YOUR KAYAKING & CAMPING HOLIDAY

Bohuslän Sunset
Scandinavian Kayaking Adventures

Decide When to Go

Our season runs from early May until Mid September.

May to mid-June

May is a lovely month, buzzing with anticipation for the upcoming summer. The leaves have appeared on the trees and flowers have started to bloom. You may awake to a springtime frost which soon melts away when the sun rises above the horizon. Early in the season, you will find it's very quiet around the archipelago with not many other boats out on the water. In June, being so high up North, the daytime is very long and it hardly gets dark at night meaning you can kayak into the evening whilst you look for the perfect camping spot on one of the many islands.

Mid-June to mid-August

The sea has started to warm as we enter the prime summer months. Temperatures can hit 25c in June, July and August, very occasionally edging up towards 30c. This is when Bohuslän Coast really comes alive, with more pleasure craft out on the water and the fishing villages fill with tourists looking to get a taste of some of the famous Bohuslän seafood. The Swedish summer is characterised by seemingly endless days. Even in peak season, as the evening draws in, the pleasure boats leave and you are often able to get an island all to yourself. Don’t miss the chance to enjoy swimming in the clear waters off the coast and all other perks of the high season.

Mid-August to mid-September

The days have started to cool down but the sea is just about warm enough to enjoy an evening swim. Sunsets are at their best at this time of the year and the final rays lighting the pink Bohuslän granite is a sight you will remember forever. At this time of the year, you will find it's very quiet around the archipelago with very few people around. The nights are darker again meaning the stars are visible again and on a clear night you can see the milky way streak across the night sky. An evening spent by the campfire is highly recommended before you prepare to snuggle in your sleeping bag for the night.
