’t think of a better way to be introduced to the city. The tour was well led and I pleased with how much of the city I got to see, and how close we could get to the Town Hall. I would definitely recommend as a way to see the city

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with others. We're thrilled you enjoyed paddling with us and even more so that you describe it as the highlight of your trip. We also think Stockholm is best seen from a kayak, but then we may be biased! Ha ha! We hope you'll visit again.

Absolute highlight
Jul 2019
We had the pleasure to do a private kayak tour with our guide Camielle, whom we met at Stockholm Adventures' kayak station. After a thorough introduction we took a long round trip with a nice and yummy and nicely decorated picknic at Långholmen island before we paddeled back into the sunset. Camielle was very entertaining and caring, gave a lot of great hints and we enjoyed the trip a lot.

When you take a trip, you might want to book a trip with a group of similar experienced and fit kayakers, so that the faster ones do not need to wait for those who go in circles. With fast paddlers, you see more :-)

Excellent way to appreciate Stockholm with views from its expansive water surroundings
Aug 2019
This is the first time I kayaked and Johan made it simple and easy, with clear instructions and encouragement. The city tour itself is extraordinary, as the water plays such a huge part in this city's life and history. Johan gave us much interesting info of city's past and present. This is an excellent tour; I may repeat this one or book another tour with Stockholm adventures when I visit again. Highly recommended.

This was an amazing tour, Johan was so fun and full of good stories about the city. If you want to learn about Stockholm and figure out what to spend your time seeing , do this first to know exactly where to go!

Not for beginners
Aug 2019 • Friends
I booked this tour with my sister, it was her first time kayaking. There was a group of 10 people. I had kayaked a couple of times before and it had always been fun.
This tour was supposed to be for beginners, but me and my sister just couldn't keep up with the guide. We weren't the only ones, there was another man who was exhausted and had a difficult time.

The guide asked us if we were okay, and I told him it was way too fast for us. He towed our kayak for a while, which was okay, but it wouls have been better if we could just have kayaked at an easier pace. It felt like he was in a hurry.

When we had to huddle together to listen to him explaining stuff about the area, we held on to each other's kayaks as to not drift off, but after he was done he went on kayaking very fast, and the people in the tour still had to get loose from each other and me and my sister still had to turn our kayak around before we could follow. The guide and the group were already way ahead of us by the time we could start peddling.

At the end the guide told us we could just continue on our own pace, and then disappeared. We knew where we had to go, but if we had fallen in the water there would have been nobody to help us back in our kayaks. I don't find this very responsible, since we were beginners.

So all in all we really didn't have a good time. I like kayaking but this felt so rushed and we felt exhausted.

Fun Time, Despite Rain
Aug 2019
What a great way to get acquainted with Stockholm! We had 9 people in our tour group, plus Molly our guide--all of us in double kayaks.

Molly was a fantastic guide who was patient with even the most novice kayakers on our tour. We were startled a few times--once, when two of the kayakers flipped their boat, and once when the skies turned dark and a heavy rain began. Molly kept her cool throughout, first with rescuing the duo in the water (apparently, this is an unusual occurrence) with clear and patient instructions. She also gauged the weather and had us turn back a bit early when the skies got particularly ugly, and though the tour was curtailed a bit, she offered to allow us to continue to kayak on our own for a bit. (It wasn't dangerous, just very rainy.)

Basically, many things that could go wrong did go wrong, and yet we all had a great time thanks to Molly.

Consider this tour an appetizer and not the full buffet: you won't learn every detail about every neighborhood or attraction in Stockholm, but that is what the city's great, free walking tours are for. This is a unique chance to experience the city from the water, as so many of its citizens do throughout the year. And maybe, like me, you'll be inspired to rent a kayak later and explore a bit further on your own. Stockholm Adventures can ably help with that as well.

Fabulous time on the water!
We booked this due to the reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. It’s a great way of seeing the city from a different perspective and although it’s not the traditional city seeing locations, it’s really worth the effort. We had a great guide, small group so felt like a private guide! Highly recommend.
