The courses are held by highly skilled instructors and training is based on our core philosophy, where good guidance provides a solid foundation for developing your skills to be the most self-reliant, free-spirited and talented paddler you can be.
Our courses are of 15 to 16 hours over 2 days. We start with 2.5 hours’ theory, in our classrooms at the “Arbeideren”, the community house in Kabelvåg. Then we drive to the Lofoten active base, for adapting equipment before getting on the water at Ørsvågvær Camping.
We meet at 0900 by Arbeideren at the market square in Kabelvåg. Entrance is on opposite as the Coop Extra shop. After the theory lesson, we drive to our base in Rødmyrveien 24, fitting dry suit and neoprene shoes & gloves, life jacket and spray skirt.
