Kayaking in the Norwegian fjords

Immerse yourself in Friluftsliv

The Norwegian philosophy of outdoor living is known as Friluftsliv, embracing spending time participating in outdoor activities. Join us as we hike over the Flofjellet mountain pass, along an old trail road past traditional mountain farms. Farming is particularly revered in Norway as it fosters a deep connection with the land and seasons. From Hellesylt, enjoy a relaxing E-bike ride through spectacular moutain scenery, while in Olden embark on a thrilling RIB boat ride to catch your own crayfish, or a beautifully tranquil kayaking journey on Nordfjord. You'll be joined on this cruise by Daniel Albert, who moved to Norway in 2009 and will talk about the way of life and culture here.
