Kayak in West Sweden – all year around!

We offer guided kayak tours from our main kayak center in Grebbestad all year round. During the summer we also have kayak centers in the middle of Kosterhavet marine national park. West Sweden is a kayak paradise. You can rent a kayak and camping equipment for a self guided tour, borrow a tent, book a kayak weekend, an Island studio or join a guided kayak tour, kayak course and enjoy wild camping in the last great wilderness thanks to the public right of access. We also have gift vouchers if you would like to share the experience with someone you care for.

5 star review  In preparation for a 3-day-trip with kayaks rented from here we took a intro-course with Marcus as our guide. He really knows his way around the kayaking scene and makes you feel safe and sound from start to end. Even with little to none experience we did not hesitate when it came to the capsize-exersice! The introduction even came with a nice surprise during the break, but I don't want to spoil it for others. For the 3-day-trip we were provided with maps and everything else we needed. I would definitely recommend Marcus and Ingelas rental and their services. 5/5! 🙂

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 garbage bags
2017 – 3618 kg garbage = 202 garbage bags
2018 – 8532 kg garbage = 702 garbage bags
2019 – 6062 kg garbage = 433 garbage bags
2020 – 3780 kg garbage = 270 garbage bags
2021 –3146 kg garbage = 226 garbage bags
2022 …

Up until year 2022 we have collected about 26156 kg waste i.e. more than 25 tons of garbage, 1881 bags to be precise. This is equivalent to at least 188100 litre of waste- a bathtub contains 150 litre. This means that we have collected more than 1175 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.
