Sweden's Fjord West Coast


Event details

1. Event co-ordinator: John Soady

2. Trip Leader leader: John Soady

3. Trip type: sea expedition (kayak camping). Island hopping and exploring the rocky west coast, involving moderate distances of around 15-20km, with opportunities for refuelling on coffee and cake at coastal villages and marinas en-route.

4. Level of ability: Improver / Intermediate.

5. Date: travel out from UK Sat 3rd September (depending on flights) for a week’s paddling.

6. Venue: Boat / kit hire and trip departure from Nautopp Kayak Centre in Grebbestad (~70 miles north of Gothenburg) - https://www.nautopp.com/kajakcentergrebbestad

7. Travel: to be agreed - direct flights available from Manchester to Oslo or Copenhagen, from where a bus can take us to Grebbestad (bus options here - https://www.nautopp.com/find-us-nautopp-seakayaking). The bus stops close to the kayak centre. Oslo appears to offer the best flight / bus option.

8. Equipment: previously I have flown with personal paddling and camping kit and just hired a kayak, but paddling and camping kit can also be hired if preferred. Self-guided hire options here - https://www.nautopp.com/kayak-rental-day-multiday-bohuslan.

9. Provisioning: there is a supermarket adjacent to the kayak centre, so no need to travel out with food supplies. Gas can be bought at the centre.

10. Finalising arrangements: I’ll arrange a pub / online get-together for everyone interested to discuss travel and trip duration preferences.

Please read LCC notes re trips here:


I am happy to co-ordinate and lead the trip. However, as we will be a team, we are jointly responsible for each other’s safety on the water.

Please ensure you carry the correct kit for the trip.

Guests by arrangement with organiser, prior to trip only.
