The 3-day premium experience day-by-day


The adventure begins at Nybroviken in Stockholm where a RIB boat takes you on a fast and scenic journey to Stavsnäs. Once there, you will be greeted by the nature guide from The Kayak Trail, who will stay with the group throughout the trip. The guide will go through the safety procedures, before the group heads out towards the charming little island of Harö. The way there just happens to be one of the finest kayak trails in the area. 

On Harö, you will experience the archipelago by staying close to the untamed nature, in modern cabins. Before it is time to enjoy a five-course dinner together, why not wander around, exploring the countryside or hop in the kayaks and set off on an evening tour around the small island?

At bedtime, do not miss the opportunity to peek out from the cabin and up towards the night sky. In the outer archipelago, light pollution is much lower than on the mainland, so on a cloudless night you may be able to enjoy a ceiling full of stars.


After breakfast, the kayak trip continues towards the island Sandön and its harbour, Sandhamn. On the way there, the group will stop for al fresco lunch on the rocks. On arrival, a comfortable room awaits you at the Sandhamn Yacht Hotel. In the afternoon there is time to explore the island and its many restaurants and bars, or why not enjoy a traditional coffee at the bakery? In the evening a dinner bursting with flavours of the archipelago is served. The hotel’s SPA will be at your disposal throughout your stay.


The last day starts with a luxurious hotel breakfast before it is time to continue exploring the surroundings alongside your guide. The island lends itself well to hiking, through quiet pine forests and across dreamy beaches. Together with the guide you will walk along the coast, visit the harbour and borrow bikes from the hotel to explore the island. Lunch is served at the hotel and afterwards you can round off the day by taking a dip in the sea, or why not book the sauna? And so the adventure comes to an end. The guide waves you off as you board the boat, which in the afternoon heads for central Stockholm and is expected to arrive just before midday.
