The unique nature in Lofoten has spectacular contrasts and kayaking is a great way to experience these.
When you embark in a sea kayak you practically sit on the surface of the sea and can navigate it using your own bodily strength. We use stable double kayaks on our trips and all necessary equipment is included. Our guide meets you at our base in Svolvær harbour and provides you with the necessary instructions and adjusts your equipment for the trip. This is a two-hour long trip, tailored to suit those who wish to try out kayaking or who have little experience, but who also wish to learn about Lofoten’s history and culture from the shoreline. The area we kayak from Svolvær harbour is calm, and well suited for beginners. No qualifications are necessary. Those who are experienced can use a single kayak.
Other timings and group arrangements on request.
This is included:
• Experienced kayak guide
• Splash cover, paddle, and life vest
Recommendations to get the most out of the experience
The weather in Lofoten changes a lot from day to day, which is some of the charm of the islands. You should dress to suit the weather, and our recommendation is that on a cold summer day you wear wool underwear. It wicks moist away from your body, and you will not get cold even if you sweat or become wet. Since you are in motion throughout the trip, we have no further recommendations for what you wear, but it is a good idea to bring a change of clothing. Bring a water bottle too.
Children over the age of 10 who can swim can participate in the company of an adult. Other timings and group arrangements on request.
