  • Try a new adventure sport as you learn to kayak on the Arctic Sea

  • Immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the Lofoten archipelago

  • Learn about the fascinating nature, history, and culture of Svolvær

This excursion starts a short walking distance from where your ship docks in the town of Svolvær, capital of the Lofoten islands. It is tailored to those with little or no experience kayaking, but who are active and in good physical health. 

After meeting your guide, you’ll begin with a safety briefing that will give you detailed instructions on the dos and don’ts of kayaking. Next, we suit up with dry suits and life vests before pairing off to board stable tandem kayaks. 

After an initial warm-up to find your sea legs and get used to the action of paddling, it’s time for us to set off.  

Enjoy a peaceful two-hour kayaking trip that takes in the natural beauty that the Lofoten archipelago is so famous for.  

As you go, your guide will point out places of interest along the coastline and tell you more about the islands’ rich history and culture.
