Amazing trip will definitely be booking again next year. All the equipment and camping gear supplied by SAK was really good quality and the transfers and arrangements were perfect. The 3 days were fantastic would love to have gone for longer!

Just got back from a fantastic trip. I was a little apprehensive at first as I’d not done kayaking for a long while! It’s an absolutely stunning archipelago with fantastic scenery everywhere you look.

The trip was challenging - but nothing too troubling to put you off getting back in the kayak ready to move on after a couple of hours on another beach!

We were well stocked by the organiser with supplies - as well as the means of heating and eating everything.

Camping gear was very high quality and clean (with sleeping bag liners and inflatable pillows) if you don’t want to bring your own gear (like us!)

I’d definitely consider doing this again along one of the different routes but I’d be bringing a lot more sunscreen. The sun was pretty intense out on the water!

We were a group of 6 and all but one were beginners. We were collected from the airport and taken to a gorgeous little beach where we got ready for our adventure. All the equipment was really good and the driver (sorry i forgot his name) was very friendly and showed us a bit about navigating the maze of islands and talked about the equipment. Then it was just us...... setting off on a 4 day trip. It rained a little on one of the days but it really matter to us as we were having such a fantastic time by then. We camped on a different island every night this consisted of; a swim, a campfire and drinking local wine, and although i was not looking forward to the camping part, this ended up being my favourite part of the trip. I would highly recommend this trip and Scandinavian Kayaking Adventures. All of us had an amazing time.

An amazing 3 days cruising the coastlines. Everything about the trip was as good as we could of hoped for. The kayak, camping equipment and services provided by Darren and his wife were outstanding.
Can't recommend this trip any more highly.
The trip would be suitable for anyone with any ability.The scenery was spectacular combined with amazing sunsets. Thanks for such a memorable getaway!

Myself and my bf just got back from paddling the Bohuslan archipelago. We weren't sure how the weather would be in May and we were even warned that early May was before the official kayaking season but we risked it anyway. I am so glad we did, we had such good weather and got to see the place before it got busier. The trip was really well organised and the booklet they give you has loads of information so we had a good idea where to go. We followed the orange Fjallbacka route. My bf was designated navigator at the front of the kayak and i sat the back with the steering peddles which was fun as we both had our own jobs. We called at some of the villages but i preferred the islands where there was nobody apart from a few birds. We saw many seals along the way. We stayed in Gothenburg for one day after the trip to make it easier to catch our flight. Gothenburg is a really nice city, so i'm glad we did. I absolutely recommend Scandinavian Kayaking Adventures, perfect service and really friendly people.
