Basic course, seakayak

For groups, by request

Why should you join us for a basic sea-kayaking course? 

  • Perhaps because we practice onshore before we enter the sea? 
  • Perhaps because we have brand new equipment? 
  • Perhaps because you will have coffee and tea during the theory session? 
  • And definitely because we have outstanding surroundings!
  • And also because we have very satisfied participants! 
  • And most of all, because we have the best instructors!

A word of praise from one of our 2017 participants:  

"I attended this amazing beginner course in kayaking with Rogaland Aktiv in Stavanger. Rogaland Aktiv are professional, and this was my first time ever in a kayak. Such a great location for this course! I can highly recommend our amazing instructor Kjell Strand and the company Rogaland Aktiv. The best is that I now feel confident enough to start doing kayaking with friends - I would not have done that without this course"

As the only operator in the region we offer a two-day, full days, kayak course with food and accommodation. You can spend the night in a tent or in a green house!!
