COVID-19 STATEMENT: Like most tour operators & kayak schools, we have been heavily affected by the current global pandemic and the resulting restrictions on movement.

In line with the advice and plans of the Norwegian Government, we have started operations in June, in the Sjoa area. Predominantly these clinics and courses on a coaching only product, initially aimed at the Nordic market whom had some degree have travel freedom across the Nordic region since mid June 2020. More recently certain areas of Sweden can also now travel to Norway, see our Norway Short Course programme. Since 15th July 2020, Norway started inbound tourism from selected countries, predominantly those from  EU, EEA and other Schengen countries in Europe. Norway is now open to many of these nations, and have a full trip programme in Sjoa for late summer. Note further countries are expected to be granted inbound access to Norway from mid August 2020.

From late summer into the autumn, we are running trips and courses in Slovenia, with new dates now online for September 2020. Also our complete programme of autumn courses and clinics in Devon, UK are now online too...

We of course wish you well, and hope to see you in an eddy soon, until then stay safe and the best of luck.  7th August 2020
