The Gulf stream gives good water temperatures and at this time of the year the water is really clear. This will give you the opportunity to see the sea life underneath you. The winter kayaking trip is definitely one of the most adventurous ways to explore Ålesund during this time of the year.
How does it work?
Meeting point at Uteguiden's activity centre at Notenesgata 3 in Ålesund, where you will get equipment and a safety briefing before the trip. All guides are kayak guides with great local knowledge. Stable tandem kayaks will be used to ensure a great experience. Don't worry about the temperature as your whole lower body will be warm down in the kayak and the upper part will be moving most of the time.
