Kayak tour: SUNSET PADDLING

Enjoy the beautiful granite crags shifting colour as the sun sets over the North Sea.

A steady sea kayak and a guide that tell you tales about Lysekil's past and present will make you apreciate the scenery even more!
As the sun sets the wind usually dies off and the boats get fewer. Thus, this can be a good option for families with young children. Please note the age limit on different departures.

Theme: City and Nature
The guide will stop at regular intervals to let participants have a rest and to tell you about the surroundings.

Families with children age 5-10 can also book a morning departure (City paddling) as the sea is often calmer during morning hours.

Additional Information

WHAT IF THE WEATHER IS "BAD" ???
In case of strong wind (+8 MPS), we may either relocate to another area for kayaking, or postpone the tour a few hours. Depending on prevailing weather conditions time and/or location may be subject to change, or the tour may be cancelled altogether. If cancelled, we will reimburse the entire amount, minus a small administration fee. However it is our ambition to offer an alternative activity. For instance, rock climbing if the wind is to hard for kayaking. If so, you will be reimbursed any price difference, except for a small administration fee. Please note that it is always the tour leader/guide of each activity that has the final say, after communication with the participants or group leader.
  • The tour will normally start at the Northern Harbour. We paddle at a leisurely pace towards Stångehuvud's nature reserve. If the weather permits, we continue towards the Havsbadet area and the Southern Harbour.
  • Should we need to change the launching location due to the wind direction, registered participants will be informed and we will assist with the transport of kayaks and / or participants. In the event of a strong wind, "wrong" direction or rough seas ithe tour may be redirected to the Saltö fjord towards Valbodalen.
  • After a safety breifing the guide will help you adjust the gear. When all paritcipant's kayaks are launched you will get a paddle technique crash course and off we go.
  • Upon returning everyone will help eachother to rinse the kayaks and hang gear to dry before we part company.

Soft adventure

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 execute our tours. .
