Winter kayaking in Ålesund
Yes, indeed – kayaking during the winter season! This is the perfect trip for unexperienced kayakers or people who simply wants a nice and different introduction to the Art Nouveau town of Ålesund.
During the winter season, the Gulf stream supplies the waters with good temperatures as well as really clear waters, which will give you the opportunity to see fishes & starfish. This winter kayaking trip is without a doubt one of the most adventurous and exciting ways to explore Ålesund during winter!
The meeting and starting point for this activity is the Uteguiden activity centre in Ålesund city, a perfect starting point for kayak trips. Here you will get kitted out with all the necessary equipment and get a safety briefing before starting the trip. On these trips we use stable tandem kayaks which will ensure us a great experience for all levels.
All the guides are kayak guides and have a great local knowledge – something that will assure that you get a great day out on the water.
