Wilderness "light"

Welcometo the "not too wild" West. The soft granite crags along the coast of Bohuslan, on the West Coast of Sweden is very inviting for sunbathing and exploration of the littoral zone.

But after a quick change of the weather they can be just as relentless. Just a few minutes of paddling off the docks of Lysekil you find tranquility and peace of mind. Just you and the sea, some herons, jumping herring, mackerells, minks, seals and waterfowls.

Skilled paddlers can enjoy the outer archipelago on their own. But please keep in mind that if you bring less proficient friends along you will have an extra large responsability for their wellfare. Using sturdy kayaks and sticking to less exposed waters lets everyone enjoy the experience.

NB!

  • Please note that the coastal weather can change in an instant. The direction of wind and waves can change during a short break, especially at mid day.
  • Do not over estimate your own skills and the ability to handle emergencies among companions.
  • At least one person in every party ought to have experience in leading and executing rescue and recovery procedure of a companion that has capsized. 
  • Adjust your route in accordance with the level of proficiency of the least experienced member of your party and the weather forecast.
