We offer kayaking in calm waters with lively stories from Svolvær’s rich cultural history. During the cold winter months the light is magical and makes kayaking an out-of-the-ordinary experience.

In a sea kayak you practically sit on the surface of the sea and navigate it using your own bodily strength. The combination of silence, raw nature on all sides and full freedom of motion makes sea kayaking one of our most popular adventures.

We use stable double kayaks on our trips and all necessary equipment is included. Our guide welcomes you at our base in Svolvær harbor, and gives you the necessary instructions and adjusts the equipment for the trip. This trip takes two hours and is tailored to those with little or no prior experience kayaking, but who would like to learn about Lofoten’s history and culture from the shore line.
