Linköping Kajak offers kayaks for rent and guided group kayak tours of Linköping and the Kinda Kanal. A perfect adventure for family and friends, as well as work mates.

The Kinda Kanal and the nearby lakes south of Linköping offer some of Sweden’s best waterways for paddling: almost 100 km of kayaking in an environment featuring beautiful scenery, canal locks, and historical sites such as castles and churches.


Some example tours to choose from are a full day of paddling in beautiful Lake Järmlunden, or an evening of kayaking topped off with sauna. There’s also adventure kayaking for those who enjoy challenging experiences, and let’s not forget the unique hike called Castle Paddling. Example tours: Castle Paddling, Sauna Paddling, Adventure Paddling, full- or half-day tour, or a two-day tour including a comfortable hotel accommodation by the lake or a beautiful sleeping out in the wild? All tours are arranged on request.
