An introductory course in kayaking and a guided tour
If someone mentions the history of Trollhättan most folks might think about Nohab, SAAB, the floodgates or the power station of Olidan. Fact is though that out history stretches further back than that. Come along to our town's forgotten cradle, the leafy Isles of Stallbacka.
Long before the pharaohs of Egypt let build the first pyramids, the first settlers of Trollhättan settled down at this site, it is believed. Since then, the river, the falls, and the islands is an area crammed with stories and legends. From the wellknown quince of Beowulf to the rising and fall of the Kalmar union. Together we learn to know the castle Ekholm which were one of the last outposts in the Sweden of the Folkunga dynasty, and the "King with no pants" who from a chaos of war and the Black Death would rise to create a new Scandinavian Kingdom.
Our kayaks are safe and stable, even the total newbie can come along on our trips. During the introductory course we'll go through basic security and paddle technique before launching the kayaks. We'll then continue to improve our paddle technique throughout the whole trip.
Tour length: 4 - 4.5 hours including the review on-shore and an island lunch stop
Available: May til September
