Founder & CEO

Rasmus Damgaard Jensen have been working and teaching in the outdoor industry for nearly ten years. He’s been sea kayaking since 2013 and is a certified DKF3 Instructor in Denmark and Turleder (4-star) in Norway. Rasmus has been guiding and teaching courses in Denmark, Sweden, Norway and England. From 2015 to 2018 he studied to be a “Friluftsveileder” (Outdoor Leader) at the University of Southeast-Norway, which marks his courses and guided tours with an educational and curious approach to nature.

Rasmus founded Nordic Paddling in 2019, with the vision to make memorable multi-day kayaking experiences available to anyone at any experience level.

To me, kayaking is like a stew. Kayaking itself may be the vegetables and meat to the stew, but an understanding of the coastal-culture, history and foraging from nature are the seasoning to the stew – otherwise, it would just be flavourless.
