The glistening waterways surrounding Ålesund entice and adventure beckons! KMT’s Island-Hopping extravaganza paddle to Ona Lighthouse.
A Sea kayakers Paradise, with rock gardens, white sandy beaches, playful seals, kelp forests, surging tides, soaring sea eagles, historical lighthouses, funky currents, cracking campfires, and cozy tents.
The coastal waters of western Norway boast some of the best sea kayaking on the planet. Here outer islands break the surge North Atlantic before it descends long deep fjords winding through granite spires rising like giant monoliths from the foaming sea. This setting with savvy leaders and fail-safe gear await you on our Ona Light Paddle Mania. This trip is suited for paddlers as it takes you out beyond the shelter of the fjords where we navigate intricate archipelagos, play in rock gardens and spend a few long days rocking and rolling with the swells of the North Atlantic.
Slip into sea kayaks and join the vibrant city life along Ålesund’s historical ‘main street, your senses come alive with the buzz, aromas and the pastel colors of the art nouveau facades adorning the city's main artery. Exiting the sound, a unique string of islands run North forming a natural barrier that slows the rushing waters of the Northern Atlantic; with the sun at our backs we aim our kayaks North paddling over open crossings with wacky currents and exhilarating tidal races. Our kayaks glide around outer islands laid out like a string of pearls; dotted with abandoned farms, quaint villages and signaling beacons that shine on treacherous shorelines where ocean swells roll up on pebble speckled white sandy beaches.
Home to eccentric islanders and wild woolly sheep these weather-beaten islands lead us to the remotest marker, Ona Light. Navigating rocky islands and shoals when finally, the ‘rising of the light’ and the first glimpse of Ona Light. Feeling like ancient mariners our paddles blaze a path to our destination, this famous lighthouse.
A beach front campsite where a delicious supper of local delicacies prepared with natural ingredients is served in the great outdoors. A cracking fire, good company and warming night-cap, rounds off the evening before retiring to a cozy tent for a well-deserved rest.
Kayak More Tomorrow's sea kayak specialists were the first to design and operate commercial sea kayak trips along Norway's fjord indented coastline; no-one knows these waterways better than us, as KMT is without a doubt the sea kayak tour company with the most guiding days on the fjords.
In 2018 we have weekly departures during July and August on our Islands & Lights trip.
