From us you can paddle in many directions, but we recommend paddling towards Olden or Loen with a view to the spectacular mountain Skåla. If you are experienced or paddle with our guide, you may paddle towards Stryn, and up the river (depending on the sea level) Most guests paddle for three to four hours. Bring water and food. Enjoy!
On the photo you see the kayaks in the shadow. It will be 2-3 meters to carry them and you are ready to go.
License not needed - Kayak rental Olden
You don’t need a licence to kayak here. Many places you need a kayak certificate to rent a kayak. That makes sense if the waves are big, or there are boats and ships passing by. Or far from land. In 2020 we have no cruise ships here and hardly any boats. If you have a licence you can paddle anywhere. If you don’t have a licence stay close to land (5 to 40 meters from shore) for extra safety. You must be sober. And you must wear a flotation device (which is always included). If you are unsure about kayaking, a guided tour is a good alternative.
We are a 5 minute drive from Olden center. We will send you address and directions instantly after booking.
Yes, we have free private parking for you.
Opening hours for kayak rental Olden: From 7 to 22 (7 AM to 10 PM)
If you have a Norwegian mobile number, you can pay with Vipps. If not you can pay in cash. We accept Norwegian and Danish Kroner, Euro, British Pounds and American Dollars. There is an ATM in Olden, by Bunnpris, the yellow grocery store. A last option is PayPal.
Yes, kids older than 5 will normally enjoy kayaking. For kids 5 years old and up to 10/11-years it’s normally best with a double kayak. Let the kid sit in the front seat. The double kayak works fine, even if the kid stops paddling. I have often kayaked for hours, without any help from the kid in the front, he was just relaxing. Kids older than 10 will often handle one of the single kayaks.
We have four single kayaks and three double kayaks. See pictures at the bottom of this page.
All double kayaks and 3 of 4 single kayaks have a rodder. Disclaimer: Some rodders might be out of function some days each season (remember to take up the rodder when you make landfall). An interesting thing is that the main purpose of the rodder is not to turn, believe it or not. The main purpose is to help the kayak going straight in strong sidewind or currents (we have no currents, and rearly strong wind). Personally, I never use the rodder here unless the sidewind is very strong.
Only if you have kayak certificate and experience, because it’s safer without. We have 2 spray skirts.
Yes. We have many vests, from 15 kilos up to 90+. Vest, paddle and map are always included.
Swim shoes are included so you can enter and exit (on a beach, for example), without getting your holiday shoes wet.
In the waterproof room in the kayaks, or inside your car or in our house. Drybag is not necessary, since the kayaks have waterproof rooms.
Yes, it’s nice to hike along the shore. It’s also possible to sit on the pier to relax or read (no Bollywood music, and no littering)
The bathroom is not available during the virus. Visit a bathroom at a gas station or similar, before you arrive.
