Long Day Tour to the Nærøyfjord Norway
Our Long Day Tour is an extended version of our very popular Day tour originally set up when we started running tours. On this longer tour we meet earlier in the morning and therefore get on the water sooner, allowing us to go further. Departing daily throughout July and August only, this tour is a popular option for those who can spend the extra time and have the fitness to complete longer distances. We typically cover 20-25 km of paddling on this tour and will, if weather conditions permits, end the tour in the village of Undredal.
The Nærøyfjord Norway is truly the pearl of all Fjord Tours – we are sure you will agree when you have seen and experienced the incredible Nature found here! The area is truly unique and definitely one of the most spectacular fjord areas in the world. In July 2005, Nærøyfjord Norway was included on UNESCO‘s prestigious list of World Heritage Parks, thus ensuring that future generations can still enjoy what we are today. We welcome this accomplishment and work actively to preserve this fantastic and natural resource.
The Nærøyfjord heritage park represents an area of total 570 square kilometres in the Counties of Sogn & Fjordane and Hordaland.
Surrounded by Mountains and Glaciers it represents in reality the popular image of the famous Norwegian fjords.
If you plan to visit this area, make sure you do see it from the seat of a kayak – it is probably the most harmonic way to experience the fjords, while enjoying the fresh air and beautiful scenery.
You need to meet us at our Sea Kayaking Center in Gudvangen by 9:00 if you want to join us for this tour, meeting in Voss is not possible as we leave earlier. This means you may have to plan staying in Gudvangen the night prior to the tour or plan for early travel. Our trips usually return to Gudvangen by 5:45pm.
If you are coming up from Bergen, there are direct buses to Gudvangen 2 or 3 times a day, check www.skyss.no for timetables.
When Booking this tour, please make sure you select the LONG DAYTOUR in our booking system to avoid any confusion. If you book via e-mail and do not specify which Fjord tour you wish to book, we will book you in for the standard tour and confirm accordingly.
At our base in Gudvangen our guide first go through the plans for the tour before we get you equipped with your personal paddle gear for the tour. We set up our Kayaks for best comfort and host a Kayak Safety briefing before getting on the water. Our guide will ensure an unforgettable fun time for all the members of the groups they lead.
We paddle into the very heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Park in our kayaks and leave all roads behinds us as we take you to the special places only accessible by kayaks and small boats. We paddle past small local farms, waterfalls, green forest clad mountains – during spring and early summer these mountains are still snow covered on the top. We stop a few times during the day at hidden gems and get out to stretch our legs and take a well deserved rest. Groups are usually relatively small with 4-10 paddlers plus our guide.
Guides will share their knowledge about the area and local history and culture with you, providing an insight to life along the fjords from early settlement until today. The area is rich in interesting Geological features, has a rich Fauna adapted to the special climate prevailing in the fjords. All in all a fantastic day out and highly recommended by many independent travelers as well as most leading Travel guides.
