Kayaking in the Wild
Guest Post Written By Tom from Kayak Critic
Peace, relax and quiet is something we, as humankind, have been missing for quite some time now. I have always found this world a place of balance, where our hectic routine and machines made it hard for us to relax; it has also given us so many new activities for keeping us calm. Out of every way to make our lives better while engaging you in some activity, if you ask me to what to do, I will refer the ocean for sure and out of so much to do while at the ocean, kayaking is my favourite sport for so many reasons. But first, let me list down that on where on earth can you kayak for making it the best experience of your life.
There are some places where you can kayak and it would be beautiful. But the following destinations are my favourites...
Vancouver Island, Canada
Off the coast of Canada, a part of British Columbia, this island is a scene you do not want to forget. With beautiful marine life, isolated beaches and rainforest, this place is known to be a haven for kayakers
Glacier Bay, Alaska, USA
People who are fond of doing kayaking and camping together can plan their kayaking trip to this destination, and they would never regret.
Fiordland, New Zealand
With the beauty of New Zealand all around, this place is considered to be on the wish list of every paddler.
Sermilik Fjord, Greenland
With the sight of glaciers, kayaking here can be an experience of a lifetime. And if you are there after the mid-August the sight of northern lights will drop your jaw in amazement.
Mountains up to 1000 meters tall and ice all around, Svalbard is an ideal location to be explored on a kayak. Well, of course, the bergs will give you a little hard time but what is an adventure without challenges?
Many of you may know about the effects of an adventure of kayaking can do to you mentally, but kayaking is a hobby that could help to keep your body in shape and healthy. It helps you lose weight, tones up your muscles, and improves your heart and mental condition. An average of 500 strokes is made while paddling a kayak which helps you lose weight faster than your treadmill at your gym. Also, researchers claim that taking your workouts to the sea helps you burn calories faster because you do not get fatigued easily when you are around water.
So, everyone out there, keep KAYAKING!
