It is time for some clarity and realism. Unfortunately, the truth is difficult for most to accept.

We live in Western democracies where we elect individuals to govern. This international pandemic has clearly shown what we already know but do not want to fully admit; that we elect inept, unintelligent, and basically uneducated individuals. Now, this is not normally a problem but when the world really needs leadership these individuals fall far short of the mark. And, in Norway Erna Solberg and company are certainly not up to the job!

Our industry is not only suffering from this lack of leadership it is also suffering from the information that is coming from these so-called leaders.

Sea Kayaking Norway is a great trip for these challenging times!

Tourism companies are not banks, we are not in the business of accepting deposits just to give returns on them whenever requested. Our business is of a more complex nature where trip fees cover our entire existence and are not solely dedicated to your specific trip. You would never be able to afford to go on just a dedicated trip. We have real costs and expenses and for those few who operate on the same professional level as Kayak More Tomorrow where our experience and knowledge have come at a great expense over a multitude of years. This is what trip fees cover as well as having the industries highest standard of equipment available for you to use.

Unfortunately, there seems to be a misunderstanding out there that if you book a trip with an adventure operator and need to cancel for any reason you are owed your trip fees and this has recently been reinforced by the inept individuals that we have unfortunately elected to lead. Their complete lack of understanding of the realities of the tourism industry should be grounds for immediate dismissal.

However, since that is utopia it leaves me having to clarify the situation somewhat. Trip fees cover every aspect of our operations, period. Including: receiving a booking, an adventure tour operator has already incurred costs and expenses some of which will not ever be refunded, moreover, a portion of your trip fees has already been spent on taking your booking and providing you with your trip information package.

We do not go out and buy gear specifically for you to use and then if you choose to cancel we can forgo these costs. This is so fundamentally basic that I should not have to mention it; this lack of awareness always amazes me when someone asks what is our refund policy?

Therefore, and especially this year if you want to do an amazing trip in August don’t ask what the refund policy is, instead make sure that you have a good cancelation insurance policy ( there are literally hundreds of companies out there) and don’t be afraid to use it.

The future does not look so bright for the outdoor adventure industry right now but if you appreciate having and using high-quality adventure tour operators then it is time to book your August trip now.

To all those who have booked and are ready to go, we look forward to our adventures with you this August. And, to all the other Europeans who have wasted our time with incessant requests for refund policies money-back guarantees, please stop hassling our staff and just stay home!

The Nordland Sea Kayak Challenge

Pursuant to Kayak More Tomorrow’s leading role in the sea kayaking industry it is our obligation to challenge our product line and the industry as a whole. We bring to you Expedition Sea Kayaking, a trip that is designed for those who are looking for the next level in guided sea kayak trips.

Expedition Sea Kayaking will give you the opportunity to explore a coastline with an Expedition Leader, an accomplished professional sea kayaker who has logged thousands of sea kayaking miles exploring the world’s coastlines. KMT expedition leaders are intimately knowledgeable of Nordland’s coastline and its waterways.

An Expedition Sea Kayak Trip requires the right location with, challenging waterways, protected harbors, majestic vistas, and intriguing wildlife encounters. Kayak More Tomorrow’s sea kayak specialists after having explored a world of waterways have found that the Providence of Nordland in Norway’s Arctic is the perfect venue for a Sea Kayak Expedition Challenge.

North Norway’s Providence of Nordland is a seemingly endless island world with giant fjords, immense plains, and remote mountain borders. The landscape in Northern Norway is ceaselessly varied, unspoiled, magnificent, awe-inspiring and beautiful; the perfect backdrop for a month-long sea kayak expedition.

Nordland, Norway a sea kayaking eldorado, to the west lie the islands some only visible at low tide others tower more than a thousand meters above the sea. A long Helgeland’s coast there are thousands of tiny islands tens of kilometers from the shore whereas most are flat, but some rise up in strange mountain formations. The Lofoten Islands, dark violet, ancient craggy peaks rise like pyramids; these large islands lie like miniature continents with their mountains, forests and agricultural land, surrounded by the seaways of this awe-inspiring archipelago. Steeped in myths, sagas, fairy tales, and folklore Nordland’s many famous landmarks have contributed to these telling’s, Torghatten, Seven Sisters of Alsten, Hestmannen, Rødøyløve, Landego, Vestfjorden & Vågakallen are just a few that we will discover while paddling Nordland’s spectacular coast.

The Nordland Sea Kayak challenge begins at the southernmost end of the providence where we paddle North to the Northern border of the Troms, Providence in the Lofoten Islands. We meet in Brønnøysund, Nordland’s most southern city. Brønnøysund is a quaint coastal city that once was a major trading center on the sailing route from Bergen to the Lofoten Islands; it is here we do the final preparations of our sea kayak journey through Nordland.

The Nordland Challenge is unlike any other sea kayaking trip. There is no set route, planned stopping places or scheduled overnight campsites. This is a journey, a discovery in its truest sense with everyday unique and undetermined waiting to unfold as we navigate our way through numerous archipelagos, fjords & charming northern settlements

Your KMT expedition leader will lay out a general plan for the challenge with sectional breakdowns and daily objectives. You will discover hidden places and uncover the secrets of this ancient coastal culture. You will camp, stay in cabins, guesthouses, and rorbus and enjoy camp meals, picnics, and local specialty dishes prepared by the region’s best chefs as you paddle your way north.

This is an unprecedented trip in which bragging rights belong to those who paddle this journey; tales from the challenge will be the envy of the cocktail circuit.
