Winter kayaking with fika and sauna experience

Winter kayaking in Stockholm Archipelago is an unforgettable and purely magical experience. Escape the crowded city center, jump into one of our kayaks and explore archipelago from the best perspective. Area around Vaxholm is one of the most beautiful places to paddle. Enjoy the fresh, clear air and the view over archipelago that goes into pale tones.

Admire the spectacular natural environment, see the picturesque wooden cottages and listen to local stories. Try Swedish fika in the nature and feel the tranquility, despite being just 30 minutes away from Stockholm.

Winter kayaking can be followed by our traditional wood burning sauna and a cold dip in the sea for full archipelago experience.

The event runs until Feb 25
