We are a family run kayak & outdoor company on the west coast of Sweden. Our goal is to make the nature and archipelago accessible and give more people a chance to experience what we love. Many people visit west Sweden every year but does not leave main land. Our goal is to make it possible for more to leave mainland and spend time and perhaps even camp in our archipelago thanks to our public right of access that make camping in the wild possible.
Raising awareness and making a difference
We also work with the projects Hållbar skärgård to create infrastructure for people to spend time in nature without leaving footprints. This work involves arranging for eco-compost toilets on islands in the archipelago, create an infrastructure for garbage disposal etc.
We also arrange ocean clean up events where we collect plastic and marine litter that ends up on our islands, https://www.skargardsidyllen.se/en/ocean-clean-up/. This work is about collecting the plastic before hurts animals or becomes micro plastic and end up in the animals and later humans. A nice side effect is that is also raises awareness about the marine litter. To goal is to always leave nature in better condition a green footprint. This work has been used as an example in a handbook for sustainable tourism work and an article in the Adventure Travel News.
In the spring and autumn we organize ocean, beach and archipelago clean up operations professionally with employees and subcontractors. We maintain and work with the Ocean clean up map which is a project run by Västkuststiftelsen an organisation that cares about the nature and sustainability of the same.
