The tour starts at at the Outdoor center Aktivt Uteliv Björnögården at Björnön, where we provide all participants with suitable equipment before we head down to the water below Björnögården. After a brief theoretical overview, we get in the kayaks and paddle a nice tour on Lake Mälaren. During the tour Miguel teach you the basics of kayaking and let you practice various steering techniques.


We use safe and stable sea kayaks that don’t require any previous experience in kayaking. They are beginner-friendly, but to keep up with the group, it does require some physical effort.
