Join us for a half-day tour around the base camp Kalvøy Maritime Center.
After meeting up at Fiskepiren, you will take the expressboat to the basecamp at Kalvøy, where the kayaks are.
This 30 minute boat trip is quite spectacular by itself. The boat moors at several islands before ending up at Kalvøy, which is the final destination and starting point for the kayak-tour.
When arriving at Kalvøy, there will be a 10 minute walk on a gravel road to the dressing room. At Kalvøy Maritime Park there are toilet facilities. Before we enter the kayaks, you will change in to dry-suits, neoprene shoes and life jackets.
From the bay at Kalvøy we go south, or north, it depends on the wind. We are on the west-coast of Norway where the wind changes frequently.
The English speaking guide and instructor will take you through the wonderful landscape of small islands and reef, staying close to land. The length of the journey will be adjusted to your skill set.
Like all of our kayak-trips, wildlife is abundant. A lot of birds, and if we are lucky, we can see seal and mink.
Close to land, under your kayak, you can also explore the seabed. If you paddle very quiet, you might see some fish and crabs.
While kayaking, you will wear a drysuit, neoprene shoes and life jackets. Use outdoors clothes in this activity.
