Sea Kayak Rental

Sea kayaks and Fishing Kayaks for rent - go explore the archipelago of southern Sweden

Plan your stay here in Svalemåla and make a request and reservation directly for the kayaks with all the basic equipment.

Blekinge archipelago is the closest and the southernmost Swedish archipelago you can find when you cross the bridge from the European mainland between Denmark and Sweden.
If you wish you can stay in one of our cottages only 300 meters walk from the sandy shallow beach where the kayaks are rented out.

The location of our holiday village and the kayak rental site, is ideal for quickly getting out in the outer archipelago for a daytrip both eastward toward the archipelago of Ronneby and west towards Hällaryds and Karlshamns archipelago.
Rent a kayak, rent a cottage and/or camping equipment, explore the islands and skerries. Choose your own perfect island, put up your tent next to a nice beach and enjoy your own cooked meal while watching the sunset. Camping in the wild is permitted almost anywhere here.

If you are a bigger group, for example a club or association, there is also the possibility of renting a meeting room with seating for 30-35 persons with fully equipped kitchen and WC.
