Rent kayak and MTB in the High Coast, Sweden

Hemsö kayak rental is located on the beautiful island Hemsön in the High Coast, just north of Härnösand.

Welcome to our rental - a great place to start your adventure in the High Coast. Whether you want to paddle or cycle, we are happy to help.

We can offer you two double kayaks och six single kayaks. The kayaks have spacious storage for packing and are comfortable to sit in. All kayaks have rudder.

We help you plan a suitable trip - from half a day trip to a multi-day tour. Before you start paddling we go through the equipment and we adjust the kayak for your length. We advise you on how to paddle effectively and tell you what happens if you roll over. Furthermore, we also want to inform you about the right of public access. If you have not paddled before, we can accompany you out on the water for a short while.

We can also offer fully suspension MTBs from Giant - on the island and in the High Coast you'll find many great tracks to cycle! Read more about our bike rental >>

How to get here:

To get to the island, take a car ferry from ”Strinningen”. If you enter ”Hemsö kajak” on Google maps  you will get a correct route guidance to our rental. The ferry departs every 30 minutes and is free.

Please note that you must book a kayak in advance. We are not always in place at the rental. Please mail info@hemsokajak.se, visit our Facebook profile or phone
