Join us on an unforgettable kayak trip with a guide, far from crowds and disturbances. We paddle back and forth on the magnificent Hjørundfjord. In addition, we hike the spectacular Sunnmør Alps, with fantastic views of the fjord and waterfalls.
By combining hiking and kayaking, you get to use your whole body and you get close to nature and people.
We spend the night in small roadless communities and farms along the fjord. We meet the people who live there. We like to enjoy the evenings outdoors around the campfire.  This tour will truly give you unforgettable natural and cultural experiences.

Prior hiking and paddling experience is an advantage, but not required for this trip. As long as you are in generally good shape and have a sporty attitude, this hiking and kayaking tour will be perfect for you.

  • Day 1: Arrive in Urke and kayak to the roadless village, Trandal

    You meet the guide and the rest of the group in Urke. Now you will get instructions and pack your kayak before paddling the first leg out of the Norangsfjord. We will stop for a lunch break near the small harbour of Lekneset. Then we turn into the Hjørundfjord and enjoy the afternoon paddling to Trandal, a small roadless village.

    We will be staying on a farm with the most amazing views over the fjord and the jagged Sunnmøre Alps in the background.
    Your guide will prepare a delicious meal - with a little help from you.

  • Day 2: Hiking in the Sunnmøre Alps

    Today we hike from Trandal into the Sunnmøre Alps. While hiking uphill, it is nice to see the landscape change from green forests to rocky alpine summits. We take a lunch break at a summer farm, 500 meters (1640 ft) above the fjord with great views. The sporty ones can even hike further up to the summit.

    We return to Trandal and spend a relaxing afternoon at the farm before a group dinner.

  • Day 3: Visit a roadless village and hike to a waterfall

    After breakfast, we leave the farm and paddle into the fjord towards Sæbø. Here we go on shore for a lunch break. In Sæbø, you will find the luxury of a small shop (the only one on this trip).  After lunch, we continue towards another roadless community with only 2 farms.

    We prepare dinner together and spend the night in one of the farmhouses.
    This is a great place for an evening by the fjord, enjoying the campfire, or taking a walk up the valley to the waterfalls.

  • Day 4: Explore the most impressive part of the Hjørundfjord

    Today we paddle the most impressive part of the fjord on our way to Bjørke. The fjord makes turns in between the mountains and this makes it more dramatic and impressive. Along the way, we land on a little peninsula near Utåløyra and pass by Viddal and Finnes before we land in Bjørke. This lovely, slow-living community has some beautiful historic boathouses. 
    We stay at the hostel in Bjørke and hope for a good evening for an outdoor grill.
    In the evening you can go for a walk up to the reservoir to get a nice view of the innermost part of Hjørundfjorden.

  • Day 5: Paddle the final stretch back to Urke

    On our way back to Urke, we paddle on the opposite side of the Hjørundfjord. This is partially the same stretch as yesterday but it is interesting to experience how different the views are while paddling in the opposite direction. A typical lunch spot today is Viddal. Arriving at the Urke Kaihus you can go for a drink with the rest of your group to make a 'skål (toast) to the end of this unique experience.
