Saint Anna & Gryt Archipelagos
This is a wild kayaking holiday – 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.

Into the maze
Start of five days sea kayaking journey
The aim for the first day will be to introduce you to the sea kayaks and equipment.
After going through the basics we will start our journey, exploring the islands and
Our launch site Mon is located in a sheltered bay but soon we will round the first islands and
see a maze spreading out in all directions.
After a full day exploring we will find a suitable spot and wild camp for the night.
Each day will follow on for the last, our route will vary according to the weather and our
groups ability and wishes.
This is the joy of kayaking in this area, flexibility. After a day exploring we will look for that
perfect spot and make an island our own for the night. Take a dip in the sea, cook up a meal
and enjoy a glorious sunset. We are alone in the wild and it's absolutely beautiful.
