Our goal was to find the perfect tropical kayaking destination.
Now we have found it and want to share it with you!
I have been kayaking since 1991 in Sweden and Norway. The longest trip was from Helsinki in Finland to Stockholm in Sweden. Wintertime I have been kayaking in several tropical surroundings, 12 expeditions to the Maldives, Burma-Thailand, Belize, Philippines and West Papua. I have also kayaked in Western Greenland and done hiking there. I love off-pist skiing in Norway. When possible I work out in the nature who I share the love to together with Tuuli and our son. Founder of Millekul Adventures.
I live in the Finnish archipelago and know it as my back pocket. I built my first kayak 1990 and have been kayaking since then in arctic areas and the tropics. I love nature and to be outdoors hiking, biking and skating whenever possible. Misool is close to my heart and I will be there helping our guests, but right now most of my time belongs to our little son and daughter who are still too young to paddle.

I fell in love with kayaking as a teenager and have spent most of my life instructing worldwide, designing kayaks and equipment and writing books and articles about kayaking. Age 24 I became first to circumnavigate Iceland by kayak, and later crossed Hudson Strait from Baffin Island, explored northern Labrador, and led trips to the Faeroe Islands, Arctic Norway, Shetland, Alaska and more. I also enjoy guitar and open canoe. www.nigelkayaks.com

My wife introduced me to kayaking. My first kayak Expedition (2013) was the circumnavigation of the largest crater lake in the world, Lake Toba. That particular journey plus Justine Curgenven’s ‘This Is The Sea’ video changed my life. I can not get enough of kayak adventures ever since. As a citizen of West Java, I had some battles with the ‘mild’ Java Sea in the North, and with the mighty Indian Ocean in the South. Afterwards, I settled on a cool little dam among the mountains of West Java and devote my time preaching the art of kayaking there. But when Misool is calling who am I to resist?? More at @kayaknusa
Gilang Mutan / local guide
I am from indonesia, the nation with a thousand islands, a true paradise. I have kayaked since 2014 and have been kayaking to explore rivers and some beaches in Java. I am a part-time mountaineer, swimmer and nature lover. While at campus, I joined the nature lovers club, which focused on environment cases and outdoor activities. At every incident when people were lost in the mountains or in serious calamity I would always join the rescue operation.
