Valley Nordkapp Forti


The Valley Nordkapp Førti (Norwegian for forty) is the latest edition of one of the most influential sea kayaks ever produced. The Nordkapp was original designed in 1975 for expedition of the Norwegian coast, to the northern most points of Scandinavia; these expeditions marked the beginning of modern sea kayaking.

The Nordkapp Forti’s hull design is closely matched to the 1975 original and features a long waterline with a sharp v-shaped hull offering a fast and manoeuvrable paddle in flat conditions, whilst the high bow rocker offers a lively ride with exceptional handling in rough water. 

The Nordkapp Forti is fitted out with everything you would expect to see from a top end expedition sea kayak including a central storage hatch in front of the cockpit and plenty of other storage in the 2 large oval hatches and a round day hatch. The Nordkapp Forti has wire operated drop down skeg of which will help with directional stability in windy conditions.

The Nordkapp Forti is a true expedition sea kayak that is suited to a wide range of paddlers and environments, but in the hands of a paddle with some experience is unstoppable!

We offer a delivery service for the Valley Nordkapp Forti 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.
