The ARK56 kayaking trail runs through the whole of the Blekinge Archipelago.
There’s one joined-up trail and lots of shorter loops too. Glide between skerries, round islands and following the shore of promontories through a world heritage site and a unique archipelago where the forest runs all the way down to the shore. Magnificent oak trees shade peaceful coastal meadows and the app comes up with suggested routes, loops and places to stop for a break, as well as accommodation, restaurants and other activities. Step ashore at one of the many hubs for services or to stretch your legs on one of our short walks or longer walking trails. Or hire a bike and take to two wheels instead of the water. Hubs often have places to hire kayaks too if you don’t have your own. The kayak trail is a great start to your ARK56 adventure. The Blekinge Archipelago is ideal for canoeing professionals and beginners.
