Courses and guided kayak tours in one of Sweden's best paddling waters - Kosterhavet National Park
Gliding right along with the waves is really something special! We almost always see seabirds, seals sometimes. The light, the sound, the healthy algae that sway around the islands. You get the feeling that you have actually experienced the Kosterhavet! It is100% eco-think. From what we do to what we eat.
"Take only photographs - leave only footprints".
I am a trained biologist and have worked with outdoor education. I am a certified guide and have my kayak training at BCU, coach and leader. Has been a resident of Koster for a long time and know the way among islets and skerries. I will take you to my favorite places. You will have a rich experience both knowledge-wise and emotionally! We are in Sweden's only marine national park. Welcome!
You get to make close-to-nature observations and use all your senses! Smell the life of the fish farmer, Koster's history, house types, geology and much more. Not least a fantastic view from Valfjäll. The guide gives you opportunities to discover Sydkoster in a way you wouldn't do on your own! We drive in all weathers.
Time: approx. 3 hours
Cost: SEK 300/pp incl. rental bike Number: 6-20 people.
Add a coffee from Kosters Trädgårdar's bakery and it will be perfect!

Koster is amazing to see as you hike. We have time for details in nature and culture. The orchids at the edge of the ditch in spring. The color of the house knots. True and perhaps some untrue stories... North or South island.

A total experience with Stefan as guide. He is more or less a wikipedia all on his own and also a brilliant storyteller.
Thank you for your patience as instructor, and for a magnificent day on the water among what must surely be the most beautiful islands on earth.
Guide with extreme empathy and local knowledge. Best experience on vacation in summer 2021 :)
Stefan is a living encyclopedia of nature and a history book at the same time! I have also learned more about kayak technique. Highly recommended!
Very good course! Good and educational instructor. We had a great day!
Thanks for wonderful hybrid guiding of both nature and culture! There is simply no better presentation of your beautiful Koster! We enjoyed! Many thanks.
OH MY GOD that was great! Got inspired by both Koster and kayak!
I took a chance and called Koster Kayak Tours and at very short notice was able to join a fantastic evening tour. Perfect conditions with sun and almost no wind and the fact that the tour boats had gone home meant that we got to experience the Koster archipelago almost completely alone. Above all, we had a safe and flexible guide in Stefan, who alternated paddling technique with interesting facts about life around the sea as well as fascinating anecdotes from Koster's history. Thanks!!! I will be back!
Fantastic hosting. Perfect weather conditions and good food were the finishing touches. A day to remember. Thanks!
Extraordinary kayak tour in the Koster archipelago. Thanks a lot Stefan for your equipment and tips. We had a gorgeous day. We saw a lot of birds and seals. The sandy beaches, the clear waters, the rocky mazes; it was the most perfect day.
BY TRAIN / BUS
If you come to Strömstad by train or bus, look towards the sea as soon as you get off. Walk along the water with Restaurant Skagerack on the right. Round the corner at Café Backlund. On the other side you will see Strömstad Infocenter and the Kosterbåten departs opposite. The walk takes 5 minutes. See Västtrafik for current bus and train times.
The easiest way to park the car is below the hospital, which is opposite the boat to Koster islands. Parking is subject to a fee in summer and free in winter. Parkingmap
THE CRUISE BOAT AND A SMALL WALK
Departs from the northern port, see timetable. You get off in Långagärde on Sydkoster. From there you walk along the road straight ahead for about 400 metres. You will find Kosters Trädgårdar on the right. That's where we have our base.
KAYING TOURS & COURSES
We start and end courses and tours in the bathing cove "Stran", see the map below, and can head right out into the archipelago! Welcome!
