One of the many activities that Olden Active offers is kayaking, something you should experience when you are in Olden.
Today we have really enjoyed the area! We went with Olden Active on kayaking into the majestic Nordfjord, surrounded by high mountains and waterfalls. The emerald green water was completely silent, we could reflect in the water surface and the only thing that made movement in the water was ourselves. It was an absolutely perfect day for kayaking!
The two skilled guides Thomas and Elise gave us a safety brief, equipment and training, before we paddled out on the fjord. They told us local stories and legends, while pointing out beautiful mountains and walks we could do afterwards. You can read more about these two great guides here !
The trip went from Mølla Guesthouse in Olden and on to Avleinsvika towards Loen, where we took a break and a swim. It was actually not as cold as you would think, despite the fact that it is meltwater from the glaciers and from the snow on the mountain tops that has flowed down into the fjord. By the way, did you know that it is the mineral-rich water from the glaciers that makes the water in the fjord turn green?
It was an absolutely wonderful kayak trip with beautiful views to high mountains and waterfalls. After the trip we had a delicious lunch at Mølla Guesthouse in the sun. Remember to bring swimwear and sunscreen if it is sunny!
- Have a nice trip!
