kay: URBAN WILDERNESS PADDLING (dressed in drysuits)

Enjoy the beautiful granite crags that surround lovely Lysekil also during the quiet season.

Dressed in a spacious drysuit (October-May), and seated in a comfortable and steady sea kayak you can enjoy the ride. Our guide will tell you tales about Lysekil's past and present and this will make you apreciate the scenery even more! You will be introduced to paddling at the fringe ov one of the world’s most beautiful archipelagos (according to a recent CNN Traveler listing).
Suitable for beginners.
he guide will help you fit the equipment, help you onboard and assist your alighting, if you want. After a  safety instruction and an introduction to paddle technique you are good to go.
The guide will stop at regular intervals to enjoy the silence, to let participants have a rest and to tell you about the surroundings. 
Exact location will vary.
As the passage around Stångehuvud is very exposed, we will somtimes have to adapt to the weather conditions on the day of departure.  Most days we use our regular landing place in Norra Hamnen, buton occasion we will start in Södra Hamnen instead. Depending on the weather and the group's composition and prior knowledge, the guide may also suggest that we paddle further away from the coast, into the archipelago instead.

Additional Information

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. Please come some 10-15 minutes ahead of time so that we can try out your gear. 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.
  • On rare occasions, weather permitting and participants willing, we explore the archipelago NW of Lysekil's Northern Harbour.
  • 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.
