Activities in water
Residing with the Loppa Sea as our neighbour in the north provide a range of water-based activities, too. Arctic Nuvsvåg is located close to the main beach, which is great for bathing and an excellent starting point for SUP-boarding, kayaking or canoeing. When the conditions are right the beach also offer a great area for windsurfing or kiting all year round. If you feel the need for speed we recommend water skiing – our boats are suited for fun! In our neighbouring fjord to the west, Ullsfjord, you can walk around in the remains of a great coastal fort operated during WW2. In the surrounding areas there is great hiking terrain that suits everybody.
