So you’re in for an epic kayaking expedition of the entire Lysefjord? Great! The standard tour is offered with camping in idyllic locations. If you’re not into this, ask for an upgrade to accommodation in the comment field of your booking and we’ll get back to you with an offer.
The journey starts at 16.00 in Forsand on the ferry quay. You’ll start kayaking into the beautiful fjord right away. Throughout the afternoon and the early evening, you’ll paddle 7,5 kilometers to get to the bush camp at Dørvika. There is a toilet here and it is a beautiful location along the fjord.
On the second day after breakfast, you’ll start paddling again. This day you’ll paddle around 20 kilometres along some breathtaking sights, such as the Fantahålå gorge and the world renowned Pulpit Rock, which towers 604 meters above the fjord. Further on await the Hengjandefossen waterfall and Hengjandenibbå, a less known alternative pulpit rock. Our lunch location is in Songesand. Unless you choose the deluxe option, the second night will be spent at Kallastein, a deserted farm on a very idyllic location, only accessible from the fjord. This location holds no facilities, so this will truely be wild camping.
On the third day of this expedition, after breakfast in the morning, you’ll set off on the last 14 kilometres of the tour. This leg will take you along Flørli, Seal Rock and Håheller, a deserted farm at a most idyllic location. As the fjord gets more and more narrow, the big walls get higher. Soon you’ll be at Geitaneset, the base of the impressive Kjerag, another iconic sight of Fjord Norway. Here, you’ll enjoy your lunch. If the clouds aren’t too low, you’ll be able to see the Kjerag Bolten from the water and if you’re lucky you can see basejumpers coming down overhead. After lunch, you’ll paddle on to the end of the fjord at the town of Lysebotn, completing your unforgettable three day paddle expedition through the amazing fjord.
Total paddle distance: 42 kilometer
