Includes paddling equipment rental - kayak, paddle, life vest, sprayskirt, wetsuit, waterproof jacket and booties. We recommend you wear a woollen base layer (under-tøy), wool socks, bring shoes you don’t mind getting wet, and a towel.
You will receive your NPF Våttkort – Level 1 and 2 – a nationally recognised kayaking qualification allowing you to rent kayaks individually, or with friends. Mad Goats has several kayak rental (kajakk utleie) locations along the Oslo waterfront: Bjørvika, Tjuvholmen, and Lysaker / Sollerudstranda.
After completing this våttkort kayak course, you can rent a kayak alone or bring your friends and family out kayaking with you - only one person in the group needs their våttkort. Oslo Fjord has many beautiful islands to explore, stop for a swim, picnic, or even to camp on - the freedom of adventure awaits you!
We also offer this våttkort kayak course as a weekend adventure including camping overnight on an island in Oslo Fjord, telling tales around a fire and making new friends! Learn how to pack a kayak, camp-craft, and cooking. This course is run from our base in Lysaker / Sollerudstranda and we camp on an island in Sandvika, just outside Oslo.
