Highlights

The Nordland Sea Kayak challenge begins at the southern most end of the providence where we paddle North to the Northern boarder of the Troms, Providence in the Lofoten Islands. We meet in Brønnøysund, Nordland’s most southern city. Brønnøysund is a quaint coastal city that once was a major trading center on the sailing route from Bergen to the Lofoten Islands; it is here we do our final preparations of our sea kayak journey through Nordland.

The Nordland Challenge is unlike any other sea kayaking trip.  There is no set route, planned stopping places or scheduled overnight campsites. This is a journey, a discovery in its truest sense with everyday unique and undetermined waiting to unfold as we navigate our way through numerous archipelagos, fjords & charming northern settlements

Your KMT expedition leader will lay out a general plan for the challenge with sectional breakdowns and daily objectives. You will discover hidden places and uncover secrets of this ancient coastal culture. You will camp, stay in cabins, guesthouses, and rorbus and enjoy camp meals, picnics, and local speciality dishes prepared by the regions best chefs as you paddle your way north.
 
This is an unprecedented trip in which bragging rights belong to those who paddle this journey; tales from the challenge will be the envy of the cocktail circuit.
