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.

Reasons why you should choose a guided kayak trip
The ultimate experience is perhaps to experience some of the most beautiful places along the long coast of Fjord Norway from a kayak. You will get a whole new perspective from seeing the scenery from the sea. You are so close to the water you can taste the salt and feel the sea breeze on your face. You can make your way through islets and skerries, where you can watch animals and birds up close.
Many are well versed in outdoor pursuits and are perfectly capable of travelling safely both on water and on land. Nonetheless, there are many reasons to choose a guided trip when you are going to visit or explore an area from a kayak.
