This summer’s kayaking events

Summer is here and kayaking season is ON!

Apart from renting kayaks and going on your own trip there are lots of fun events of different kinds going on this summer

All through the summer we have kayaking together with Friluftsfrämjandet three times a week, both with short courses and possibility for more experienced kayakers to get out on the water with others in and around our beautiful city,  you can find out more about this here.

We also plan on having longer courses this summer, the first one which will focus on safety is on 11-12/6 where we will spend time both in the pool and out in the sea, you can find out more about this course here. There you can also find information about the other two courses we will be holding this summer, 15-17/7 and 12-14/8. 

We also have our Church Paddle day which is one of the best kayaking events during the summer – you find more information about that one here , this year it will take place on the 30th of July. 

If you are thinking about buying a kayak, or just want to talk a little about this summer’s events, or kayaking in general, Svima will come to Mellanholmen saturday the 4th of June, bringing some of their kayaks with them for people to try.

If you want more information about any event, feel free to send an email to paddla@highcoastexperience.com

Hope to see you this summer!

“The church paddle day”

To see some pictures from earlier Church paddles, go to here.

In short, it’s an old tradition, that has been running from the 70′s, and now taken up again from 2010. We arrange it together with/under the flag of  Friluftsfrämjandet Härnösands Kajaksektion together with some other local actors. Usually, we are from 30 – 50 kayaks, sometimes a Canadian canoe or a Klepper joins in.
We welcome also foreign tourists to participate, provided you have some previous kayaking experience – enough to take you through one days kayaking, in total around 23 km:s. There are two passages over land, as the stretch is over one lake, land passage, over Gaviksfjärden Bay of the sea, land passage, and then again a part over a lake, Lake Vågsfjärden in Nordingrå. Participants must be able to swim, at least 200 m. Wearing a personal flotation device/buoyancy aid is mandatory at all times on the water. It is not a competition, except for the last stretch, the shortest, and final. Apart from that, we stay together – it’s more a “cocktail party” on water. Especially on the part over the sea bay there may sometimes be waves, and for everyones safety you must be disciplined and stay between the leading kayak and the end leader.
Pre-booking is mandatory – if you are interested simply contact us. Kayak can be your own, or be rented from us.
There is a small fee, 150 – 200 SEK/person.

Next one will be preliminarily on Saturday on the 30th July 2016.

Welcome to join us!
