Welcome to a unique kayaking adventure in the inner Lysefjord! Meet us in Lysebotn and we’ll take you for a guided tour of the Kjerag Bigwalls. The Kjerag towers an imposing 1000 vertical meters above the Lysefjord. You will feel dwarfed as we paddle along the steep shores! Halfway, we get to Geitaneset – a surprisingly idyllic pasture with huge boulders scattered around. Goats are grazing here and we have a good chance of seeing basejumpers land right in front of your nose!
