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.
Andreas has been kayaking since 2014, where he first got an introduction to sea kayaking as a part of a 3-month Outdoor Leadership course at Strathcona Park Lodge, Vancouver, Canada. He later completed a 2-year education in Outdoor Leadership from the University of Southeast Norway and has a 3-year bachelor’s degree in Social Education from VIA University College, Denmark.
Andreas is a certified DKF1 Instructor in Denmark and Aktivitetsleder (3-star) in Norway. He’s been working in the outdoor industry with various groups for 7 years and has been guiding in Norway, Ireland, Denmark, and Canada.
He takes a special interest in the effects of natures healing power, and how it affects the mental health and the relations between people.
