Tldr - an awesome gig with a great guide! We started off with a quick, but comprehensive safety/padding training and then we were off. There was also a moment about splash skirts, but I'll let you come up with your own jokes, when the time comes ;) Weather was spectacular for the event, so everything aligned for our group to have an excellent adventure. Our Mighty Dane of a leader proved to be both knowledgeable about his craft and entertaining sharing stories and trivia about the fjord and the surrounding mountains. Pacing was excellent as well, winds and current really helped us get through everything we could possibly see in the allotted time. Things to consider: - transportation - plan your route in advance...duuh - endurance - this was my first time paddling, but if I could manage the whole 14km with no prior training, then you can succeed too (technique matters). Do yourself a solid favor - book the trip, enjoy the stunning views and keep an eye out for seals ;) and jellifish

The pickup is punctual and the driver give us some inside about Norway. It’s great pleasure to meet up with nice tour guide Paul and Po (hopefully I spell the name correctly). It’s great trip throughout the whole journey for this private trip especially when you’re traveling with family and dragging with luggages. Overall great experience.

It was a wonderful experience. The wheather forecast was terrible and we were really afraid of the freezing temperatures. It turned out to be a very cold day but at least it stayed dry!!!! The different views were amazing. The guide was incredible and made the whole experience unforgettable. Arne is a very charming person

Great trip. Good guidance and you can master the kayaking itself in no time. Beautiful views and steep cliffs. Highly recommended

Friendly.. Must do when you are in Tromso. Equip yourself! It is very cold..
