Norway’s ‘Art Nouveau’ City is the perfect starting point for a paddling adventure along it’s world-famous Fjords.

Majestic fjords cut deep into the mountains of Sunnmøre, creating a surreal landscape that is both awe-inspiring and breathtaking.  This is an area of raw beauty with snow capped mountains, towering granite walls, mountain ledge farms, flowering fruit trees and quaint villages tucked into small protective bays.

Deep in the fjords, the mountains block the sea from further penetrating Westward and granite walls climb up 1500m to mark the gateway to the Jotunheimen range. Here charming villages invite as the fjords of Sunnmøre have hosted adventure travelers for generations.

Norway’s best adventure trip designers are bringing back a classic! Kayak More Tomorrow’s Classic Majestic Fjords Paddle is back and improved so join us on a 5-day adventure along Norway’s World-Famous Fjords.
 

ITINERARY

A presentation of the week a head, what to expect in terms of weather, paddling conditions, route description, a complete day by day break down of the trip with tide calculations and morning departure times, overview of our accommodation and a meal outline, also, you will receive dry bags from us to pack your personal gear so that you are ready on Monday morning; as well any changes in the program, route, etc. that were deemed necessary.

Refreshments will be served.

DAY 1
Monday morning, your guide will arrive at your hotel, right after breakfast at 09:00; from here we take a short drive to our launching site. At the launch we finish packing and loading our sea kayaks, before gearing up and pushing off

We slip into our sea kayaks and our senses come alive with the buzz, aromas and the pastel colors of the art nouveau facades adorning the city's waterways. Paddles slicing through crystal-clear water, our sea kayaks slide out onto Ålesund’s fjords.

Ålesund’s waterways are speckled with historic features and sights. From stunning heritage art nouveau facades to over 100-year-old historical landmarks guarding her harbour’s. The city skyline and mighty Borgund Fjord all chiseled on a seemingly painted backdrop of the majestic Sunnmøre Alps.

Borgund Fjord, keeping the southern city sights, sounds & smells on our left we paddle its glistening waters; floating through Nørve Sound to the entrance of Ellingsøyfjord with its fairy tale islands. Cruising amongst poetic islands we leave urbanization behind and search out an island camp for the night.

DAY 2
The tides dictate our departure from our Island this morning; as we need the current in our favour to both paddle under the Skodje bridges and make it through the Solnør canal.  Once we are through the canal we stop to stretch our legs in Solnør Bay. This is our last stop before we enter the fjords. Paddling south we cross directly over Storfjord before stopping on the south shore for lunch.  Following the southern coast of Storfjord we make our way to Ytste Skotet our paddling destination for the day.

Paddling over Ramstad Bay we follow the southern coast of Storfjord to Ytste Skotet our paddling destination for the day. Upon landing at the trail head of Ytste Skotet we unload the gear that we will need for a night at the farm. The hike up to this historic farm takes about 25 min. After arriving at Ytste Skotet a refreshing dip in the creek feels wonderful after 2 days of paddling.


Ytste Skotet is an historic mountain ledge farm that beholds a breath-taking view of the fjords; it is here we camp for the night.

DAY 3
After a good breakfast at the farm we hike down to our waiting kayaks on the shores of Storfjord; where we load up our gear and launch onto the fjord. Today we paddle the waters of Storfjord; depending on our progress and fishing luck we land at our camp-site on the shores for Storfjord. 

Relaxing on the banks of Storfjord swapping stories around our campfire while our fresh fish supper is being prepared is the perfect finish to our day on Storfjord.

DAY 4
Fully refreshed we push off early this morning, we head for the light that signals the entrance to Sunnylvsfjord, rounding the headland we head down this seemingly never-ending fjord, a short break for a picnic lunch at one of the few possible landing spots. Feeling minuscule, the steep mountain walls give the impression of paddling down a deep canyon we push on; just over half way down we land at our destination for the night, the historic ledge farm at Åkernes.  

After landing at Åkernes the short hike up to the farm is a refreshing stretch of our legs after paddling down Sunnylvsfjord. The view is fantastic from this historic farm; and as the evening sun dips below the rugged mountains, we dine on another glorious fjord meal. 

DAY 5
We break camp early and head down to the coast and our waiting kayaks. Launching onto Sunnylvsfjord, we cross-over and follow the coastline down to the mouth of the Geiranger fjord. Rounding the point at Matvik we enter Geiranger fjord, where a welcomed short stop at the farm to stretch our legs and refuel on a light snack before pushing further down majestic Geiranger fjord.

The thundering waterfalls and mountain ledge farms of Geiranger fjord include: the Bridesvail, Severn Sisters, Suitor, Gjerde, Skageflå, and Knivsflå entice us to stop and play, get your cameras ready as the world’s most photographed fjord presents many a postcard backdrop. 

 

Rounding the final bend, the hamlet of Geiranger beckons us at the very end of this marvelous fjord; it is here we end our journey through Norway’s World-Famous Fjords. 

In Geiranger there is time for a quick exploration of the tiny village while your guides load up the gear before KMT’s van transports you back to Ålesund.
