Swin run safari on Ormskär

One of the most beautiful areas in the Nämdö Archipelago with shallow bays, lagoons, narrow straits and clear water. We paddle south from Idöborg for about 40 minutes, pull up the kayaks on the rocks and establish a "basecamp". Then we put on wetsuits and shoes to look south over rocks and water. When we return to the kayaks we eat lunch and then paddle back to Idöborg.

Time: Half day

Price: SEK 1,000 / person

Open water swimming around Långskär

We swim from Idöborg over to Långskär and follow the shoreline south, into the shallow "canal" between Långskär and Ormskär and Björkkobben. There are several places where you can swim across the "canal". This means that experienced swimmers can swim a little longer and the slower ones can turn earlier. However, we always swim at least two together.

Maximum distance 3,000 meters.

Time: 45 min - 1.5 h

Price: SEK 300 / person, rental of wetsuit and buoy: SEK 300

If we walk quietly, we may see some of the island's many deer.
