Sea Kayak Rental
Sea kayaks for rent - go explore the lush archipelago of southern Sweden
Welcome to visit and stay here in Svalemåla and make a reservation for our kayaks.
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. The location of our holiday village and the kayak rental site, is ideal for quickly getting out in the inner or outer archipelago for a daytrip both eastward toward the archipelago of Ronneby and west towards Hällaryds and Karlshamns archipelago.
Rent both a kayak and camping equipment and explore the islands and skerries. Choose your own perfect island, put up your tent next to the beach and enjoy your own cooked meal while watching the sunset. Camping in the wild is permitted almost anywhere here.

The kayak rent cost includes all equipment: paddle, life jacket, spray deck, dry bag, 1 Map (Nautical chart)/group and a safety kit/group (paddle float, bilge pump).
We rent out 6 full size kayaks with rudder. 2 of the kayaks has both rudder and skeg.
Our kayaks are suitable for both novice paddlers and more advanced paddlers. The kayaks are stable, secure, yet easy and fun to paddle. The cockpit is spacious and the comfort is good.
As an alternative if you are a couple or want to paddle an adult and a child during the trip, we also have two double kayaks, Tahe Lifestyle Duo. This is a kayak with bigger cockpits and increased stability.
We also rent out a double sit-on-top (SOT) kayak on a day with nice weather and warm water, that can carry 2 adults plus one child. This kayak is not the fastest but it is fun, easy to paddle, rigid, unsinkable and easy to get up on, if you would like to take a swim.
We have 2 Stand Up Paddle Boards (SUP) which can be rented by our cottage guests, morning or afternoon/evening.
You get the equipment in the morning (you choose start time when booking) and you kayak all day until sunset, before you return the kayaks on our beach.
Svalemåla is easy to reach and if you come by car it’s not far from the E22 highway. The train station in Bräkne-Hoby is 10km away and Ronneby Airport, is only 20km away. The distance to Copenhagen airport Kastrup is about 200 km and a little more than a 2 hour drive.
If you travel by train and have a reservation for a cottage and kayak you can pre-order a bus service that is called "Öppen Närtrafik" from the Railway station in Bräkne-Hoby to Svalemåla Stugby (Svalemålavägen 11). This service has to be ordered more than one day ahead of your transfer.
