Sweden by Kayak & Sea Food Safari

 

Sweden Sea Kayaking 2014 from Live The Adventure on Vimeo.   Our sea kayaking holidays in Sweden give you the opportunity to see Sweden by Kayak, and is based on the beautiful west coast of Sweden. The good water temperatures and non-tidal nature of the water ensure that people of all levels of kayaking proficiency can take part, and we also have hundreds of idyllic private islands to camp on each evening. If you are new to kayaking we include pre trip training days in the UK to gain some basic skills before departure and will coach and guide you throughout the trip. For the experienced we have the top of the range sea kayaks to explore some of the best locations on the west coast of Sweden with either solo or tandem options available for all levels.

Day 1 – Arrive Gothenburg by midday and start road trip to Ramsvik approx. 145 KM (1 hour 45 mins drive time). Remainder of day at rest staying in the boathouse cottage 100 metres from the sea! B&B Accommodation.

Day 2 – Spend the morning packing boats and preparing to depart. After lunch we start our journey with an afternoon paddle to our first remote island. All food – breakfast, lunch and evening meals are included on the kayak journey.

Day 3 – Today we travel approx. 17km through many small islands towards the town of Bovallstrand and past the stonecarver village of Hunnebostrand. We spend the night camped out on the island of Lilla Hamburgo.

Day 4 – Today’s paddle will take us through one of the most spectacular archipeloagos on this coastline and a journey of approx. 15 km. We pass through narrow channels, old west coast buildings and even Ingrid Bergman’s summer retreat. We end the day on one of the nicest camping spots on Stora Makholman.

Day 5 – Head around the big island of Otteron and pass the small village of Grabbetstad. A change from the more open coast to calmer sheltered routes through the islands passing the village of Fjallbacka. We complete our 15km journey on the island of Valo where we stay in the comfort of a hotel for our last night on the islands. There is a great hike to the top of the island which is the highest in the archipelago offering some stunning views. Accommodation on a B+B basis.

Day 6 – We pack our kayaks for the last time for the short 3km paddle across to Fjallbacka. There will be time to explore this amazing village whilst we return the kayaks and collect our hire vehicle. We then travel back to Gothenburg and our return flight home.
