Kayaking in the Norwegian fjords
Myrkdalen lies in the heart of Fjord Norway, only 40 minutes from Sognefjorden in the north and the UNESCO-listed Nærøyfjorden in the east. In other words, the perfect starting point for amazing experiences in a kayak. From a kayak, you can enjoy the spectacular Westcoast nature as a family, couple or solo traveller.
Guided sea kayaking tour in Sognefjorden
The trip starts at Myrkdalen hotel, driving over the beautiful high mountain terrain Vikafjellet, then down to Arnafjorden. Arnafjorden is a sunny fjord branch surrounded by the majestic mountains Fagerdalsnipa and Jambueggi.
We highly recommended this trip to anyone looking for an active family holiday in scenic surroundings.
Arriving at the fjord, you will be handed equipment from a guide and shown a demonstration of the gear and safety routines. For families with children, you can go in a tandem kayak where the adult is in the back controlling it. From there on out you can enjoy the fjord - the length of the trip is adjusted to each group.
The trip consists of breaks where you'll have the opportunity to jump into the fjord and enjoy a refreshing swim on hot summer days. It's the company Outdoor Norway that offers this remarkable journey through the fjord. You can order it three days a week from May till September.
