Curious about the wilderness and the life of the beaver? Treat yourself to an unforgettable and exotic Beaver safari on a stand up paddle board. Enjoy the experience standing or sitting on the board. The trip lasts about 3 hours, and takes place on Vestfosselva. Start/end point at Eiker padelklubb, Loesmoen. Price per person.

The beaver is incredibly wary of sound. When we are on a paddling trip to see beavers, it is therefore extra important to have silence and calmness in the paddling group. We paddle in small groups of a maximum of 4 SUP boards. The best time to see beavers is in the afternoon/evening. The paddling trips therefore usually start at 6-7pm, summer time, depending on when darkness comes. In winter/early spring, the trip can start at 3 pm.

The beaver hears well, and sees poorly. We must therefore be extra careful and make as little noise as possible. A little splash with the oar, and we scare the beaver away. There are several beavers living upriver, so the possibility of seeing several of these is great. We paddle up the river, watch the time and turn around in time for beaver experiences and the sunlight.

ATTENTION! In summer, there can be a lot of mosquitoes in the area where we prepare paddle boards and paddle out. If you are bothered by mosquitoes, it may therefore be a good idea to use mosquito spray or a mosquito hat, possibly also a thin long-sleeved jumper or trousers. You can take this off and put it in a dry bag when you get out on the water.

Welcome!

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. What should I wear? Dress like you're going for a workout or jog. Dress according to the weather. Is it winter or spring/autumn? Use a dry suit or a wet suit. We have something to lend. Contact us for the desired size. If it's summer and sunny, wear shorts and a t-shirt. If the weather is cooler, wear training tights and long-sleeved sweaters. A light windbreaker can also be advisable in some cases.

2. Can I borrow a wet suit or a dry suit? We have some wetsuits for loan if desired. Feel free to send us a request for the current size. Use e-mail: i nfo@sea-breeze.no

3. Will I get wet/fall into the water? There is always a risk of falling into the water, so bring a towel and a change of clothes. We have waterproof bags for storing a change of clothes on board. We generally find that very few people fall into the water, as our boards are very stable.

4. Can I bring my mobile? Yes, you can bring a mobile phone. We have some waterproof mobile cases for loan, if desired. It is SUPER fine to take pictures during a paddling trip. However, you take valuables with you at your own risk.

5..How stable are the SUP boards that are used? The boards we use are very stable and are very suitable for beginners. Length 320cm and 350cm.

5. Do I have to use a life jacket? Yes, you must use a life jacket at all our events. This is to ensure that safety is as good as possible. The instructor has approved the "Life saving in water course", but it is still safe if everyone uses a vest.

6. Is there free parking at Eiker padelklubb? Yes, there is free parking. There are always free parking spaces in the immediate vicinity. (02.02.24. There is construction work in the area, so currently limited access to the river. This will improve when spring comes and we start paddling on the river again.)

7. What is the age limit for participating in a guided paddle trip via SeaBreeze? If you book a private guided paddling trip, we have no lower age limit. We still recommend that the smallest children sit with the adults on the boards. We have a board that is intended for paddling by children/young people. This can be used when the whole family wants to paddle on their own SUP board.

8. What size of SUP board is used for the paddling trips? Our boards are normally 320cm and 350cm long. There is plenty of room to sit in the front for one person.

9. What requirements do you have for previous paddling experience? With us, you are most welcome even if you have never paddled a stand up paddle board before. We have no requirements for previous experience, but it is an advantage if you have tried a little before. If you are new to the SUP board, we provide the necessary instructions and help you get started. If you have paddled a lot SUP in the past, you will also find the paddling trips rewarding and exciting.

10. Who is responsible if an accident occurs on the paddling trip? We take safety seriously. Instructor has approved "Life saving in water course". Safety procedures are reviewed before each paddling trip. After all, it is still you as a tour participant who is the responsible party for your own safety. We therefore recommend that everyone have insurance (life or travel insurance) in order, use a life jacket and a leash (safety line attached to the board).

11. Is there a toilet nearby that I can use before the paddling trip? Unfortunately. There is no toilet in the immediate vicinity. The nearest toilet can be found at a petrol station in the center of Hokksund. About 2-4 minutes' drive away.

12. Is it possible to buy food before/after the paddling trip? The nearest shop is in the center of Hokksund, approx. 2-4 minutes away by car.
