We first travel by bus to Henningsvær where your expert guide awaits you. There, you’ll be provided with all the necessary equipment and instructions for your two-hour kayaking tour. The trip will be tailored to suit the needs of the group, including those who have never kayaked before.   

Aboard your stable tandem kayak, you’ll head through the harbour of Henningsvær, pass rorbu cabins, and authentic fishing boats. As you navigate the calm waters surrounded by the towering mountains of Henningsvær, your guide will share stories about this stunning area’s history, culture, and wildlife. 

You’ll then have over an hour to explore Henningsvær on foot, perhaps returning to places you saw earlier on your kayaking trip to see the view from a different perspective.  

A popular attraction is the local football stadium, situated dramatically at the end of a narrow peninsula. It’s probably the most famous and most photographed football stadium in Norway.
