Discover Bohuslän's archipelago and the inland wilderness

Outdoor West is a ‘soft adventure’ company based in Lysekil that offers guided and self-guided sea kayaking and rock climbing trips here on the west coast, mixed with local history and culture.

So, as well as kayaking among the islands and skerries of the beautiful Bohuslän archipelago, you also learn about the history, culture and the people of the west coast of Sweden and its islands.

Soft Adventures

This is just one of the many ‘soft adventures’ you can go on with Outdoor West and you don’t even have to be an experienced kayaker or climber to enjoy the trips. All participants get a run-through of the various techniques and safety instructions before heading out. A basic level of fitness and the ability to swim and you are good to go.


Conference activities, hen and stag nights, birthdays, anniversaries and larges groups.

Family fun

Many of our guided tours are suitable for families with younger kids. If you have family members 15 years and younger, please check out our activities designed for families.

Lysekil GUIDE

Guided tours by boat, bus, bike etc. City walks and nature walks.

Equipment rental and sales

If you prefer to explore the coastal area on your own by bike or kayak you can rent it from us. Please make reservations in advance for best price.

See you in Lysekil !

Lysekil GUIDE - culture and history


Depending on weather conditions, we may have to postpone a trip or change location. It is always the leader of each activity that determines this at every occasion. We will do this after consultation with the booked participants.

Our ambition is to always offer an alternative activity such as kayaking guests can be offered climbing if the winds are to strong. 

Safety, comfort and enjoyment are core values when planning and implementing the tours.
