Get your NPF våttkort on our Introduction course - Bjørvika

First time with a paddle in your hands? Discover the joys of sea kayaking on our beginner-level introduction course.
Here you will learn the basics in a safe and controlled environment. All gear is included so as to keep you warm while paddling. “A warm student is a happy student. And a happy student is a good learner” – goat wisdom.

During the course, our certified and professional (and very funny) instructors will teach you about safety on the water, proper paddling technique and how to rescue yourself and others.

After completing this course you will be awarded your very own NPF våttkort. This nationally recognised qualification will allow you to rent kayaks from us so that you can paddle alone or with friends. The freedom of adventures awaits you!
