Sea kayak tour: FISHERMEN AND FRIENDS

A winter season kayak tour with guide in the Lysekil archipelago that can be magical! Imagine a seal splashing behind the kayak, crystal clear waters and no noise! Enjoy the silence and marvel at the pristine landscape of the Swedish west coast. The 25 km long Gullmarsfjord may freeze in January and February, but the mouth of the fjord is ice free 51 weeks a year. And going thru thin sheets of ice on a sunny day is a marvellous experience. This time of the year, activity is low in the archipelagos surrounding Lysekil, a small town on the west coast of Sweden. Time to unwind and recharge your batteries. A stable sea kayak and dry suit make you enjoy the moment even more! Fishermen? The guide will take you to the Nature Reserves surronding the town of Lysekil. Here you can enjoy the silence and have some time for mindfulness excersices. Some times a curious seal will follow our tracks - observing the sea kayaks and paddlers. Hence the name of the tour, Fishermen and friends. Humans, seals and the marine life. The guide will tell you more during the tour. And during a short break on some distant isle you will be served fish soup while stretching your legs.   LOCATION: LYSEKIL            Gullmarsfjorden Season: October-April Recommended for:   Everyone (Soft Adventure) Requirements: Regular health, able to swim 200 meters What’s included: Guide, seat in a shared K2 kayak, outdoor meal, drysuit (with optional use of gloves and hood) What to bring:  Headgear, reinforcement garments and gloves for the break, sunglasses, (retainer for glasses), drink (to store on top of kayak) Duration: 4 hours total (2,5 hours seated in the kayak) Price: SEK 1.095                    Optional: Single seating in K1 Kayak Drybag for phone and keys Drybag for reinforcement clothing Extras: Sauna upon return Havets Hus Sea Aquarium (entry)
