Senja beginner sea kayak camp

Always been dreaming of kayaking independent in crystal blue waters, between big mountains, fjords and islands?

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

During this kayak week you will learn everything you need to know to go out paddling safe on your own in calm waters. We will first spend two full days learning the basics of safe sea kayaking, different paddle strokes, different ways to steer your kayak and self and buddy rescues.

The  remaining four days of this week we will use to improve our new skills, during two day trips on 2 different beautiful locations on Senja, and one “2 day kayak trek” with an overnight in tents on our private island!

Upon completion of this week you will receive a “våtkort” (certification from the Norwegian Paddle Association, similar to EPP2), which will allow you to rent kayak gear everywhere in Norway / Europe and follow more advanced courses or join in kayak club activities.
