Join us on this amazing nature experience, a guided kayak trip around Øygarden islets outside Bergen. Transport from the Tourist Information and lunch is included.

During this beginner level tour, you will experience coastal wildlife, hear stories about local cultural and natural history, and enjoy delicious food made with locally-sourced ingredients. This tour is the best medicine for your body and soul!

This tour allows you to safely experience the local islets around Bergen with the expertise of a local guide. You do not need any kayaking experience as we will provide instruction in safety and rescue techniques.

Out among the islets there is plentiful birdlife. If you look down through the crystal clear waters you will see small crabs, shrimps and maybe a salmon jumping beside your kayak, if you look up you may see a eagle!

During the tour we will stop for a rest for about half an hour on one of the pretty beaches. You will get served a delicious local lunch of sandwiches with smoked salmon, egg and salad, and apple juice from a local farm which you can enjoy when you relax and soak up the peaceful atmosphere.
