Kayaking on the Swedish West Coast

A close to nature experience

To kayak is to be a part of the sea & nature. To get silently between cobs & skerries, through narrow straits, to feel the smell of seaweed and the taste of salt, that is life in a kayak.

Rent a kayak

Renting a kayak on the west coast is wonderful. Find your own bay around one of the thousand islands the Bohuslän coast has to offer.


Kayak courses

Start by taking a course with us. For you who have not paddled kayak / SUP before, but want to get a good start on a lifelong interest.


Guided Tours

A guided day trip among Bohuslän’s cobs & skerries is an unforgettable experience with the saltiness of the sea and coffee on a small island.

Are you also stuck in the squirrel wheel?

Many of us have experienced that it is difficult to get everyday life, work, family and leisure together. But there are those who have managed to break the pattern of constant bad conscience, juggling and hunting and instead have begun to prioritize what is most important over time – namely our health, both physically and mentally. That nature has a healing effect on our well-being is nothing new and we many who can sign that it is true.

And if you have not yet discovered it, welcome to the sea and to Kajaktiv Tjörn. Who knows, – maybe it will be your first step to create new and positive habits.

Your experience and the feeling of freedom that a day among cobs & inserts gives, motivates and strengthens not only you but also us, we who work with the most fun there is. A day at sea is a day you rarely regret.

A warm welcome to Kajaktivtjörn and experience Bohuslän at its best!

About us

Kajaktiv AB was founded in 1995 by active paddlers in Dalarna by the Västerdalälven river. The kayak center at Tjörn was opened 18 years later in 2013 when we realized that there was a need to be able to offer our guests a kayak center with one of the world's best paddling waters at our jetty. Your experience, joy and security are key words that permeate our business all the way. Whether you buy a kayak or a guided tour, our aim is to provide service and experiences with a smile. Welcome to our kayak center at Tjörn!

A sustainable Archipelago

Our kayak center's ambition is to make such a small impression in nature and contribute to a sustainable business and a coast free from litter and plastic. We handle all waste that guests take home for the kayak trip in our recycling bins. A few times a season, staff paddle out into the archipelago and collect plastic and debris that floats ashore on islands and in bays. All our kayaks in the rental fleet have a lifespan of 25-30 years, after which the plastic is recycled and goes back into the cycle and becomes new kayaks.
