2. Stavanger: Lysefjord Kayaking Trip with Gear & Snacks

Explore the incredible fjord landscape in Lysefjordon on this guided kayaking tour. Learn the basics of kayaking, then embark on the water to see mountains, gorges, waterfalls, and wildlife. Take breaks to learn about the area and fully enjoy the scenery.  After meeting your guide, start with a short briefing about the trip, safety talk, and waivers.

When you've got hold of the basics, follow your guide across the fjord where you'll be paddling closely along to the 300-400m tall mountains, exploring beautiful gorges and waterfalls, and hopefully meeting some of the curious seals of the fjord. Enjoy multiple short breaks on the water, where you can enjoy a chocolate snack and learn about local history, culture, and wild edibles in the fjord. Before turning around to head back home, paddle right below the Pulpit Rock.

Tldr - an awesome gig with a great guide! We started off with a quick, but comprehensive safety/padding training and then we were off. There was also a moment about splash skirts, but I'll let you come up with your own jokes, when the time comes ;) Weather was spectacular for the event, so everything aligned for our group to have an excellent adventure. Our Mighty Dane of a leader proved to be both knowledgeable about his craft and entertaining sharing stories and trivia about the fjord and the surrounding mountains. Pacing was excellent as well, winds and current really helped us get through everything we could possibly see in the allotted time. Things to consider: - transportation - plan your route in advance...duuh - endurance - this was my first time paddling, but if I could manage the whole 14km with no prior training, then you can succeed too (technique matters). Do yourself a solid favor - book the trip, enjoy the stunning views and keep an eye out for seals ;) and jellifish

It was simply an excellent kayak trip on the Lysefjord with Nordic Paddling. They were extremely competent and nothing was missing. We had a fantastic guide in Sebastian, who was always good for stories about the area and good advice on the water. We felt in the best hands while we were on the fjord, so we could just enjoy the fantastic nature. Many recommendations from here.

We had a brilliant 3 hour kayak trip with our guide Dan. The booking was easy and the information sent very comprehensive. Equipment was good and the scenery stunning. I would highly recommend Nordic Paddling

Great trip. Good guidance and you can master the kayaking itself in no time. Beautiful views and steep cliffs. Highly recommended

It was breathtaking! Very nice and helpful tour guide! We recommend!
