Between the mainland of Finland and the Åland Islands lies the Archipelago Sea, a waterway maze of some 50.000 islands and skerries. These are the remnants of an ancient mountain ridge, the Fennoscandic shield, eroded through the Eon and finely sculpted by the late Ice Age. It is a globally unique area. The regional co-operation area of the local National Park covers five hundred square kilometers and some 8.000 islands, of which approximately 2.000 are part of the park itself. Ninety percent of the National Parks area is covered by the sea, which makes it ideal for exploration by sea kayak. Our pre planned packages are five nights and six days itineraries, including island hopping by kayak, exploring islands by foot, doing one or more day trips with kayaks, resting, relaxing and bathing in the sea, in the sun (and maybe sauna, if we are lucky). You will see wildlife, including swans, eiders, white-tailed eagles and seals. If you are lucky you might spot large mammals like deer and elk. You will also learn about the fascinating natural and cultural history of the area and about the local ecology and the environmental challenges the area faces now. Upon request we also provide tours fitted to your personal wishes and interests. Then you are more in charge of what we deliver. It means it's your goals and your responsibility, along with one of our guides who will accompany you with the local knowledge, and aid you in matters of safety, food and shelter, to the extent you wish.

The first time I went kayaking on the Archipelago Sea I didn't have a clue. But we had a great instructor who made it fun and easy. He has been a role model for me ever since as I have grown into a kayaking pro, thanks Ben. The sea itself had an even stronger impact on me. I found myself returning to its beauty over and over again, and wave by wave the sea changes how I think and how I live.

In extreme conditions we might have to reschedule or cancel. Alterations by us Sometimes we have to make changes, usually because of circumstances out of our control.
