Before the trip - Kayak

In this document we will try to give you the information you need to be able to bring right kind of cloth and equipment, but also give an idea about what you can expect.

You don´t need to have a lot of experience in kayak to be able to join this tour. Actually you can join even if you never done this before.

On our Kayak tours we will be out among the islands in the archipelago during the whole tour. We sleep in tents and doing all cocking outdoor.

 

About equipment you needsprayskirt

While paddling you sitting in the kayak with a sprayskirt covering your legs. If we get bad weather you only need a waterproof jacket. Of course it could be nice with rain trousers if we have rain in the evening but it is not necessary.

More necessary is cloth that covers hour upper body. Long arm shirts, a hat or scarf and sun glasses. During a sunny day sitting in the kayak the whole day that close to the water that also reflects the sun you will easily get burned.

About shoes:

When stepping in and out of the kayak you might need standing in the water. Barefooted or sandals is then recommended. While paddling you can use what ever, even barefooted (not late autumn when it is cold outside). But in the evening when put up a camp in some island you need some kind of shoes, it could be sandals or jogging shoes or hiking boots, depends if you like to walk around on the island or not.
