Self guided 5 days kayak rental package.

Self guided 5 days rental package adventure gives you the possibility to experience the Swedish west coast in your own pace. Visit granite islands, sandy beaches, watch birdlife and seals and camp on your very own island. Taste the sea food and experience Swedish culture. Paddle on calm seas among sheltered islands or try the bigger swell - it's all your choice!
Our coastline is friendly with no tides - sometimes a bit windy and sometimes stunningly calm. The many islands and islets give you the possibility to choose a sheltered or more exposed route. In all our self guided packages you'll get pick up at the ending point and have the possibility to add camping gear and kayak clothing to your booking. The area between Gothenburg and Oslo is a paddlers paradise regarded as the best in Sweden but not so well known outside Scandinavia.
All you need is a sleepingbag, food and your personal clothes - the rest you can get from us! . We will go through the maps and safety intructions with you before leaving and we keep in contact with a text message every evening with an updated weather forecast. Our kayaks have plenty of room for all your gear so don't forget to enjoy a beer or a nice glass of wine out there in the wild!

 

Start in Grebbestad and visit Fjällbacka, Smögen and Lysekil

The route we suggest starts in Grebbestad and ends up in Lysekil further south.
In Grebbestad we'll suggest you'll start the trip with a visit to the many rocky islands with sandy beaches. Continue south to Smögen - the old fishing village. Further along the way you'll visit the archipelago of Lysekil with many seal colonies ( requires good weather to visit them)- The idyllic islands called Stora and Lilla Kornö tell the history of old Swedish culture. It's also in this area we pick you up once you've finished the trip.
If you have prior experience from sea kayaking and a solid rescue rutine you can also go north and enjoy the Koster Islands a national marine park.

 

Required experience

A self guided trip requires basic skills in navigation and rescue techniques. The weather by the coastline can change very rapidly but almost the whole route have alternative more sheltered routes apart from a few spots on the coastline. If you are a novice or inexperienced paddler we suggest you either book a beginners course or a private lesson before you head out. We also offer the possibility to book a private guide the whole or parts of the trip as an optional extra.
Going south is the most sheltered option - going north to the Koster Islands requires good prior experience and rescue rutines.
