This tour is available from 15 June – 31 August
Arrival with shrimps
You arrive on Skaftö Island at lunch-time, and make yourself at home in your apartment or small house in Grundsund. After settling down, you can either take a paddling lesson or a walk/cycling trip on the island. We start this tour in the afternoon on dry land with a feast of fresh prawns from Grundsund’s own trawler Atlantic, along with a light beer. This can be eaten indoor where you are hosteled or out in the open, maybe out on the rocks above the harbor. Please feel free to bring other refreshments if you so desire.
The following morning starts with a light breakfast in the apartment before heading south on a 1.5 hours paddle to Guest House Rågårdsviks Pensionat where a full breakfast awaits.
After having breakfast you head north along the east coast of Skaftö, passing west Malö, Ängö, Flatö, Bassholmen and Bokenäset up to Gullmarn. There are both water and some fruit on board if an energy kick is needed.
Once out on Gullmarn, the journey turns West-South-West toward Fiskebäckskil. You take a lunch stop at Lyckans jetty to eat a herring buffé at restaurant Brygghuset.
While melting the lunch it’s time to head back out on open water in a westerly direction past the northwest tip of Skaftö. At the Gåsö fjord, paddle south for 1.5 hours, arriving back in Grundsunds harbour. After a good day’s paddling of 20-25km you will enjoy a first class evening meal at restaurant Pelles Rökeri, situated beside the kayak jetty. Here you can relax, enjoy the company and watch the sun set between the islands.
A free day with your kayaks
The following day allows you free time with the kayaks. Breakfast is in the fridge. Lunch is up to you – there are five restaurants on the island and some cafés. Apart from the restaurants that you’ll already have visited, the island offers several other cafés and the other restaurants is named; Smultron & Tång in Grundsund; Golfkrogen in the middle of the island; Restaurang G at Gullmarstrand, in Fiskebäckskil. If you prefer to be out on the water all day then you can buy food at the supermarket, ICA. The flat has to be cleaned and the key returned by 12.00.
