Jennifer Garner and her 12-year-old daughter, Violet, had a scary moment on their vacation!

The 46-year-old actress and her eldest child) flew out to Stockholm, Sweden, to spend some time together before Violet starts high school in the fall. While there, the mother-daughter duo took a wonderful kayak ride that went a little off course.

After they paddled too far, Garner realized they were lost, and had to go to the kayak rental company to send someone to save them.

“On a pre-middle-school snuck away with my oldest,” the mother of three captioned an Instagram photo of her and Violet in the kayak after the trial. “I have for us is lost in a kayak? Yes. Have we paddle as hard as we could for 100 hours and end up in a shipping lane? I’m afraid so. We had to be saved? Yup. #thesunsetwasabigupside #shenevercomplained #thankyoumattias #welovedyousweden.”

The “Camping” star also took to her Instagram Story to thank Mattias — the man who came to their rescue — referring to him as ” our savior.”

The kayak company is also a report about the incident, calling it “quite an adventure.”

Mattias, one of the champions of the Långholmen kayak team, got a call from Jennifer Garner one evening. She was lost in the waters of Stockholm with her daughter in one of our double kayaks. Mattias was in a kayak of his own and began to search for them. Fortunately, he found them not too far away and was able to guide them to our rental. Quite an adventure! 😃👏🏼 Thank you @jennifer.garner for your visit, we hope to see you again soon! ❤️

Back in July, Garner presented the Arthur Ashe Courage Award of child sexual abuse survivors at the ESPY Awards. ET caught up with her backstage, and she opened up about how she talks with her children about difficult issues. Next to Violet, she and her ex-husband, Ben Affleck, have two children, the 6-year-old son Samuel and 9-year-old daughter Seraphina.

“It is so important to find a way to talk with our children and help them know that they are always safe to come to us, they can tell you everything,” Garner said. “I bumbled my way through [a talk on] the way everyone would do it, but I just think it’s very important to get the conversation going.”
