In summer, we arrange kayaking out of Henningsvær daily.
This takes place in calm waters suitable for those with little or no kayaking experience. You receive a solid introduction before we embark on the double kayaks from Skata in Henningsvær where our knowledgeable and certified guides meet you 20 minutes before departure. The duration is three hours. We emphasise giving you the best possible experience, and chances are you will see sea eagle and other birds. We kayak in crystal clear waters and can also see sea life at the bottom of the sea from the surface.
Lofotens nature has unique and spectacular contrasts and kayaking is a great way to experience these. When you embark in a sea kayak you practically sit on the surface of the sea and can navigate it using your own bodily strength. You can appreciate Lofotens dramatic mountains from a wholly new perspective when you paddle up close to them. It is an experience almost as majestic as standing on top of them.
The combination of silence, raw nature on all sides, and full freedom of motion, makes sea kayaking one of our most popular adventures. You cannot get closer to nature than this.

Recommendations to get the most out of the experience
The weather in Lofoten changes a lot from day to day, which is some of the charm of the islands. You should dress to suit the weather, and our recommendation is that on a cold summer day you wear wool underwear. It wicks moist away from your body, and you will not get cold even if you sweat or become wet. Since you are in motion throughout the trip, we have no further recommendations for what to wear, but it is a good idea to bring a change of clothing. Bring a water bottle too.
Children over the age of 10 who can swim can participate in the company of an adult.
This is included:
Dry suit in case of rain
Experienced kayak guide
Splash cover, paddle, and life vest
In Henningsvær our kayak trips depart from Lofoten Arctic Hotel, Skata. The hotel is located on the left-hand side before the last bridge when you are heading towards Henningsvær.
