Enjoy the beautiful granite crags that surround lovely Lysekil!
A steady sea kayak well suited for novices will make you apreciate the scenery even more! You will be paddling in one of the world’s most beautiful archipelagos (according to a recent CNN Traveler listing).
Theme: City and Nature
The guide will stop at regular intervals to let participants have a rest and to tell you about the surroundings. What you will see on a tour will vary in accordance with prevailing weather conditions, and the participants on that very day. Normally this tour will run to Havsbadsparken and the guest harbour on the southern side of the peninsula. On the way we pass the spectacular Stångehuvud Nature reserve with its mix of pristine nature and reminisents of quarrying 100 years ago. If the group wants we may head out into the archipelago. The wind direction, speed and the wave amplitude will limit what is possible.
As the fairway around Stångehuvud is crowded and boat captains have been known to be reckless it's an advantage to go in a group. The guide will give you safety tips and talk about what you see during the trip. We are there to assist your entering and alightning the stable twin kayaks, and to teach basic techniques and safety issues.
