Think of Northern Norway and you probably conjure up images of deep fjords, clean water and mountains rising from the sea. The rugged archipelago beneath the Svartisen glacier invites you to paddle amongst some of the 18,000 islands.

Beginners and advanced kayakers will love this landscape and the endless variation. 

These surroundings are perfect for a range of guided kayak activities. We have several trips, courses and difficulty levels to choose from.


Level of Difficulty

No previous experience is needed for most of our trips, however a moderate level of agility is required. Our trips will be adapted to the size and physical level of the group. In wintertime paddling becomes more challenging, so it´s an advantage if you have some kayak and/or outdoor experience beforehand.

We have 2 different levels on the Extended Kayak Trip:

  • Beginner – fits for those who have a EPP1/BCU1/introkurs NPF certification or have similar experience.
  • Advanced – fits for those who have a EPP2/BCU2star/grunnkurs certification or similar paddle experience.


  • Kayak Courses: 1 & 2 days
  • Midnight Sun Kayak: 2.5 hours
  • Day trips: 4.5 hours
  • Multiday adventures: Beginner level up to 3 days, Advanced level up to 7 days.
  • Winter trips: 3 hours or 6 hours


We can organize kayak adventures in the whole county, however our usual starting point is the boat harbor Vallvågen in Engavågen. Engavågen is about 2-3 hrs south of Bodø and 5 hours north of Mo i Rana.

GPS coordinates: 66*47´43.0″N 13*30´00.7″E
