Canoeists who venture out into a snow-covered Bohuslän are met by an open natural landscape that gives a genuine feeling of existing in the here and now. Kayak rental operator Fredrik Lundkvist at Stångenäs Kayak in Lysekil invites you on a journey where the barren landscape of Bohuslän with its smooth and salt-covered granite cliffs is combined with comfortable places to stay and flavoursome meals. Launch your kayak into the fresh, salty sea – and enjoy!
It all started on a dreary cold November day in Stockholm, when Ulrika Larsson sat down in a kayak in the Stockholm archipelago for a day of sea kayaking . Although the odds were against her, the weather being cold and uninspiring, Ulrika absolutely fell for kayaking and wanted to do it again and again!
It’s official: I am now an Outdoor Ambassador of Sweden. I spent five days in Bohuslän learning all there is to know about the outdoor pursuits and cuisine of the region, with the Outdoor Academy of Sweden. Here’s how it went:
Kayaking is a great activity for getting some of that sought-after stillness and reflection. As a canoeist you get the chance to really wind down and let your thoughts wander. It’s amazing to slowly glide through the water, enjoying a break from paperwork and mobile phones. And paddling a sea-kayak in low season gives you a naked, raw, and absolutely wonderful feeling of being at one with nature. You’ll find amazing opportunities to observe the animals of the archipelago and their everyday lives.
