Stockholm City

Top tips for sea kayaking in one of them most beautiful capitals in the world. Stockholm is the capital of Sweden and is located on many islands between the lake of Malaren and the Baltic sea. There is a good opportunity  to see the city from sealevel in a kayak.

There is lots of things to see and do. You can have a swim or go fishing downtown. There is also some white water possibilities close to the royal castle.  Most people paddle around the island of Kungsholmen. It is a 2 – hour trip, about 10 km (6,2 miles)

Contact one of the local companies that offer kayak rental in Stockholm. I used google and found Kajakkompaniet. They have a tiny store, at the west side of Kungsholmen, where there is possibility to rent  kayaks.
