Activity description

Enjoy the stunning Fjord landscape at the bottom of the Hardangerfjord on this incredible Kayaking tour from Osa to Ulvik.

Sea kayaking in the Hardangerfjord is a magically peaceful experience. Be surrounded in complete silence and stunning cliff faces, all while being greeted by seals, porpoises and sea eagles along the way.

You will go ashore for lunch where you will have a bonfire to warm up and help prepare the hot lunch halfway through the trip. The return is just as rewarding, with the afternoon/evening light offering a different but stunning perspective as well as a change in the surrounding wildlife.
