Beyond Archipelago

Luse@2x

4 day Music & Wellness Festival
6–9 September

A collaboration with Beyond Adventure for a wildly unique music festival in the outer archipelago, only accessible by kayak.

Unleash your wildest self – Beyond Archipelago is a self-guided festival adventure! Make your way by sea kayak from the mainland towards our party island in the outer archipelago for three nights of wild camping and music.

By day, feed your soul with a program of wellness activities including yoga, stand up paddle boarding, wild swimming, fishing and meditation. By night, dance around roaring fires to incredible music and unleash your wildest self.

Top notch equipment - you’ll find yourself far away from civilisation completely surrounded by water and wilderness. After well over a decade of gearing up hopeful adventurers, rain, wind or shine, we have landed on the highest quality equipment that is sure to bring you comfort in the wild.

Kayaking through a maze of islands - Saint Anna & Gryt are amazing for kayaking - the islands are close with no major thoroughfairs for larger boats, just the odd sailing boat in the distance. Paddling conditions are relatively easy with no tides or swells. Beginners are welcome!

Day by day itinerary ...

Day 1 - Tunes at the fisherman's hut

Your festival adventure begins with a short paddle to Missjö island for a liberated night of wild camping and the first party of the weekend in a fisherman’s hut.

Day 2 & 3 - A far out party island

After a refreshing night of forest slumber, jump back in your kayak and navigate through the maze of islands for the main event. Here you’ll be free to explore the natural beauty of Aspöja and the archipelago all you like. Just get yourself back to the main camp for a steady rotation of great music and untamed parties each night.

Day 4 - Through the maze and back

Your last day is a beautiful paddle back to the mainland from your party spot in the outer archipelago. A little exhausted but envigorated and happy, we make our way home.
