I can’t imagine a better way to spend the summer; exploring new places, meeting new people and having the freedom of being on expedition."


On June 29th Ashley Williams will begin her Norway sea kayak adventure, starting from Bergen on the west coast of Norway, paddling north towards Nordkapp. She will spend 2 months exploring and camping along the spectacular coastline of Norway.

During the trip Ashley plans to contact local clubs to join her on the water and to learn more about the local myths and legends of the sea. Many villages are remote, and in the olden days the highway was the sea. Connections by road might be long, but are just a short crossing by kayak. Ashley will undertake trips that locals would have done by rowing boats.

The trip will not only physically challenging but mentally challenging as well. There will be long stretches of remoteness; being miles away from supplies and people. With ever changing conditions of wind, rain and sea state along with Norwegian summer temperatures as she travels further north.

Her goal is to have an enjoyable trip; experiencing wilderness and nature, meeting locals and learning about the coastline. Ashley enjoys sharing her passion for kayaking and hopes to provide encouragement and inspire others to try the sport.
