In the late 1990’s one of the world’s leading sea kayak professionals discovered Norway’s spectacular fjord indented coast; after exploring Norway’s entire coastline in a sea kayak, he then proceeded to design the first commercial sea kayak trips in Norway. Trips were designed in, the Lofoten Islands and the Western Fjords. Why? Because after paddling the entire coastline these areas were deemed to be, “Norway’s most spectacular sea kayaking areas”.
All our trips are designed solely by our own sea kayak specialists. Providing trips of the highest quality is our priority; that is why we design and operate all of our trips! The trips wouldn’t be as good – we’re sure of it – and that’s what matters!
The first ever commercial sea kayak trips in Norway, 1998 – The Lofoten Islands
Inarguably Norway’s best sea kayaking venue. KMT has explored this islands chain in-depth and after guiding trips here for over 20 years, we know every rock, shoal, and tucked away beach throughout these majestic islands. Paddle the Lofoten Islands with peace of mind that you have chosen the company with the most experience guiding throughout these majestic islands. KMT’s inspiring sea kayak trips and courses were forged in a pioneering spirit and delivered with a North American quality of service, attention to detail, and an outstanding safety record. They feature postcard-perfect landscapes, snowcapped mountains, high granite walls, waterfalls, mountain ledge farms, wildflowers, crystal clear seas, rocky coves, pine tree fringed beaches and ancient ruins amidst vibrant charming villages.
KMT brought commercial sea kayaking to Norway’s Western Fjords, 2001 – Geiranger Fjord
In 2001 KMT opened a sea kayak center in the center of the village of Geiranger, right on the edge of the fjord; from here we introduced people from all over the world to sea kayaking and paddling adventures on the world’s most photographed fjord. Sea Kayaking is the best way to experience Geiranger Fjord on a close and personal level. Paddle the jade green waters of Geiranger fjord and admire the thundering waterfalls and mountain ledge farms; discover Geiranger’s hidden gems and immerse yourself in the history and culture of this spectacular fjord with KMT.
