In Flåm we hire out both double and single kayaks.
We expect all renters to adhere to the seven principles of the Leave No Trace Centre for Outdoors Etichs (read the seven principles here).
We only hire out single kayaks to kayakers with certified rescue skills (NPF, BCU, ACA, EPP or other recognized National Kayaking Association). Please be aware that we do not rent out single kayaks to solo paddlers. Solo travellers are welcome to join our guided tours.
Double kayaks are more stabile and more suitable for less experienced paddlers. We do not demand a formal qualification for renting a double kayak. All rentals of doubles include a safety skills instruction that will be given on land.
We strongly recommend that all people renting doubles take part in an on sea safety and rescue course. We can present you with a 5 hour safety & rescue course. Upon completing this course you will aquire the internationally recognised Våttkort qualification from the Norwegian Canoe Association (NPF), minimum 2 persons on the course. All renters should read our leaflet Kayak rental and safety.
All rentals needs to be prebooked by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: 0047 91 32 66 28. All bookings must be prepaid.
All rentals includes kayak, paddle, paddle vest (pfd) , wetsuit, booties/shoes, paddle jackets, paddle float, sprayskirt and a small map of the area.
