Paddle & Hike

Combine kayaking with hiking and enjoy a full day of adventures in Geirangerfjord! You will not only see the famous waterfalls such as “The Seven Sisters” and “The Suitor”, but you will also visit abandoned farm called Skageflå, one of the most famous farms in the fjord. From Skageflå, located 250 meters above the sea level, you will hike back to the Kayak Center. The hike from the bottom of the fjord is not very long, but steep (see the map below), so don’t forget your energy, hiking boots and a backpack with water and snacks. The total elevation is 550 meters. The guide takes good care of you at all times during the tour and provides you with facts and stories about the Geirangerfjord and its surroundings. The Paddle & Hike is usually very private with a small number of participants.
