Rent a kayak at Långholmen kayak

Långholmen kayak wants to make it possible for everyone to see Stockholm from its most beautiful side - the water! At our kayak rental in Stockholm, you can rent a kayak regardless of whether you are a beginner or have paddled before. The scenic area and the calm waters around Långholmen, Reimersholme and Södermalm are the ideal places for kayaking. Renting a kayak and exploring Stockholm's inner city from the water is a fantastic experience, both for inexperienced and experienced paddlers. Långholmen Kayak's kayak rental is located in the quiet and peaceful Pålsund Canal. This is the best possible starting point for those who have never paddled before, with minimal wind and no waves. The highlights of a paddle trip with us are usually the peaceful environment with beautiful deciduous trees and wooden boats in the Pålsund Canal, and the fantastic views over the Old Town, the City Hall, north Mälarstrand and the Essinge Islands. Our friendly and service-oriented staff will help you with the equipment, give you tips on the paddling route according to the day's weather conditions, and instruct you in safety and paddling technique before the tour starts. We offer stable and easy-to-paddling kayaks, to make the paddling trip as easy as possible. We want everyone, regardless of experience level, to feel safe in their rental kayak.

With us at Långholmen kayak, the following is always included in the price when you rent a kayak – kayak, life jacket, paddle, canopy (splash cover) and map. Those who want can choose to add a waterproof packing bag to put water-sensitive possessions in.

How to rent?

You can either rent via our website or come visit us at the rental for drop in. If you rent a kayak via the website, everything is nice and easy as you simply have to state the name registered in the booking. This also ensures that we have kayaks available when you want to go paddling. You check in with the staff, leave your things on our shelf, then we help you find the right equipment. When you are ready for the paddle trip, you will receive a short briefing by our staff in safety and paddle technique. We then help you into the kayak and help you adjust the footrests. Then just glide out onto the peaceful water. When the paddle trip is over, we help you get out of the kayak and take care of all the equipment, while you can stretch your legs and relax with an ice cream in the sun.
