This by far was one of the best tours of the fjords I have been on. The boat was immaculate and the crew, top rate. They were helpful, courteous and friendly. They took the time to show us all the special things along the way... giving us time for photos... Loved it.

Never responded to emails and when we turned up to see them on site the guy was very rude and wouldn't even let us join the group that had spaces. Wouldn't recommend them.

We booked this tour just the day before we wanted to go. We met at the beach and our guide (I think her name was Marta, from Poland) took us through a concise, but not long winded safety brief. Then we were on the water. The scenery is amazing and the water is so calm. We kayaked for about an... More

This was the main feature of a 10 day tour of Norway I took with 3 friends, and it was definitely the best part of the trip! We took a 3 day kayak tour through the fjords starting in Flam and ending in Gudvangen. It was beautiful and epic in every way. Our guide Liselotte was awesome! She knew a... More

5 guys, 5 days, 1 excellent guide and more fjord than you can shake a paddle at. We'd been looking forward to our trip for the whole of summer, a chance to get away from the madness of London, see some of the world's most epic scenery and maybe even get a bit fitter. This trip did not disappoint. On... More

Wife and I and boys (14 and 17) took 4 hour old kings trip with guide Erika. Good way to get an intro to the history of the area and to appreciate the enormity of the fjord's rock walls. Erika was friendly and knowledgeable, though new to the area. This trip is for all levels of kayakers, including beginners, so... More

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
