On the trip we will paddle along untouched fjords and small communities. From the tranquil quiet Lustrafjord to the busy Sognefjord and past the internationally renowned UNESCO-listed Nærøyfjord. The dramatic scenery will give you a unique experience of the powers of the glaciers cutting their way through the mountains.
On the way we are certain to spot either otter, eagle, fjord porpoise and seals, hopefully all of them. We paddle with a fishing line trailing us. Maybe we catch our dinner?
