Join us for a memorable kayak adventure, starting from Stokmarknes. Get ready to experience the mighty nature and wildlife of Vesterålen while moving silently across the arctic waters.
The tour is easy and does not require any prior kayaking experience. As your safety is our highest priority, our guides will begin with a safety briefing followed by some kayaking technique tuition to help you manage the kayak in the best possible way.
When you feel safe and ready, we start kayaking towards an island called Risøya, located close to shore. Here the beaches have white sands and the waters are crystal clear. During the tour, your guides will tell you about the cultural and natural history of the area. They will also supply you with information about conservation efforts, which is at the heart of everything we do.
On your way towards the island, you have a great chance of encountering different wildlife species, such as sea birds, eagles or seals. You might catch sight of life beneath the sea surface, and even fish some of the local delicacies yourself.
Arriving at the island, we will go ashore at one of the beaches. Here you can enjoy your lunch and we will provide hot beverages such as coffee, cacao and tea. After lunch, we will leave the island behind and return to Stokmarknes. If the weather is good, we will paddle a different route back.
