Islands and the city in a single day

The archipelago and the city in a single day

There are many reasons to envy the residents of Gothenburg. The city's location is one. From higher points you can even see the tempting archipelago. On a sunny day, you can easily combine paddling with an urban adventure, without any stress or hassle. With knowledgeable guides and local kayak rental it is easy to arrange a day trip to for example Älvsborg Fortress, to the beautiful Café Öbergska on the island of Styrsö, or a paddling tour of the city, through the canals. You then return the equipment to the canoe rental centre, and change into clothes more suitable for an urban adventure.
Finish your combination day with an excellent meal in the city, perhaps in a restaurant with a view of the very waters you have just paddled. The next day, you may be back in the kayak, even further out among the islands.


With Styrsö Kajakuthyrning you paddle along the city shoreline and explore the landscape and local area from a cockpit perspective. The closeness to a big city, combined with a sense of being very far from civilisation is unique.
