Saint Anna & Gryt Archipelagos
This is a wild kayaking expedition – you'll quickly find yourself far away from civilisation
completely surrounded by water and wilderness. Thousands of islands, almost all of them
uninhabited…you feel free, it’s as simple as that.
This spectacular archipelago is a magnet for sea kayakers, a true wilderness experience.
These sheltered waters are a perfect place to learn sea kayaking and after some basic
instruction we will set off on our journey. Instruction will continue throughout however this
will not distract from our exploration.
We will travel as a self-sufficient group, carrying all our food and equipment.
