Highlights

The ultimate contrast to the glacier is to experience the Hardangerfjord and enjoy the fjord sides from a kayak.

About the hike

Daily in summer we arrange sea-kayaking trips on the Hardanger fjord. The trips start from our booking center Juklafjord situated only 30 meters from the Hardangerfjord in the middle of the village Jondal. After an introduction and adjustment of equipment, you are ready for a real fjord experience from the cockpit in sea kayak. We start with basic techniques, how to paddle, control the kayak, and what to do if you fail and turn over and become wet. When you feel safe and can control the kayak the guide will start the trip to “Jonaneset” or other destinations, depending on waves, weather, etc. From the fjord, you will have a magnificent view of the mountains and the fjord landscape.
