We have great news! We are moving locations!

After 4 years of paying ridiculously high rental prices for a sub-standard facility. We have decided to cut Kr. 450 000 a year from our overhead and past these savings directly on to you, our guest, by increasing the quality of our trips with up-graded gear, highly trained guides and best of all lower trip prices.

We started out as a guiding service; we are returning to our roots by cutting out highly taxed drop-in hourly rentals. Also, we are out on the water, on tour with our guests all day every day so, we don’t need an overpriced showroom in Ålesund where we enrich greedy Norwegians by having our guests pay higher prices due to large overhead.

We know Ålesund better than anyone else after designing and running trips here for 5 years so, this change means that you, our guest, is the true winner! As well we will add a bonus service to you, our guest, we will now meet you at your accommodation or the cruise terminal and transport you for free to our new launching point.

And, because of these changes demand space on our trips is higher than ever before, don’t wait too long to secure your trip with us as our guide schedules are becoming fully booked.

Tour of the Art Nouveau Archipelago

ÅLESUND’S BEST SELLING TRIP! Gliding out onto Borgund Fjord, the sky opens revealing the city skyline, historical buildings, and a spectacular archipelago all chiseled on a seemingly painted backdrop of the majestic Sunnmøre Alps.

The glittering waters of Borgund fjord beacon us as our kayaks glide over the rippling water. We explore a magical string of islands along the north shore before crossing to the southern shore with its intricate maze of islands, here we enjoy a homemade picnic lunch on a private island. Then slipping back on the water, our exploration continues until we find our way back to our staging site.

Fjords, Islands & Sounds Route

Escape the city! Head to Borgund Fjord, keeping the southern city sights, sounds, and smells on our left, we paddle its glistening waters; float through Nørve Sound to the entrance of Ellingsøyfjord with its fairytale islands. We enjoy a wholesome picnic lunch on a lush green island seemingly miles from urbanization.

Jumping on the water again heading west with Ålesund still on our left, we complete our circumnavigation passing by her northern harbor guarded by its 175-year-old navigational beacon and the last remaining buildings of Old Ålesund, we seek out the Asp Island bridge the entrance to Ålesund’s Southern harbor.

Our kayaks glide easily through the harbor, past a 103-year-old historical landmark, and on towards our take-out point; finally, with the city’s southern skyline chiseled on a seemingly painted backdrop of the majestic Sunnmøre Alps, our landing site comes into view.
