Trip I: Toftosen
Glesvær - Narøy - Glesvær 2,5t t/r 12km - middels
Partly sheltered trip. Start at Water Sports Centre, continue south towards "Litla Risøyna" passing "Måsholmen". Beautiful coves and bays on the way. Continue south towards "Store Vardøy" and "Narøy" where the trip turns north along the eastern part of "Toftosen". At the end a short crossing back to the Water Sports Centre. The natural route is to follow land in this area avoiding paddling in the middle of the open fjord. This is due to heavy leisure traffic in the area. "Toftosen" is exposed to winds, both northerly and southerly.
Trip II: Ramsholmen
Glesvær - Ramsholmen - Glesvær 6km 1t t/r - lett
Starting from Water Sport Centre towards northeast. Follow land north trough the channel, but keep out of way of the fish farms in "Porsavika". Continue north past "Kvernavika" crossing east at the most narrow part towards "Store Ramsholmen". Follow the small islets south trough "Huldholmen", "Bergsholmen" and "Dotholmen". Around "Kyrkjesundet" you will find many nice landings in the bays and coves. Continue northwest along "Toftatangen" before paddling back towards "Glesvær" and the Water Sports Centre. Protected area, but there are narrow passages and leisure traffic so be aware of other users of the waters.
