Kayak paddling is a fun, eco-friendly and active way to discover the exciting and beautiful surroundings of Lofoten. This course stretches over two days and will get you a first-step wet card out of five levels recognized by the Norwegian Paddle Association.
Glide quietly through crystal clear fjord waters, smell the fresh breeze from the sea and get a chance to enjoy nature and spot wildlife from the kayak. Sounds tempting? Northern Norway is a paradise for kayak paddling, with fantastic views everywhere you turn.
Regardless of previous experience or fitness level, it normally doesn't take very long to get started with kayak paddling, but as always, good water safety requires some practice and knowledge. That's why this course goes through all the theory and practical training that you need to stay safe out in the waters. Aside from an ergonomic and efficient paddle technique and skills like getting in and out of a kayak, you will learn to do self- and assisted rescue if the kayak overturns. Once you have finished this course, you will be certified with the first level wet card from the Norwegian Paddle Association. This certification gives you access to many other kayak adventures and rentals provided by Pukka and other operators along the norwegian coast.
We meet up by the beach in fantastic Lyngvær, located about 20 minutes with car from Svolvær or Henningsvær. Mobile toilets and fresh water for rinse is available near the beach. The Lyngvær coral islands where we will practice are locally known as the pearl of Lofoten, with a rich flora and fauna, pristine beaches and turquoise waters – optimal for kayaking. As we make progress during the course, you will have a lot of time to explore this amazing archipelago. Enjoy two active days of kayaking with Pukka!
