Senja advanced sea kayak camp

Always been wanting to take your kayak skills to the next level, feel more safe and confident out on a kayak trip, or explore rockhopping and learn how to surf your kayak?

This is your chance to improve your kayak skills while spending an incedibly adventurous week on Senja, the fairytale island!

The aim of this 6 days kayak camp is to improve your technical kayak skills, risk and safety skills and prepare you to kayak indenpendant in 3* conditions. We will perfectionize some of the techniques and rescues you learned during the basic kayak course, learn more effective methods to control and turn your kayak, learn more advanced rescues and work on your safety, first aid and navigation skills. We will also prepare you how to kayak safely in a rock and surfzone, and how to rescue yourself or your partner if a problem would arise.

Upon completion of this week you will receive a “Teknikkurs våtkort” (certification from the Norwegian Paddle Association, similar to EPP3).
