Fjord Norway is perfect for kayaking! With stunning coastal areas, fantastic fjords and some of the best rivers for river kayaking, the region offers adventures for padlers at all levels. Several operators offer rental kayaks and guided tours.
Wether you prefer paddling on calm and impressive fjords or gliding through the unique landscape and archipelago of the Norwegian coast, Fjord Norway has some of the best conditions in the world for kayaking.
It really strikes you when you are out there in the elements. Fjord Norway almost seems as though it was made for kayaking. This is where you will find those shallow, narrow channels and straits where other small boats are hestitant to cross - and a myriad of small islands, reefs and islets that makes navigation fun. The easy availability of key junctions on the west coast makes the area particularly well suited for weekend trips, short holidays or mini expeditions.
By the coast you will find interesting small island and islets that contribute to a feeling of a landscape that is changing for every stroke. In the fjord areas the massive formations and the many traces of a cultural landscape that strethes back thousands of years make a huge impression.
In the fjord areas you may join in on short kayaking tours lasting a couple of hours to bring you up close to the elements of nature. If you are going on longer trips on your own we suggest you prepare well and attend a course to learn survival techniques in case you should end up in the water.
