Kayaking from Svolvær
This three-hour-long kayaking trip gives you an experience of Lofoten's spectacular landscape from the perspective of the sea where the landscape shine in a whole different dimension.
When embarking the sea kayak, you are on the surface of the sea & navigating it with your bodily strength gives you a chance to experience the nature in harmony.
We use stable double kayaks on our trips. Our guide meets you at our base in Svolvær harbour and provides you with the necessary instructions and adjusts your equipment for the journey.
The area we kayak from Svolvær harbour is calm, and well suited for beginners. No qualifications are necessary. The experienced ones can use a single kayak. If you have a camera, you are welcome to bring it along. You will find many opportunities to take great pictures.
You should dress to suit the weather, and on a cold summer day, we recommend to wear wool undergarment as it wicks moisture away from your body and keeps you warm. 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.
