We give safety the highest priority when I do activities in Kajakk.fo & Tour.fo. You must be 100% safe by going on the water with Kajakk.fo & Tour.fo.

Before we put the kayak in the water, I therefore do a safety briefing with the participants. And if we are going on a trip, I prepare a sailing plan for the course / trip you are going on – no matter how short or long the trip may be.
