The northern archipelago is one of our absolute favourite spots for exploring from the kayak! There are around 50 islands in this freshwater archipelago paradise the chances are good you’ll find your very own island! Our rental base is located at the Olshammar harbour, at Aspa Bruk. The facility here is a self-serve. We’re open for you all summer June-August.

Included: When you rent your kayak at Vätternkajak this is included in the price: kayak, life west, paddle, spray skirt and map.
Time: You get your kayak at 10.00 am and keep them for as long as you’d like, but they should be brought back no later than 9.00 am the following day, cleaned in their boxes ready for the next excursion.
Booking: Reservations can easily be made online: https://vatternevent.checkfront.com/reserve/ After making a reservation you’ll receive an email holding instructions on how you lock up and release the kayaks from their storages.
What to pack? Dress comfortably! Oftentimes paddlers have dressed too warmly, when you paddle along the shore you generally stay warm. Cotton gets heavy when wet and dries slowly, functional clothes with rainwear on top is a better idea. Bring a bottle of water that you can keep close. In the double kayaks there are waterproof pockets for smaller gadgets such as mobile phones and cameras. Larger bags and things you don’t need whilst paddling can be stored under the front and rear hatches.
