Fjord Explorer three day guided tour

On this three day guided kayak tour we paddle from Flåm out the Aurlandsfjord and the full length of the UNESCO-listed Nærøyfjord.
Passing through the landscape that has been carved out by glaciers, watching the waterfalls dive off the steep mountainsides and if we are lucky we might even spot some seals, otters porpoise and eagles on our way.

On day two we have a choice to take a hike to Beitelen, a viewpoint at 980 m above sea level or Stigen, a mountain farm. Both will give a chance to take in the spectacular view of how the Fjords have been carved out by the glaciers. The view will take your breath away! After the hike we continue the journey into the Nærøyfjord, the evening will be spent in camp in the Nærøyfjord. On day three we continue the journey towards Gudvangen in the Nærøyfjord.
