NPF Våttkort Intermediate Course

Take your kayaking skills to the next level on this paddling weekend adventure in Færder National Park!

Throughout this two-day course, you will learn how to manoeuvre the kayak in medium-sized swell and windy conditions. This course features rock-hopping, surfing, intermediate rescues, difficult landings and basic camp craft.

This is not only a course; it is also a two-day kayaking adventure where we will all be camping, telling tales around a fire and making new friends!
