All about the trip
This is a full-day kayaking tour where we spend many hours at sea, with included tasty hot meal. We will have a lot of fun this day. Join us and experience our lovely archipelago.
From the pier in Stavanger city center, we will take a high-speed vessel to the base camp, kayak, Kalvøypark. This 30 minutes ferry ride is quite an adventure. The boat moors at several islands before ending up at Kalvøy, which is the final destination and start of the kayak trip.
The view from Kalvøy is a panorama of Stavanger in the West, and the high mountains of the inland in the East. When arriving at Kalvøy, there will be a 10 minute walk on gravel road to the dressing room. At Kalvøy Maritime Park there are also toilet facilities.
The English speaking guide and the instructor will take you through the wonderful landscape of small islands and reeves, staying close to land. The length of the journey is adjusted to your skill level.
We start out in shallow waters until you are ready for real kayaking. After a short safety brief, we enter the kayaks, and the adventure begins!
We take it easy, getting to know the kayak. The guide and instructor will give you basic kayak training.
Like on all of our kayak trips, wildlife is abundant. You will see a lot of birds, and if we are lucky, we might see both seal and mink.
Close to land, under your kayak, you can explore the seabed. If you paddle very quietly, you might see some fish and crabs.
After all the paddling, we will serve you a nice outdoor lunch. Return to Stavanger will be at 5:45 PM and arrival back in Stavanger city center at 6 PM.What Wikipedia Says
