Day to Day

Itinerary

Hidden fjord kayaking day 1

Day 1: 

You will meet your guide and the rest of the group in Urke at the waterfront café Urke Kaihus. Get to know each other and the gear as we go through paddling and tour routine. We show you how to pack your gear in the kayak and after a short safety and paddling instruction we leave. We start on the Norangsfjord which we soon leave for the Hjørundfjord. Depending on the wind forecast for the next days we choose to paddle either left or right, to try to avoid paddling with headwinds (at least for 2 days). After a while we find a spot to land along the fjord, where we will enjoy our lunch. It can be a fjord side farm or a tiny island in the fjord.

After paddling and enjoying the sheer size of the fjord and the surrounding mountains you arrive at your destination for the day. A tiny little village where you will stay for the night. You will set camp on a more remote spot. After organizing you prepare dinner as a group. Enjoy a long relaxing evening by the campfire. You can see the light changing, but it never gets totally dark.

Hidden fjord kayaking day 2

Day 2: 

After a good night’s sleep in these very tranquil surroundings, we enjoy breakfast before we pack and get into the kayaks. You paddle through the same fjord on your way back but on a different side. The views, angles, and villages will be different. You paddle relatively close to land (not too close because of rockfall). Today you will stop at a village or at a more remote place for lunch. By the end of the afternoon, you arrive back in Urke. From where you can take the boat back to Ålesund or you can continue your trip further into Norway.
