Fishing and kayaking in the stunning Finnish archipelago
The fishing and kayaking tours are led by trained guides, who can also provide fluent service in Swedish and English. Our guides will choose a route that matches your wishes, suitable to the time of year and weather conditions. Accommodation will be arranged in modern yurts by the sea, featuring a quality bed, sofa bed, electricity and fridge–and a touch of summertime camping. Modern shower and sauna facilities are located in a separate building, and the grounds also offer a beach for swimming and a barbecue area. Our restaurant serves mouthwatering dishes, made from local raw materials.
