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.
In the spring and autumn we organise 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.

We offer kayak rental, courses and guided tours. We also offer our guests possibility to test/borrow tents from our sponsors, https://www.skargardsidyllen.se/en/tent/. It is also possible to rent camping equipment. This is a very successful service for our guests and partner. We have many guests travelling from abroad that appreciate to travel light. This is also a great opportunity to get familiar with a tent that you might become interested in buying in the future. We do sell kayaks and equipment but we work with the ambition that our customers should have the opportunity to try before they buy. This way you know what you want and run less risk of buying something that doesn’t fit you and your interests.
