What to expect

Lofoten is considered to be a kayaker's paradise by many. Its calm waters coupled with dramatic scenery make for a pleasant experience, and a sea kayak allows you to navigate freely using your own bodily strength as you practically sit on the surface of the sea.

This tour starts in Svolvær harbour where your guide will meet you and provide you with the equipment for the trip. As you paddle through the Lofoten's unique scenery, your guide will talk to you about the history and culture of the area. The kayaks used are all stable tandem kayaks and your guide will give you all the necessary instructions before you start.

If you're curious but never tried kayaking before, this is the tour for you as it's well adapted to beginners and no previous experience is needed. If the weather report predicts rain or wind, make sure you bring a water repellent jacket with you.
