Experience the Archipelago of Bohuslän at its most beautiful

Bohuslän is magical in the winter. The landscape alters, and exploring it from the water gives a real sense of peace and tranquillity. Winter canoeing is also a great opportunity to get close to the animals of the archipelago, as common seals, guillemots and auks feel safer entering the inner archipelago at this time of the year.

Winter kayaking

Winter kayaking, when everything is quiet and peaceful, the water is extra clear, and your only company is a few snowflakes, or the odd seal, is a magical experience. Combine with a few nights at a nice hotel, spa treatments and delicious meals.
