Kragerø with its many freshwater lakes and a wonderful archipelago is a paradise for paddling enthusiasts and offers a varied terrain.
Paddling is a great way to relax from a hectic workaday life. You get close to nature where you can enjoy peace and tranquility, while getting some exercise too. Kragerø is a paradise for paddling enthusiasts and offers a varied terrain. In the forests around Kragerø city are pleasant and quiet freshwater lakes which are suitable for paddling (f.eks. Gofjell) and then you have the big archipelago with its total of 495 islands and islets! In narrow straits, it is relatively quiet paddling, while outside the island Jomfruland the seas offers bigger challenges! A paddling trip on Portør starting at Portør Harbor is absolut to recommend. See pictures above!
You can join the new group "Kragerø Padleklubb" on Facebook. This group is for those who would like to meet regularly for paddling and want to be social and share this adventure with others. The members of this group are also able to give you some more information and of course can recommend you nice paddle areas in Kragerø. Welcome!
The group "Kayaking in Kragerø" (Kajakk padling i Kragerø) could also be interesting for you!
