What are the meals like?
Breakfast with bread and/or cereals. Juice, milk, coffee, tea. Everybody makes their own lunch for taking on the trip and can fill their bottles with cold or hot drinks. Dinner is a 2-course (starter or desert, and main course). Often local food like lam, deer, fish, chicken, pasta, rice, potatoes with fresh vegetables. You can bring your own drinks and snacks if you want that.
We do not serve alcohol, but you can take it with you. Keep in mind that alcohol is very expensive in Norway. The best thing to do (so you do not have to bring it with you) to buy it taxfree (very reasonable prices) upon arrival at the airport in Ålesund (this is before you go through customs, so you have to follow the regulations. For amount of alcohol, you can bring to the country please check TOLL customs.)

What is a typical day in a kayak trip?
An average day of a kayak trip consists of 2,5 + 2,5 hours paddling. It can be less paddling on the first day because we will spend some time on packing and preparations. At the end of the first day we will do a short hike to a camping spot. Camping includes making camp and preparing dinner on fire.
The second day starts with breakfast, afterwards we will paddle and have a lunch break (on land), before heading back.
A typical day varies on the type of kayak trip. The program also depends on weather conditions, especially wind, and on skills and abilities of the group.
