Fjord Tour Jørpeland

Description:

We think kayak paddling on the fjords is the best medicine for body and soul, and look forward to giving you a safe and exciting encounter with nature. Our tours are designed to offer you a complete experience where you’ll see, hear, taste, and smell in addition to being physically active and learning how to kayak.

This tour is a great choice for people with little or no kayaking experience and you don’t need any prior knowledge to join.
While still on dry land, our professional kayaking guide will give you an information and safety briefing. With their local knowledge and sea kayaking experience, they will be there to guide you and ensure that you have a safe experience on the fjord. While weaving around Jørpeland’s beautiful coastline, our guide will teach you basic paddling techniques. By the end of the tour, there is a good chance you will be able to master kayaking alone in calm waters.

The area is bustling with wildlife, on both land and at sea.
Part of what makes sea kayaking so exciting is chance encounters wildlife. One of the islets we’ll visit is a favorite nesting area for different types of birds. Sometimes we’re lucky and spot sea eagles in the area. In kayaks, it’s possible for us to silently glide over and observe them without causing a disturbance. In the summer, from May to July, large numbers of salmon are present in the fjord around the islets, and we commonly see them jumping through the air right beside our kayaks. During the tour, you’ll have time to explore the rocky shoreline, where small fish, shrimp, and crabs live in the shallow waters.

During the tour, our guide will also tell stories about local history and Norway’s unique fjord landscapes.
You’ll learn about Jørpeland’s founding and industrial era, as well as the long grave of a powerful woman who was buried there around the year 800. They will also tell you about the fjords and moraines that were formed at the end of the last ice age.

If desired, during the booking process, you may order a packed lunch for your tour.
Our lunch packages are made especially for us by a small bakery using locally sourced ingredients. The kit includes a wholegrain sandwich with scrambled eggs and smoked salmon (from King Mikals laks in Hjelmeland) and apple juice pressed locally in Tau.

After the tour, if you would like to spend more time out on the water, you may pay a small rental fee to use the kayak for the rest of the day. This can either be added during the online booking process, or arranged directly with you guide.

We look forward to giving you a safe and exciting encounter with nature!

Phänomenal Decided for a spontaneous activity just one day in advance. Although we were the only participants the guided tour took place and we had some nice hours in the water. The lunch was superb and our guide came up with many interesting informations about the region as well as good kayaking advices. Highly recommended. Let’s hope the small businesses will survive the pandemic. Stay healthy

Beautiful privat Tour! Today we had booked a Kajaktour, nobody expect my girlfriend and me had booked one, but still the Guide gave us a really nice long tour. He told as a lot about the local area and things we would’ve never known. We had booked a lunch and it’s was also really great an tasteful, especially the aplejuice! 🙂 We both have zero experience in kajaking, but we had great fun! Thank you so much for the great tour! We can recommend to anyone!

Amazing Experience! Me and the wife really enjoyed our tour. Oyvind was very helpful booking the tour and taking us out on the Fjord. We learnt a lot about the local sea life and Islands. We would definitely recommend this tour to family and friends, and will do it again if we ever come back to Stavanger.

Great scenery and very nice guide Had a great time here. Area around Jorpeland is great for kayaking. Guide was very nice. Life jackets were a slightly ragged but functional. Entire tour is very close to shore so not much to worry about. Lots of things to see with wildlife from clams, jellyfish, sardines, jumping salmon, harbor seal, and lots of birds.

Schitterende kajak-tocht vanuit Jørpeland door het Lysefjord Mooie kajak-tocht gemaakt met een gids die goed ter zake kundig is. Goed materiaal en een gids die naast veel over de omgeving en Noorwegen weet ook zeer bedreven is in het kajakken en zijn gasten ook graag leert hoe je beter kunt kajakken en ook over de veiligheid dingen leert.

Flawless Tour! This tour was an amazing experience. I loved the blowing wind, chill and high mountains around me. As a beginner I think that the group leader was a great teacher and provided very useful help and also information about the landscape. I suggest this tour to everyone!

All we hoped for and more We kayaked via the Lysefjord down to Pulpit rock. The guide was knowledgeable beyond kayaking sharing his insights and experiences of Norway. The weather was perfect, the pace was relaxed, the scenery was out of this world, the equipment was solid and the guide was helpful and supportive without being overbearing.
