Enjoyed a really good 3 hour paddle with Daniel as our guide. He was great at guiding the group, and gave us some interesting insights along the way. The Aurlandsfjord is obviously stunning but kayaking allows you to see it in a really different way, and I think to appreciate the scale of it all even more!

I cannot thank our guide Daniel enough for the incredible experience that was our Old Kings Path tour yesterday. So many interesting bits of information and lovely to see the sites away from the hustle and bustle of Flåm. Wetsuit, cag, buoyancy aid and drybags were all thoughtfully included. The hike was simple but provided lovely scenery and a great... More

Finally, my dream to try kayaking came true, and there cannot be a better place for your first experience than Norwegian fjords. We took a 3-hour trip from Flåm. Good guide (Marta), good instructions, lots of gear to borrow. Very smooth and exciting experience, which I recommend to everyone who happens to pass by Flåm.

We did the Old Kings Path Kayaking adventure with guide Daniel. Daniel was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and easy to get along with. The tour itself was incredible, from start to finish we loved it! Daniel was great at teaching us how to set up our kayaks and what to do out on the water for both the mildly experienced and...

Kayaking the fjords was awesome! Njord covers all safety details, has all the equipment you need, and leads an awesome kayaking trip. The water, equipment and guide were all great. Marta was our guide and she was great. We highly recommend the experience.

Our guides, Frieda and Irving were very professional and thorough with all aspects of our tour. My daughters and I had fun and enjoyed every minute with them! Next time, we would love to experience the fjord with Paddle Boards! That would be sooo cool! "The California Girls"

We stayed in Flam for 3 days in our trip to Norway and decided to do the old kings path trip whilst we were there. We both really enjoyed the trip despite the weather not being on our side. It was dry when we started but it did rain on and off during our paddle. Daniel our guide was very... More

Excellent tour with Daniel and Frida, they were both very friendly and helpful. Daniel is a pro, his talks were engaging and informative and his attention to detail was impeccable. I would highly recommend this kayaking and short hiking experience as a way to immerse yourself a bit more into Norway's natural wonders.

Had a great time kayaking and camping on the fjord. Its all inclusive - kayak, wetsuit, food and equipment. You just need to follow their list of what to bring and you're set. The guides are knowledgeable about the area and can tell stories of the Vikings and local history, including WWII and the Norwegian Resistance. Camp food is great... More
