What is included?
All bookings include access to a kayak, a life vest, a paddle and a map of the surrounding area. During a short introductory course, our staff will explain the basics of kayaking to you to ensure you are well prepared, feel safe and can fully enjoy your time on the water.
Rental times start at 10 a.m. the day of your booking and you are expected to return latest at 5 p.m. the same day. Booking online, you have the option to add 'evening pick-up' to your booking, which allows you to pick up your kayak between 5 and 5.30 p.m. the evening before the day of your booking, giving you a 24 hour rental period. Read 'Evening Pick Up' for more information.
During the season, you can easily book your kayak online. If you wish to book a kayak outside of our regular season or for longer than four days, you can contact us via email or phone to see if we have any kayaks available.
Evening Pick Up
Add 'Evening Pick Up' to your booking to pick up your kayak between 5 p.m. and 5.30 p.m. the evening before your actual booking. This allows you to use the kayak for 24 hours.
Using 'Evening Pick Up', you can spend the extra hours you have practising or paddling to a remote island to spend the night camping. It is also useful if you would like to start your day early and leave before we open in the morning.
When choosing this option, the date of 'Evening Pick Up' is the same as your booking. Please note, that 'Evening Pick Up' always refers to the evening before the day of your booking. This means, if you would like to book a kayak on a Saturday and add on 'Evening Pick Up', you can pick up your kayak on Friday evening even though the date in the add on shows Saturday's date.
Cleaning the Kayak
If you do not wish to clean the kayak or SUP yourself, you can add the option to your booking to have the kayak cleaned by our staff. The costs for this additional service are 120 SEK per kayak or SUP.
What to pack?
Come in comfortable clothes. It is not unusual that people dress too warm for paddling. Often, it is less cold than expected when paddling close to the shore and keeping your body moving the whole time. Remember that cotton becomes heavy once it is wet and only dries slowly. We therefore recommend to dress in functional clothing and as for the outer layer choose rain clothes. It is also never wrong to take a bottle of water and keep it close to you so you can reach it while paddling. Keep mobile and technical devices in a waterproof or zip lock bag. There are different waterproof compartments in every kayak where you can store any luggage you have. Larger luggage that you will not need during the time in the kayak, you can store in the compartments in the front or back of the kayak and will only be able to reach again when you are onshore again.
