SEA KAYAK – Sognefjord – Guided tour

A TRULY FANTASTIC DAY OUT!

Sea kayaking in Sognefjord is the perfect way to explore and enjoy the sights of Norways largest Fjord. Extending over 200km in length and with waters over 4000ft deep it is the second longest Fjord in the world. It is one of Norways most rugged, wild and iconic Fjords and is situated at the base of the majestic mountains of Jotunheimen National Park.

This trip will take you on a 100km journey through the incredible mountains of Vikafjell to Framfjord. We will make a couple of stops along the way for you to enjoy and photograph some of the area’s most heavenly landscapes, as well as making a short stop in the picturesque town of Vik to visit its impressive medieval Stave Church.

On this special sea kayaking adventure, we will branch off into Arnafjord to revel in this quaint fjord’s spectacular scenery. This lesser known fjord is the perfect opportunity to get away from the big boats and crowds of tourists. Enjoy the peace and tranquility of this fjord’s beautiful waters, without the sound of a boat’s engine. Just the sound of the water lapping on your kayak and the splash of your paddle in the water. Bliss!!!

Arnafjord is well known for its tiny settlements, excellent fishing and sun-drenched bays for swimming. Its towering peaks, hanging valleys and beautiful waters are sure to take your breath away.

We are very pleased to learn that Sognefjorden is currently in the process of being certified as a sustainable destination and proud to be able to provide you with such an incredible, eco-friendly tour in this area.
