  • Try a new adventure sport as you learn to kayak in a Norwegian fjord 

  • Immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the Lofoten archipelago  

  • Learn about the area’s nature, history, and culture from an expert local guide 

Reine is often lauded as one of Norway’s prettiest fishing villages, and on this beginner-friendly kayaking tour you can experience its beauty first hand. Taking to Reinefjord’s sheltered waters, you’ll paddle round small islets, spot lines of bright-red rorbu (stilted fisherman’s cabins), and take in the unmistakable scent of skrei as it dries on racks along the shore. 

As you navigate the calm, crystal-clear waters, your experienced and knowledgeable guide will regale you with local stories about the area’s history, culture, and nature. Keep an eye out for schools of fish in the fjord below and seabirds in the sky above. If the tide is favourable, you might even get the chance to try some edible seaweed, known as the “truffle of the sea”.
