Winter kayaking in Ålesund

  • Kayaking

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.

This winter kayaking trip is without a doubt one of the most adventurous and exciting ways to explore Ålesund during winter! 

Tour description

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 meet your guide and get kitted out with all the necessary equipment and get a safety briefing before starting the trip. On this trip, you paddle in tandem kayaks which will ensure you a great experience for all levels. When you get kitted with the dry suite and get down into the kayak, it's actually really warm! Your whole lower body will be warm down in the kayak and the upper part will be moving most of the time.

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. Your guide on the tour is certified and have great local knowledge – something that will assure that you get a great day out on the water.
