Why take this tour?

This is a magical sea kayak journey, that takes you 60 miles (100km) down Western Norway’s Wild Arctic Fjords, with wild campsites ideally placed on the banks of the fjords or after short hikes up to historic mountain ledge farms with fantastic vistas.

Ålesund, Norway’s Art Nouveau City; also describe as Norway’s cutest city is a great starting point for the World-famous Norwegian Fjords Sea Kayaking Journey. The backdrop for our launching site is Ålesund’s southern harbour, which is speckled with green grassy parks, mountainous islands, a skyline of art nouveau interspersed with modern architecture, lazy marinas and pleasure-crafts bobbing on glistening fjords. Exiting Ålesund’s harbour, a secluded sound leads you out to a unique string of islands running north-east of the city. This intricate archipelago stretches the length of Ellingsøy Fjord and with the sun at your back we aim our kayaks north-east island-hopping our way down Ålesund’s northern fjord. Gliding stealthily around islands laid out like a string of pearls dotted with abandoned farms, quaint cottages, secret meadows, and beacons bearing a of a real maritime heritage.

Navigating the bridges of Skodje County and Solnor Canal takes us to the entrance of the Grand Fjord which has cut its path through the granite and gneiss mountains of the Sunnmøre Alps, creating a surreal landscape that is both awe-inspiring and breathtaking. Formed like canyons with steep granite walls that begin 400 meters below the sea’s surface and reach 1500 meters above, the fjords of western Norway make us feel infinitesimal in our sea kayaks as we paddle this venue of raw natural beauty with snow capped mountains, towering granite walls, thundering waterfalls, mountain ledge farms, flowering fruit trees, and quaint villages tucked into small protective bays.

Rounding the point at Matvik, marks the entrance to the world’s most photographed fjord, Geiranger Fjord. The rugged beauty is overpowering as we glide down the jade green waters, feeling small under the towering granite walls that stretch 1500 m above, we paddle towards the end of the fjord passing rushing waterfalls and historic mountain ledge farms perched precariously high; making the final turn, the hamlet of Geiranger rises in front of us marking your journeys end.
