What You’ll Do

Depending on where you choose to enjoy your kayaking adventure, you will meet your Schibevaag Adventures guide either at the Nusfjord dock or at the Schibevaag Adventures headquarters at Flakstad beach. You will be outfitted with a flotation device, kayak, and paddle and given instruction. Be sure to wear clothing that you do not mind getting wet. A few splashes are a definite possibility out on the water. 

Before heading out on the adventure, your guide will take you through the safety procedures and explain what the day will entail. Then it is time for the real fun! Your 3-hour guided tour will take you along the beautiful and impressive Lofoten coastline where you will see the wide variety of wildlife: crabs, seals, sea eagles, puffins, heron, mink, rabbits, cormorants, sea urchin, unique Nusfjord seagulls, colorful seaweed and even whale and porpoise. 

You do not need a "våtkort", or kayaking license, to go on the guided kayak tour. But, if you do have a "våtkort" and would like to rent a kayak to paddle without a guide, this can be arranged. 

Following the adventure, be sure to warm up with a cup of hot cocoa at Karoline's restaurant and cafe in Nusfjord!
