Valley Nordkapp RM

Probably the most famous sea kayak design ever.

 The current Nordkapp is an evolution of the design used for the original Cape Horn and Nordkapp expeditions of the 1970’s. Indeed the original prototype was produced with the needs of the Nordkapp expedition in mind, hence the name!

Valley Nordkapp RM


The Valley Nordkapp RM is the latest edition of one of the most influential sea kayaks ever produced. The Nordkapp was originally designed in 1975 for expedition of the Norwegian coast, to the northern most points of Scandinavia; these expeditions marked the beginning of modern sea kayak.

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

The Nordkapp RM retains all the features of the composite model (Nordkapp Forit) but has been built in an advanced triple-layer polyethylene construction.


The Nordkapp RM is a true expedition sea kayak available in a tough and durable roto moulded construction that is ideally suited to a wide range of paddlers and environments.
