Passing through the landscape that has been carved out by glaciers, watching the waterfalls dive off the steep mountainsides and if we are lucky we might even spot some seals, otters porpoise and eagles on our way. fff A experienced kayak and mountain guide will lead you on your way through the fjords and on the mountain, as well as through the history of the area.
