Day one begins with a introduction to the kayaks and all the gear. Everybody will attend a safety and rescue course, it is optional to take a swim and be rescued. This on water session is essential fro the groups safety whilst on the tour. After lunch we pack the kayaks and set out on the tour.
We spend the night outside the village Undredal, the goat capitol of western Norway. The guide will prepare a great meal with the assistance of everyone in all duties exept the actual cooking. If we find firewood and the weather permits the evening is spent in calm companionship around a small bonfire.
