Kjerag Bigwall Kayak

From: 650,00 kr

Come paddle the Kjerag Bigwalls with us! Join us from Lysebotn on a 3hrs guided tour – safe and suitable for most!

It’s an unforgettable experience to glide silently underneath the majestic granite bigwalls rising hundreds of vertical meters from the Lysefjord. Our goal is Geitaneset, the impressive base of the Kjerag. It’s a perfect location for a break and a snack. You´ll probably see basejumpers landing!

We’ll paddle back along the opposite shore of the fjord with surprises around every corner and an awesome view of the bigwalls.

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!
