About
Winter kayak tour around Vaxholm is a memorable and purely magical experience. Vaxholm is known as a capital of archipelago and kayaking is the best way to explore this wonderful place. Paddling is possible almost all year round. The archipelago is very lively in summer however during autumn and winter you will experience luxury of having it all to yourself. Area around Vaxholm is among the most beautiful places to paddle. Admire amazing swedish nature and local architecture along the way and listen to local stories. We will enjoy the fresh, clear air and the view over archipelago that goes in pale tones. The silence will be broken only by the splash of water from paddles. Soak up the scenic winter views and feel immersed in the tranquility, despite being just 30 minutes from Stockholm. We provide drysuit and warm drinks to keep you warm and dry during kayaking tour.

Great experience with very friendly guides!
Apr 2021
We did the one-day winter tour with Milena and Andrew and really enjoyed it! The equipment was in very good condition, and they are very knowledgeable about the area and technique. We could book it on the same week and received detailed information about the tour and nice introduction on-site.

It's the perfect tour for taking a break from the city and exploring the archipelago, we really recommend it! We also enjoyed to relax at the sauna after the tour –cold dip in the water included!

Look forward to the next one ;-)

Amazing winter kayaking tour
Dec 2020 • Friends
We highly recommend to do the winter kayaking tour or any other tour with these guys. It was awesome! As nature lovers, we enjoyed it very much, although it was a rainy day. We were the only crazy people in the Archipelago kayaking which made it very special. Andy gave us many great tips, explained a lot about Sweden, the Archipelagos etc. And on top of that, we had a great Fika. Thank you Andy for that fantastic day and that fantastic service! We’ll be back!

To be done absolutely!
Dec 2020
Without doubt the best day of our stayin Stockholm! I was with my 27years old daughter and we did the 3 hours Winter trip. Milena and Andrew are very sympathic and welcoming hosts, the briefing was fully detailed for the beginners we are and they were very attentive to our comfort. We had a wonderful trip through the islands with Milena who is definitely a great guide. We learned of lot of funny anecdotes about the history of the area, we discovered the birds and the beaver dams and navigated between the reeds. We stopped in a nice place with rocks where we enjoyed an invigorating fikka with warm drinks and "kanellbullar".
I recommand this absolutely TO BE DONE!
Thank you Milena and Andrew

Best thing we did in Stockholm
Nov 2020
Best thing we did in Stockholm, really really cool experience. Got to explore the amazing nature of the archipelago islands, many of which no one lives on. Andrew and Milena are great hosts, really easy to chat to and know told us so many interesting insights about life in Sweden today and its history. Don't miss the sauna experience, even in winter, its addictive to jump in and out of freezing sea and run back to a hot sauna. Can't recommend more! Also, get the ferry there from right in front of Grand Hotel, its not expensive and great way to travel

Wonderfull trip
Me and my boyfriend went on a three hour kajak trip through the archipels. We booked the night before so it was on very short notice. Milena and Andrew made our reservation through a phone call and they where very helpfull. They both went with us on the trip. Milena and Andrew are such nice and kind people, we would recommend the trip to everyone!!
