You may say that Bendiksen is biased, as he runs a highly successful outdoors centre in central Ålesund, but the Canadaborn Kayak More Tomorrow founder has an incredible background in kayaking and definitely knows what he is talking about. “When I first travelled to Norway, I set up a kayaking centre in the Lofoten Islands, and later by the Geirangerfjord, but they were nowhere near as highly visited as our outdoors centre in Ålesund,” he says. Now based in beautiful Ålesund in the northern part of western Norway, he specialises in tailored outdoors adventures on the famous Bridge Sound and the ocean as well as kayaking holidays on famous fjords, beautiful coastlines and the Lofoten Islands.
