Had a wonderful day Kayaking - picked up from the cruise ship and headed back down the fjord about 8 minutes, meaning that when we got out of the water we had the whole of the fjord to ourselves. Couldn’t fault the service or the information provided before we went. Trip made for my husband when the dolphins appeared!

It was really incredibly beautiful and impressive, also a lot cheaper than the kayak excursion through the cruise provider. Oddbjörn has given us a super introduction, explains everything well, and given even a map overview in the fjord. Oddbjörn and his family are really hospitable!

We have 5.0 ratings on Google, Facebook, TripAdvisor and other platforms. We cannot guarantee that the sun is shining, but we do our best.

Questions and answers

Quite often in the summer, but it depends on the weather conditions.

Yes, we have a large and free parking area. The largest vehicle we accommodated this year was a 10-meter long camper.

We offer rental of electric bikes and stand-up paddleboards (SUP). We also provide guided tours by electric bike and on foot.

Please wear comfortable clothing. Wetsuits are not necessary for this activity.

We are a 5 minute drive from Olden center. We will send you address and directions instantly after booking.

Yes, we have free private parking for you.

In the waterproof room in the kayaks, or inside your car or in our house. Drybag is not necessary, since the kayaks have waterproof rooms.

The bathroom is not available during the virus. Visit a bathroom at a gas station or similar, before you arrive.

About the Kayaks

Yes, you may bring your dog and the price is the same as for a human. However, if you have not kayaked with your dog before, we recommend that you do so on a small lake when the weather and water are at their warmest. Check out the video and read more about a Japanese Spitz that kayaked with us last year.

Yes, the Boreal Design Ookpik is well-suited for tall (195+ cm) and large paddlers. Please let us know in advance, so we can have it set aside for you.

Yes, kids older than 5 will normally enjoy kayaking. For kids 5 years old and up to 10/11-years it’s normally best with a double kayak. Let the kid sit in the front seat. The double kayak works fine, even if the kid stops paddling. I have often kayaked for hours, without any help from the kid in the front, he was just relaxing. Kids older than 10 will often handle one of the single kayaks.

We have ten single kayaks and three double kayaks. See pictures at the bottom of this page.

All double kayaks and 3 of 4 single kayaks have a rodder. Disclaimer: Some rodders might be out of function some days each season (remember to take up the rodder when you make landfall). An interesting thing is that the main purpose of the rodder is not to turn, believe it or not. The main purpose is to help the kayak going straight in strong sidewind or currents (we have no currents, and rearly strong wind). Personally, I never use the rodder here unless the sidewind is very strong.

Only if you have kayak certificate and experience, because it’s safer without. We have 2 spray skirts.

Yes. We have many vests, from 15 kilos up to 90+. Vest, paddle and map are always included.

Swim shoes are included so you can enter and exit (on a beach, for example), without getting your holiday shoes wet.

In the waterproof room in the kayaks, or inside your car or in our house. Drybag is not necessary, since the kayaks have waterproof rooms.
