Unique Accommodation

Your home for the duration of your Stand up paddle boarding adventure will be aboard our beautifully restored naval vessel Gassten, one of the last wooden Swedish Navy ships ever built.

Converted to a very high standard, the Gassten sleeps 10 in a combination of double and twin berths, all of which served as the original officers’ quarters.

There can be no better way to experience Norway’s stunning coastline, than aboard this unique and elegantly converted wooden naval ship. Come aboard our cruises for a truly superb adventure.
