Kayak tour sutiable for beginners, running in calm, sheltered waters in one of the world’s most beautiful archipelagos (according to a recent CNN Traveler listing).
You’ll find yourself in “Wilderness light”, after only a few minutes of paddling. Smooth granite crags on one side and the North Sea on the other.

When kayaks have been launched and everyone is seated you will have an introduction to basic paddle techniques.
The guide will stop at regual intervals for a rest and to tell you about the fishermen and the marine life.
After aproximately 2 hrs we will alight the kayaks to strech our legs and you will be served an outdoor meal.
Upon returning you will feel energized and more confident in the kayak, and the guide can assist you in improving your paddle skills.
After placing the kayaks on the rack we end the tour with some stretching and a smile.
We have planned the tour so that previous experience of kayaking is not necessary. Safety, comfort and enjoyment are our guiding principles as we plan and implement our tours. In the winter months, the pace is even slower to avoid sweating, thus getting cold.
