What you'll do

Spend your day paddling beside majestic mountains, watching sea birds and marine wildlife and taking in breathless sea vistas like no where else in the world! We will meet at our private boathouse to explain the kayak trip and look at the map to familiarize yourself with the area and provide some information about specific sights and locations to visit. Next we will get outfitted to go kayaking. So I will provide a sprayskirt, lifejacket, paddle and safety equipment, and a single kayak for you to use. We will then load into the kayaks from the floating dock and begin our journey. We will paddle for about 2 to 3 hours in Andopen Bay and the surrounding area. This area has very little boat traffic and we only usually see the occasional fishing boat. We will provide local information about flora and fauna and history about the areas we will be in. Towards the end of our time we will kayak back to starting point. We then exit from the kayaks onto the dock and take off the kayak gear and share memories and photos of the experience!

I'm a ACA certified sea kayak guide, and have worked professionally as a sea kayak guide and instructor for over 20 years. I have led trips and worked in Washington state, Alaska, Lofoten Norway, Canadian Arctic, Northern Patagonia in Chile, and Antarctica. I have completed trips with guests that have been up to 10 days long in the wilderness of Alaska unsupported. I truly enjoy sharing kayaking with others.

It was a great and unique experience. We loved our kayaking trip with Erhen and Anna who gave us great tips and explanations on how to paddle and use the kayak (simple but important in this cold water). Anna told us very interesting facts about the landscape and culture surrounding us! The equipment itself was absolutly top notched and we have borrowed them some gear because we were under equipped... And they also organise skiing and snowshoes hikes so we came back the next day to enjoy the region in a different way! They also had good advice to give us on what to visit and where to eat. Bottom line is we absolutly loved it as it was the highlight of our week in Lofoten. Thank you so much again guys! Marieke, Thibault, Erick and Amelie

It was an awesome experience! At first I thought, Whoa so many things I need to remember, but after a while things just came naturally. I felt safe and welcome all the time. Thanks again for this wonderful adventure!

Ehren knows his stuff! This kayaking adventure was a highlight for our stay in the Lofoten islands. Seeing the mountains from the road is one thing, but seeing them from the water is a completely new and unreal experience. Ehren really connected with us and was incredibly knowledgable about all the wildlife and history on the islands. There was a point where the tides got a little strong, but thanks to his expertise, we were able to paddle back to calm waters, so we felt safe and confident the entire time. Highly recommend!
