Of course! We have kayaks that are stable and beginner adapted, but if you feel unsafe we usually recommend paddling together with someone in a two-man kayak that is the most stable kayak. Our staff is available on the jetty for a routine review of what is good to think about and help you get in and out of the kayak.

We also organize a kayak course for beginners. You can reade more about it here.

To rent a kayak at Långholmen kayak, you must be over 18 years of age (or accompanied by a guardian).

Yes, even if you borrow a life jacket from us, you need to be able to swim.

It is mandatory to wear a life jacket.

Of course, it is possible to paddle with children of different ages. When paddling with children, it is important to keep track of the weather and only go out in conditions that you yourself master. If you are a very experienced kayaker, it is usually possible to paddle with a small child on your lap in a one-man kayak. If you are two adults, you can instead rent a two-man kayak where one of the adults sits with the child at the front of the kayak, while the other takes care of the paddling. If the child is big enough to paddle by himself, it also works, as long as an adult comes out on the water in their own kayak and the adult feels safe in the kayak and can help the child if necessary.

All our kayaks are stable and it´s very rarely happens that someone overturns. The most common is to overturn when boarding or disembarking. In the unlikely event that you tip over, you are wearing a life jacket, but it can also feel safe to know that you are not stuck in the kayak but can easily get out in case of an accident. For your own safety, we recommend paddling near land.

Wear comfortable clothes so you can easily move around. If it is windy and / or rainy, bring a jacket and an extra change of clothes. It can also be good to bring a bottle of water and sunscreen.

There is room where you can leave bags and shoes, but we take no responsibility for lost valuables. There is plenty of space in the kayaks for luggage and you can also rent waterproof bags (drybags) from us that you can have your valuables in and bring along during the tour.

The season runs from May to September. The high season is in July – August. For paddling before and after the season, contact us for more information!
