About Rogaland Aktiv
Your first choice for outdoor activities in Rogaland

Rogaland Aktiv was founded by Kjell Strand in the autumn of 2015. Our first full season was 2016. We offer unique outdoor activities in and around Rogaland, which lies on the southwestern coast of Norway. Our main activities are kayaking, biking and skiing, but we can also offer private guided tours, kiting (summer and winter) just to mention some other activities. 

We offer courses that have a focus on the theoretical, as well as the practical aspects of each activity. In addition, all trips include knowledgeable and personable guides, who will make your experiences memorable.  Tours can be tailor made based on the groups participating. Don't hesitate ask us !

MARIT K. NILSEN

VEILEDER (SUPERVISOR) HSE KAYAK

Marit is a complete kayaker. That´s it. Ask her how many kayaks she has, I don`t think she knows.

Kayaking with Marit is an adventure. She has a very strong focus on safety, and don`t take any chances.  She gives you the feeling of beeing seen and taken good care of in any situations and weather conditions during kayaking. She also has excellent teaching skills. So if you have any questions ask her ! What she doesn´t know about kayaking is not worth knowing. Marit is our HSE advisor in kayak.

I´ll say no more !
