I was looking for a fun activity to do in Flam after a week of hiking in the area. My main objective was to find an activity which was not too physically demanding and I found this!! Our tour guide Anna was so nice and made the tour really fun. We paddled about 3 km into the narrow fjord then... More

This was the activity i looked forward to most whilst exploring the Fjords as well as Oslo and it did not disappoint! Our tour guide, Jada (from Czech/Belgium) was such a nice guy and not only made the tour fun but stopped along the way to tell some great old Norwegian myths and tales. The scenery is so beautiful and... More

We had no kayaking experience before, so we took 3 hours tour. The instructor was very nice, attenctive and patient. All instructions were clear and firendly. The tour itself is not just paddling, guys give you a lot of information about history, culture, fjords, etc. Worth every krone spent. Do not miss it you happen to visit Flåm.

We just had the most fantastic 3-day trip led by Ervin and Erica of the Njord company. The tour started in Flåm and ended in Gudvangen. So why should you take this tour? First of all, the nature is amazing and spending three days in a kayak is much better than rushing by on a ferry or speed boat. And... More

First of all, the Aurland- and Naeroyfjord are a great place to be and to kayak. But what makes this experience really great is the attention of the Njord team, and especially the passion of our guide Ervin. The basics for a good hike are good materials and a professional, experienced guides. But Ervin gives much more. He really makes... More

I took the 4 hour Old Kings trip. Was a really wonderful way to get out the Fjord and see it in all it's glory. The guide was really helpful and gave very informative and entertaining stories/facts. The hike to the waterfall was quite steep but well worth the walk. Would definitely recommend this trip.

This tour is great even if you're an inexperienced kayaker like myself. There were two guides on the tour and one was able to stay with us since we were slow pokes. :-( The kayaks fit two people. It rained during my tour, but the views were still incredible. They provide a place to store your luggage if you have... More

Through Holland America Cruise Line, I booked a kayak trip during the ship's port call in Flam, Norway. I absolutely loved it! Irving and his three assistants whose names I cannot remember were great instructors for a group that ranged from never-paddled to experienced. Their presentation on kayak safety was thorough and appropriate. Seeing the fjords from a kayak was... More

WOW can't recommend this enough. Don't question, just book and go! We were lead by Liselotte and Erica and they were outstanding guides. The food, scenery, equipment and fellow kayaker's company were first class. Be aware and prepared on the first day (wear your swimsuit) you will get wet in the first few hours as you need to pass a... More

Just had the most fantastic trip to Norway taking in Oslo & Flam. Part of the trip was spent kayaking from Flam to Gudvangen led by Liselotte & Erica of the Njord company. From start to finish the whole thing was meticulously planned and carried through by these 2 wonderful guides. They genuinely could not have made the trip any... More
