About us

Norway’s #1 Kayak School

 

We work with passion and purpose.

We are passionate whitewater paddlers ourselves.

We are competing extreme athletes, experienced guides and qualified teachers.

We put having fun as our top priority.

We are whitewater professionals bringing a fresh new perspective to kayaking. 

Way back in 2010, Dag Sandvik and Julian Stocker had a brilliant idea. What better way to share their community and their love of kayaking than to start a kayak school? Kayak Voss was born. 

They soon realised that they needed some brains to balance their beauty, and Nicole Dubé joined the team. 

Recently Derek Murphy has joined the team to keep everyone in order, as well as helping to provide excellent tuition on the river. When you join a course or a tandem kayak trip, you may also meet one of our other world class instructors Nico, Jamie or Sven-Harald. Very different people from all over the world, but the one thing they have in common is a passion for the river and to give you an excellent day on the water.  

What you say about us

If you want to experience the rivers in Voss in a kayak for the first time, grunnkurs with Kayak Voss is perfect! The instructor Nicole challanges you according to your skill level, so you always feel safe. If you also go for the rolling course you get a steep learning curve and lots of fun!

Went on the half day tandem trip with my 10 year old son and guides Marco and Mike. Great experience. We started on a slow section to get comfortable with the boats, the river, and our teams. Quickly moved up river to more challenging water. My son couldn't have been happier. It was his first time kayaking whitewater, after previous trips sea kayaking and rafting whitewater. I advised Dag ahead of time, and he assured me that we would have the right guides and we would do the right water. Correct on both counts (though my son is somewhat fearless...). With my son's ok, Mike even flipped and rolled them in a still section of water. My son couldn't have been happier. A GREAT outing.

With hardly any kayak experiece I signed up for both grunnkurs hav & elv may/june 2014 together with friends. I have learned a lot and felt really safe during both courses. Julian and Dag are patient, calm, friendly, good teachers and have lots of knowledge. A great bonus is that it was so much fun:-)
