One of Norway's outermost archipelagos

Powerful nature

An experience of a lifetime

5.-9. July

Sanna is, in our eyes, Europe's most beautiful paddling paradise. Hundreds of islands, the mighty ocean and majestic mountains create a fantastic setting for the paddling experience.


During the festival, we paddle around the clock with various courses, morning trips, day trips and midnight sun trips Tuesday to Sunday. Over the course of six days, we deliver a varied program of trips to suit all wishes and needs. This year, half of the activities are run from the festival island Husøya. Therefore, see in the price list which trip and starting point is right for you.

Paddling equipment and a dry suit are included in all trips and courses. The right equipment on these trips is important so that everyone can feel safe, regardless of experience and prior knowledge. The groups are small and led by knowledgeable guidesk that you get a safe paddling experience.
