gokayaking.no (Padleopplevelser=paddlingadventures) was started in 2007 and wants to share the joy with your about paddling, with as many as possible. There is a growing interest for sea kayaking and nature in general, and with our location in the beautiful coastal area around Nøtterøy / Tjøme we believe there is an interest in bringing the joys of experiencing nature from a kayak out to a larger audience.
This is the ambition behind all our events, tours and courses. Safety and respect for nature is a priority and gokayaking.no offer courses in the Wetcard series from the Norwegian Paddle Association. We also organize courses in special techniques as the eskimo roll and courses for groups with special needs.
