All our adventures take place in wild places. Things can go wrong in wild places. Your perfectly planned itinerary may change a bit (or a lot) if the weather turns, someone gets hurt, or a volcano erupts. Usually though, changes make it all the better.
You'll be staying in local hostel accommodation in Bergen or Voss on the first night. The rooms are typically 4 person dorm rooms. Your local hosts will confirm your exact accommodation once you have confirmed your travel arrangements (via email after booking).
On the second night, pull your kayak into the beach and camp with a wild campfire and a barbecue.
You will be sleeping in quality 2-man tents. Sleeping matts and sleeping bags are also provided - bring your own if you prefer. These will be stored in dry bags on your kayak while you’re out on the Fjord. If you have not requested your own tent, you may have to share a tent with another member of the same sex in the group.
There is a composting eco toilet outhouse near the camp spot. There are no showers, (but a lovely fjord to swim in!)
Private rooms/tent upgrades
If you wish to have your own private room in the hostel on the first night, or a private tent during the trip, then please request this after booking. Your host will contact you by email to confirm your travel and personal details and any extras you wish to add. Private rooms are limited availability, and cost an additional 400NOK (approx £40, $50). Single tents are available for 150NOK (approx £15,$20). Both are payable locally, but must be booked in advance.
Known as the gateway to the Fjords, Bergen is a UNESCO World Heritage City as well as a European City of Culture. There is plenty to see and do, so it's well worth considering extending your stay or arriving early to explore this beautiful city.
Once you leave Bergen, your journey winds through the breathtaking Stalheim gorge on your way to the fjord-side village of Gudvangen. Over the weekend you'll paddle north through the fjord before arriving in the remote village of Unredal on Sunday. You'll be surrounded by seriously incredible mountains, cliffs and majestic waterfalls. Keep an eye out for seals.
