Europe & Arctic
Life explodes during the brief Arctic summer and sea kayaks are a superb way to explore the amazing wildlife and coastline of these fascinating northern wonderlands. Polar bears, seals, walrus, millions of migratory birds, fjords and icebergs await us on our High Arctic voyages.
Explore the outer islands of Scotland as we paddle along wild coastlines, channels and hidden lochs. Visit remote crofting communities, castles and fishing villages and 5,000–year old ancient sites. The Scottish Isles are home to some of Europe’s largest seabird communities, a birdwatcher’s paradise!
Synonymous with Scandinavia, southern Sweden is located between the Baltic sea on the east and the strait of Skagerrak on the west. The strait is an offshoot of the North Sea, influenced by the warmer gulf stream and partially protected by Denmark and Norway. Bohuslän, on Sweden’s west coast, is a mecca for sea kayaking with thousands of islands and skerries to explore. We stay in quaint inns in small fishing villages and camp on remote granite islands as we explore this dramatic “Rock Kingdom”.
