During these five days we will visit the Urnes Stav church, dating back to 1135 it is the oldest in Norway. We will spend a night outside the old Viking trading town Kaupanger and hike to the top of one of the mountains along the Fjords. On the trip we will paddle along untouched fjords and small communities. From the tranquil quiet Lustrafjord to the busy Sognefjord into the internationally renowned UNESCO-listed Nærøyfjord.
We paddle with a fishing line trailing us. Maybe we catch our dinner? The dramatic scenery will give you a unique experience of the powers of the glaciers cutting their way trough the mountains. On the way we are certain to spot otter, eagle, fjord porpoise and seals, hopefully all of them.
