2 Day Sea Kayaking Tour to the Nærøyfjord and Aurlandsfjord

Aurlandsfjord and Nærøyfjord Tours

Our 2 day guided Sea Kayaking tour, across the Nærøyfjord and Aurlandsfjord, is a one-way tour with Camping accommodation included. We paddle through the full length of the Nærøyfjord and enter the Aurlandsfjord on the second day. Plenty of time for exploring and relaxing.

These Overnight Guided Tours of the Nærøyfjord and Aurlandsfjord are no doubt the best way to truly experience the quiet atmosphere found at the fjords. If you can spare the time and want to spend relaxed quality time out in the fjords, these tours are highly recommended!

Meet interesting new people and make new friends as you spend the evening relaxing around the campfire.

We provide quality equipment and instruction for all clients. Accommodation is in tents, which are provided by us. You should bring your own sleeping bag and Therm-a-rest. These are also available for rent if you do not have your own.

We have been offering our 2-day tour of the Nærøyfjord and Aurlandsfjord since we started operating back in 1998. Always a winner!

Departures: See listed departure dates for tours already set up and available, or contact us to inquire about setting up a new departure for this tour (must be at least 4 people to set up a new departure date).

The trip begins at 09:00 at our floating base in Voss from where transport to the fjord is included or you can meet us at our Sea Kayaking Center in Gudvangen by 10am. We introduce you to your guide and other members of the group. We get you equipped with your personal paddle gear for the tour. We provide assistance with pre-trip packing and preparation before we get on the water late morning. Our trips usually return to Gudvangen by 5:00pm and back in Voss by 6.30pm (timings based on our standard schedule may alter on busier days).

Aurlandsfjord and Nærøyfjord sea kayakingThe drive to Gudvangen, our starting place for the tour, is very scenic. On our way we pass the Stalheim gorge before entering the Nærøyvalley leading down to Gudvangen at the mouth of the fjord.

The Nærøyfjord, Gudvangen and the valley leading up to Stalheim has been a popular tourism destination for almost 150 years – not without a reason – the scenery is spectacular and here we will spend the next two days in our kayaks!

All clients receive comprehensive personalized instruction and briefing before getting on the water. Our guide will ensure an unforgettable fun time for all the members of the groups they lead. Any luggage or belonging you will not be needing to take with you on the trip can be left at our base in Gudvangen just mention it to your guide and they can organize this with you.

This trip will show you most of the spectacular Nærøyfjord in a way that allows you plenty of time to see and experience the fjords. You will get to know the other people on the tour better and it is rather like a group of friends paddling together than a guided tour.

On the tour we will visit areas only accessible by Kayak or Boats. Late afternoon we arrive at our campsite for the night where we pull out our Kayaks and take a well deserved rest.

Aurlandsfjord and Nærøyfjord campingAfter setting up Camp you may go for an short unguided freedom walk and get a view of the fjord from a different perspective. For walking the tracks, firm footwear is required, but Hiking boots are not essential for this tour.

Back at the camp we will enjoy a delicious barbecue dinner before relaxing around the camp fire at night.

After a leisurely breakfast on Day 2 we break up Camp, pack up our Kayaks and get back on the water late morning. We continue kayaking north throughout the Nærøyfjord and explore the magnificent Cliff faces found here – hopefully we spot some seals along our way. We are entering a part of the fjord where take-outs are rare and will visit one of the more majestic Waterfalls entering the Fjord in the outer part of the Nærøyfjord. We stop for lunch early afternoon when we come over a suitable pull out.

Mid afternoon we arrive in Undredal, a remote village at the Aurlandsfjord, where we finish kayaking and pull out our kayaks . We will be able to enjoy a well deserved ice cream in the sun before the company shuttle arrives and return us back to our base in Gudvangen. Here we unload and sort out our personal items.

Arriving back at Voss late afternoon/ early evening you may choose to stay in Voss or travel onwards to Bergen or Oslo, we will be happy to assist you making plans as a part of your booking process or you can browse our website for more advise and information.

Aurlandsfjord and Nærøyfjord camp sitesAll Meals are included. We can cater for most dietary requirements and vegetarians are welcome. Special dietary needs need to be advised in advance. Meals are fresh, generous and varied.
