Description

It is a unique adventure to paddle around an entire island, through thousands of small islands and reef. Adventure desire awakened and we feel that first-time explorers who do not really know what to wait around the next headland. Maybe some beautiful waterfront, a whale that blows or an otter playing on the beach? The trip around Smøla is a journey through varied landscape. Islands where we paddle the tidal flows, and reaches the bays and coves that are only possible with the kayak.

Smøla consist of more than 4000 islands and reef, and it has Norway’s largest ”low-land prairie”, with large, flat
marshlands. The west side of the island has thousands of small islands and islets. To the north, Veiholmen stretches out into the North Sea like an index finger. To the east, sheltered coves and islands form a delightful archipelago. To the south there are magnificent panoramic views towards the Tustna mountains, while the countryside on
the islands of Edøy and Kuli is very distinctive. In Smøla you can catch fine trout in small lakes. Around Smøla, sea eagles soar majestically over the landscape, and offshore bite big cod willing.

This tour around the island is a fairly long trip for those with less experience. So here we have set up the tour for up to 4 days with paddling, to make it comfortable and flexible for everyone

Security and comfort:
Our basecamp, where we start and end the tour is at the charming Smøla Havstuer, where they prepare good and
local food, and have the sauna ready for us – on the deck. During the trip we stay in tents and the last night we will stay in a light house, just outside Veiholmen. With the tents and food in our kayak, we have the flexibility to paddle as far as we want to each day.
The certified guide is equipped with all security equipment needed for the group. If the weather is really bad, we can use a security. We will bring enough food and warm drinks for all days.
