From Støtt, you can paddle in the beautiful and sheltered archipelago of Støttvær or indulge in the thrill of surfing waves and breakers along the open coast. Join a course, embark on a guided tour, or rent a kayak of your own.

While the Helgeland Coast offers many wonderful locations, what makes Støtt truly unique and ideal for paddling?

For many, it’s the combination of magnificent natural experiences and fantastic kayaking routes suitable for all skill levels. Støtt offers all of this and more.

The old fishing village is surrounded by a myriad of islets and skerries, inviting you to paddle in tranquility, accompanied only by the sounds of birdsong and lapping waves. Støtt’s sheltered harbor provides respite from weather and winds. You can paddle in shallow waters or embark on serene adventures closer to shore, and you don’t need prior kayaking experience to join a guided tour. The guide will tailor the trip according to your skill level, preferences, weather, and the season.

If you’re an experienced paddler, you can challenge yourself by surfing waves and exploring the sea. With the Vestfjorden as your neighbor, you have easy access to both beautiful and exhilarating ocean areas. Here, you can test your limits in the open sea, savor the life of an adventurer, and yet enjoy comfortable and pleasant accommodations on Støtt, amidst the stunning coastal landscape of northern Helgeland.
