Daytrip in Stockholm archipelago
My boyfriend and I took a day trip tour of the archipelago in august….and what a wonderful tour it was! The sun was out, the scenery was beautiful and the tour guide, Morgan, was excellent. Really was the highlight of our trip. We can’t recommend this highly enough!

We had great weather conditions, little wind and gloriously sunny so we were able to kayak without difficulty. The guys were fantastic and helpful and the lunch they prepared – salmon soup was delish!
Fantastisk dagstur i kajak genom skärgården runt Runmarö. Såg örnar och andra fåglar och upplevde naturen på ett sätt som är svårslaget – glida fram över vattnet i en kajak mellan öarna! Jättegod lunch och tid för ett bad. Kunnig och skicklig guide som anpassade paddlingen så att alla kunde hänga med och med massor av information om vad vi såg under dagen. Första gången jag paddlade kajak men det var absolut inga problem, klara instruktioner och hjälp att komma igång sen gick det som en dans. Rekommenderar verkligen detta som ett sätt att se Stockholms skärgård och natur och vi kommer definitivt att göra detta fler gånger.

Loved my kayaking day trip with 2Tides! Our guide, Erik, did a great job of teaching everyone how to paddle and use the boats. He helped everyone, in turn, get their boats set up correctly. He is very knowledgeable about the archipelago and its wildlife and had a great sense of humor. He makes a mean fish soup for lunch as well! Thanks to Erik and 2Tides for a wonderul day!

We did a kayaking tour through the archipelago with Stockholm Adventures (2tides, biggest reseller) and it made for a very memorable day. One of the party was worried about whether she would be able to keep up in advance, but the day proved to be suited towards all abilities. Our guide was friendly and very helpful and the group had a really nice atmosphere. We set off from the kayak base island about 11am and paddled for a couple of hours to an island for lunch. We saw truly beautiful scenery along the way and we had the water to ourselves for a lot of the time. The island we had our lunch on was really gorgeous and completely uninhabited. A really delicious lunch was provided for us and we ate it at a leisurely pace – a generally relaxing lunch break. After lunch, we paddled back to base, which took another couple of hours. We then put all the kayaking gear back and walked up to the highest point of the island which the kayaking island was on, giving us beautiful views across the archipelago. Finally, we headed back down to base for coffee cinnamon buns. Excellent day!

Discovering the natural beauty of the islands in an area quite new to me. A dream to paddle!

My friends and I signed up for the one-day kayaking trip through the islands of Stockholm. It was wonderful! We had an experienced guide named Morgan who spoke flawless English. He made suiting up and learning to kayak easy as pie. The website says that even people who have never kayaked before can do it and it’s true – although you will be a little bit sore! Morgan gave us wonderful insights about the area and Sweden every time we paused for a break. He took us to a remote island and set up a beautiful picnic and gave us time to unwind and bask in the sun (and to recover a bit!) Kayaking back was just as fun as the first round. I would definitely recommend the Stockholm Adventures Kayaking Trip (2tides biggest reseller). They also offer 3 and 5 day trips, as well. Thanks, Morgan!

It was an extremely enjoyable experience and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It was out first time kayaking and our guide was extremely friendly, helpful, insightful, and informative. He made the experience a good one and we were glad to have had a purely Swedish lunch. Have recommended this to friends and I will continue to promote it to friends who are coming to Stockholm.

Multi day trip in Stockholm archipelago
Sea kayaking was wonderful, views fantastic and sunsets even better. Having three Swedes in our group made it a great opportunity to find out about the country. A fantastic experience.

Paddling to see the seals in a little rough seas.
Morgan, our guide, was excellent. Always communicative, giving lots of information about geology, fauna, flora, people’s life in the region, etc…

En helt fantastisk 5 dagars kajaktur med vår skickliga, kunniga och engagerade guide Morgan. Underbar naturupplevelse, och härlig paddling, och jättegod mat. Fick lära mig mycket om paddlingsteknik, djur och natur och om öarna vi besökte. Och vi hade jätteroligt! Kan verkligen rekommendera detta till alla som gillar utmaning och naturupplevelser!

Kayaking in Stockholm City
Excellent 2 hour guided tour with Julie last week. Julie is a great guide and kayak tutor. 2 man kayaks with spray decks and rudders are very good. Thoroughly recommended as a way to see a variety of islands from a different angle and get feel for the city. Julie knows the city very well and is a fun and friendly guide.

We went on a kayak tour around the canals of Stockholm. Julie our guide was so friendly and informative and you could tell that her job as a guide was more than just a job, she lived the city although from North Carolina. A must do when visiting the city!

My girlfriend and I booked on to take a Kayak tour of the city during our final day in Stockholm. It was an excellent way to spend our last morning in the city, and proved to be the highlight of our time in Stockholm. We had Morgan and Emelie as guides, both of whom were very attentive, knowledgable about the city, and entertaining. The tour was delivered in an engaging way and a lot of ground was covered in the 2 hours that we were with them. It was an excellent way to see and learn about the main sites of the city and I would fully recommend it to anyone.

We cannot say enough positive things about our 2 hour kayak tour of Stockholm! We were recently there for a few days and while I believe that we saw most of the main attractions that Stockholm has to offer, this kayak tour was our very favourite part of our trip. Not only did was our tour guide Julie very helpful and knowledgeable, she was fun and upbeat and helped make the whole experience that much more wonderful. I would highly highly recommend this tour if you ever have the pleasure of visiting Stockholm. Many thanks, Julie! We had a blast!

We recently took a 2 hr kayak tour guided by Julie. She was extremely personably and laid back, making the tour extremely enjoyable! She was very knowledgable about the sites along the way and provided advice as to what our top sites in Stockholm might be (this was our first activity/stop upon arriving in Stockholm). As fairly inexperienced kayakers, she made sure we were comfortable with being on the water before facing other boat traffic or waves. On our 10 day honeymoon, where Stockholm was our final stop, this was the BEST money we spent the entire trip and the BEST guided tour of any of the cities we visited! Thanks, Julie!

A quick email to say how much we enjoyed the kayak trip. All joining instructions were spot on and the guys running the kayak centre in Sweden were extremely helpful and friendly.
