This overnight paddle and hiking tour is among our most unique tours and is for those who really want a varied adventure. The trip includes: sea kayaking, hiking, and tent camping in the Norwegian wilderness!
Upon arrival at our shop on Herdla, you will go through a trip orientation and safety meeting before packing for the tour. At the water’s edge we continue the safety discussion where we demonstrate and practice rescue techniques. Once completed, we will load the boats and get underway! On the water you will experience the tranquil beauty of the coastal fjords, while making progress towards the overnight destination. We may stop for breaks and snacks as required throughout the afternoon.
Upon arrival, we’ll unload the boats and hike to our overnight destination. Your guide will help you set up camp and begin preparing dinner. After dinner you can relax and take in the breathtaking views from the mountain over the fjord and the islands of the archipelago.
The following morning, your guide will arrange a healthy breakfast to prepare everyone for the return hike and paddling to follow.
Once back on Herdla, we’ll unload the boats and the guide will transfer all pictures taken during the trip and let you get on with your next adventure! Those guests who booked the transport add-on will be taken back to the city center.
