Kayak rental

Are you an experienced kayaker? Would you like to explore the fjord on your own? Then feel free to come to our Kayak Center in Homlong, Geiranger. We are open 9:00-17:00, from early May until late September. Once you make it to the Kayak Center, you can choose from single and double kayaks. Our freindly rental staff will give you all the gear (life jacket, spray skirt, paddle) and the information with a map of the area. If you are planning to be out there for more than 3 hours, think about your time of arrival. The Kayak Center is closed after 17:00

We don’t accept online bookings for kayak rental, only for guided tours. We have many single and double kayaks so there is no need to book them it in advance. It hardly ever happens that we run out of kayaks. Nevertheless, the best way how to secure your kayak during the high season (July, August) is to come early in the morning.
