Our most popular tours & packages

We kayak all year round in Grebbestad, Fjällbacka and Koster

The best way to explore and experience the Swedish archipelago is on the ocean. We offer guided archipelago tours with kayak or paddelboard in what is considered to be one of the last great wilderness and a paddling paradise.

We also offer guided national park paddling tours with kayak in the Swedish marine national park Kosterhavet. This area is full of life above and underneath the surface with over 6000 different marine seaweeds and animals.

If you have previous kayak experience we recommend that you do a self guided camping tour during the summer when the water is warm. We offer kayaks, tent, camping equipment and suggestions of tours according to your level of experience and the weather forecast.

Beach cleanups

Our cleanup work started 2014 and year 2016 was the year when we started to measure and count how much garbage we collected. As we can tell by our own statistics it is less and less garbage to collect every year on the places we return to. We believe the reason to be that we have cleaned a old garbage that has been here for a long time and once it is gone it is only the new garbage we need to collect. Old plastic is very fragile and you can tell it has been there for a long time.

Ocean cleanup - part of our business
Ocean cleanup – part of our business

2016 – 1018 kg garbage, 48 bags
2017 – 3618 kg garbage, 202 bags
2018 – 8532 kg garbage, 702 bags
2019 – 6062 kg garbage, 433 bags
2020 – 3780 kg garbage, 270 bags
2021 –…

Up until year 2020 we have collected about 20 677 kg waste i.e. more than 20 tons of garbage, 1655 bags to be precise. This is equivalent to at least 165 500 litre of waste- a bathtub contains 160 litre. This means that we have collected more than 1034 bathtubs with ocean debris.

We also arrange public beach cleanups  that you can join or if you would like to arrange a cleanup with your friends or organization you can use the online map www.strandstä to register what and where you have been and get help to collect your bags if you wish to. You can also contact us if you have any questions or read more about our sustainability work here.

Our goal is to contribute to that more get a chance to explore our magnificent archipelago.
