Valley Nordkapp RM

The Valley Nordkapp RM can trace its heritage back to the eariest of modern sea kayak expeditions, it is a time tested classic design with all of the features of the composite design along with the toughness and durability of high quality PE construction. This is an expedition ready boat with the carrying capacity needed for multi-day adventures anywhere from polar oceans to equatorial lattitudes. It has the lines and length to take on wild conditions while still being a joy to paddle on glassy calm days. It surfs following seas very well and feels responsive and predictable in tidal waves and races. With the skeg deployed it locks in to the line you want to paddle with very little weathercocking even in stormy winds.

The hull responds predictably to edging and has a moderate rocker towards the stern making this relatively manoeuvrable for a long boat while the lines through the centre section ensure very good tracking and speed. The upswept bow line provides good lift through oncoming chop and over swells and does a great job of diverting spray.

Two large hatches make loading gear easy and a smaller hatch just behind the cockpit is handy for storing gear you might need while on the water. The Nordkapp is a great choice for paddlers who like to take on lively seas and feel secure on offshore paddles in changeable conditions. The advantage of the RM construction over composite is that you can take this boat rockhopping and be confident landing on rocky foreshores.

We offer a delivery service for the Valley Nordkapp RM throughout the UK & Ireland to home and work addresses.


Delivery times are estimates based on years of experience; we do not offer a guaranteed timed delivery service. Our overnight service works well for the core more densely populated areas of the UK for Clothing and Equipment orders. However more remote less densely populated areas will not be covered by a next day service.


Delivery of canoes and kayaks is classed as “ugly freight” because mechanical handling and automatic parcel processing cannot be used; therefore a delivery time of 3-5 working days is more realistic. For remote location that delivery time will be dependent on the local courier’s ability to onward ship the goods. Not all areas of the UK are serviced by vehicles that can handle canoes and kayaks. Online orders can be tracked online using the courier’s website – tracking details will be provided. We make every effort to deliver goods within the estimated time scales


The delivery price will be shown in the shopping basket.
