About the company
Are you dreaming of a real authentic adventure? Longing for silence and tranquility?
Do you wonder how it feels relaxing outside your tent, after spending a full day exploring one of the world’s most beautiful landscapes, using the most environmental friendly means of transport ever – the kayak?
If you long for some of the above you should check out Njord. We have been guiding people in the outdoors since 1999, given thousands of customers a great day out – or the adventure of a lifetime – kayaking the beatiful fjords of Norway.
Western Norway is the area for our activities. Njord specialize in kayak and wilderness adventures, in the fjords and by the North Sea coastline. We have bases in Flåm and – if you are in for a real adventure – the amazing archipelago of Bulandet. For the last years, we have set the standard for adventure tourism in Norway, building a happy and competent crew to give our customers the best of service.
Our philosophy is that our main product is everlasting and positive vacation memories. We only recruit guides that have considerable knowledge about nature and safety, a structured mind and the positive spirit that is the core value of the company. We are concerned with the nature that surrounds us and have a philosophy of leaving no trace of our journey. The only thing we leave behind is ripples in the water.
We have on offer shorter 3-4 hour tours, multiday tours, rentals and kayak courses from beginners to advanced level. We have a flexible and adaptable organisation and are fully focused on providing the best service possible to our customers
We have a policy of training and employing local guides. We aim to have at least 50% local guides and instructors. Every season we have several local youths in as trainee guides. All Njord Guides are either qualified trough the Norwegian Paddle Association (NPF), National Outdoors Leadership School (NOLS), British Canoe Union (BCU) or American Canoe Union (ACA).
All guides have been taking part in our Guide Training Programme. This programme focus on; Safety issues; Technical kayaking skills; Customer relations; Guide skills; Local culture and history; Environmental awareness. All our guides have a valid First Aid qualification, preferably NOLS WFR.
