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!

May 2020. Kayak rental Olden

We are often fully booked in weekends and holidays – book now.

Kayak map included

From us you can paddle in many directions, but we recommend paddling towards Olden or Loen with a view to the spectacular mountain Skåla. Most guests paddle for three to four hours. Bring water and food. Enjoy!

On the photo you see the kayaks in the shadow. It will be 2-3 meters to carry them and you are ready to go.

License not needed - Kayak rental Olden

You don’t need a licence to kayak here. Kayak certificate makes sense if the waves are big, or there are boats and ships passing by. Or far from land. Here and hardly any boats. If you have a licence you can paddle anywhere. If you don’t have a licence stay close to land (5 to 30 meters from shore) for extra safety. You must be sober. And you must wear a flotation device (which is always included). If you are unsure about kayaking choose our guided tour.

Cancellation policy

  • Cancellation more than 7 days before: 100 percent refund
  • Cancellation less than 7 days before: 50 percent refund
  • Cancellation 48 hours before, or less: No refund

About the kayaks

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.

The kayaks are built to carry heavy load – but nearly all that tip over are very heavy (115 kilos / 250 pounds or more). Almost none under 100 kilos will tip over.

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

All double kayaks have a rudder. Most single kayaks have skeg. One or more single kayaks has rudder. Disclaimer: Some rudders might be out of function some days each season (remember to take up the rudder when you make landfall). An interesting thing is that the main purpose of the rudder 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 rudder here unless the sidewind is very strong.

We don’t use spray skirts when we paddle here.

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

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.
