Tour description

Your dedicated guide will meet you at the Trolltunga Hotel in Odda, where you will be fitted with a kayak, paddle, sprayskirt, wetsuit, and a life jacket. Upon departure, you will be given a safety briefing and instruction. When all the information has been provided, the guide takes you out in the waiting car and drives up to Sandvinsvatnet where your paddle adventure begins.
Kayaking at Sandvin Lake is a trip through Norwegian history. The lake is surrounded by a cultural landscape, and it's said that this lake and landscape inspired the painting «Bridal Procession on the Hardangerfjord». You pass the Tjødnadalen waterfall and Strandsfossen waterfall as well as the Buar Glacier. The mountains rise from the lake with the Folgefonna Glacier in front, and you are in the middle of all this, sitting in your kayak. Can it get any better?
Have a nice trip!
