Fantastic Archipelago Trips
We did both kayaking and sailing day trips. Our kids (12 and 9) had both been kayaking before and so were prepared to do well in doubles with the adults. Really great day trip around a gorgeous island. May have been because we had some newbie kayakers in our tour, but it was a pretty easy trip physically, but no less gorgeous. Well run and organized. Sailing trip was a truly amazing way to get out ... more and see the islands. Every aspect was pretty much perfect. I would highly, highly recommend doing one or both. Note that food is all vegetarian. Quite good regardless
Amazing kayaking adventure
We were in Stockholm for a few days and really wanted to see the archipelago so we booked the kayak tour. It turned out to be such a great day, our guides were very friendly and there to help when needed (especially that day because it was very windy). We have seen some of the archipelago, which was amazingly beautiful, had a nice lunch and great talks with the guides and other participants.In general, ... more it was a wonderful experience that we highly recommend! We are definitely going to do other things with the green trails when we come back to Sweden!
Had a great day trip in the archipelago
We weren't in Stockholm for very long, and this made for a great day trip to see some of the archipelago, talk with the guides, and practice our paddling. Both of the guides were easy-going, knowledgeable, and helpful. It was a good amount of paddling for those with light experience -- you get just warm enough to want to jump in. We would love to go again next time we're in Stockholm, maybe for a ... more multi-day outing.Bonus: The food was good!
