Kayaking courses on the Helgeland coast

We offer a range of kayaking courses, ranging from introductory to advanced. We would also be happy to tailor a complete kayaking course just for you and your family, friends or colleagues. Our certified instructors will help you master the techniques and fine points of kayaking, while ensuring your safety.

The essence of all of our kayaking courses is to have fun while learning from an expert instructor. Playful adventures and frolicking on the water is part of gaining mastery. On all of our courses you learn the most important safety precautions, and on some courses you learn techniques for saving yourself and others.

Our participants find it extremely satisfying when they receive their NPF Wet Card, after competing the Basic Course in Sea Kayaking. This qualifies them to rent a kayak anywhere on the Helgeland coast and elsewhere in Norway.

Eventyrlig!

Vi hadde en fantastisk tid på den vakre øya Støtt med kajakkpadling. Guiden vår Magnus, tok oss med rundt øya der vi kunne sitte og se på havørn som fløy rett over hodet på oss. Vi spiste lunsj på en holme og svømte i havet (over den arktiske sirkelen) på en nydelig solrik dag. Senere den kvelden tok Magnus og Kristin oss med på RIB-tur til Rødøyløva som gav oss en spektakulær utsikt. Tenåringsguttene elsket det - spesielt turen hjem i RIB da solen gikk ned og volumet på radioen gikk opp! Jeg kan ikke anbefale dette høyt nok - det var et eventyr for livet å få oppleve underverkene ved den NordNorske kystlinjen og overraskelsene gjorde det virkelig spesielt. Takk skal dere ha!

Godt humør og mye Kunnskap!

Vi padlet kajakk over til Engenbreen for så å gå opp. Alt utstyr var inkludert. Hadde Dawid som guide, en fantastisk fyr med godt humør og mye kunnskap. Han tok oss så nærme breen som var forsvarlig. Helt fantastisk!
