Passion

As those that have shared adventures with SUP Norway know. There is so much more to our expeditions than we can display on a web page.

This is our passion.

We love to surprise you with the unexpected and curious along the way. From local Norwegian delicacies to secret spots and spontaneous activities. We love challenging preconceptions/limiting beliefs and exceeding our guests expectations in providing outstanding life experiences.

Because our focus is on fun and being totally present in the awe inspiring grandeur and sheer majesty of Western Norway. We find that many of our guests report profound experiences during their time with us.

I joined an expedition in 2018 and came back from the experience a changed person. It is remarkable what just 5 days out in the Norwegian Fjords can do with your mindset. As an athlete I was used to have my focus on the future, my next goal, whatever was next to accomplish.
In Norway I truly experienced for the first time what it was like to live in the moment. Out there, I could calm my mind and I found a connection to nature that I had never experienced before.

Details

1. Geirangerfjorden

First is the Geirangerfjord
The deep blue UNESCO protected Geirangerfjord is surrounded by majestic, snow-covered mountain peaks, precarious cliff side farm houses and lush, green vegetation. Waterfalls such as the famous ‘seven sisters’, dwarf the world’s largest passenger ships. Basically it is AWESOME! Mere words and pictures just don’t do it justice, but luckily Stand up paddling it absolutely does.

2. Nordfjord & Loen

We will spend two days around Nordfjord. First we’ll climb the via ferrata* (optional) and cross Europe’s longest rope bridge for a stunning view across the fjords before eating at 1000 meters in the famous cliff-top restaurant. Finally, we ride the ‘Skylift’ cable car down again. If this is not your thing, you may alternatively ride up in the Skylift and take a mountain top tour before meeting the climbers in the restaurant.

*A Via Ferrata is a series of steel ladders, cables, and bridges that are bolted into mountain rocks that enable novice climbers to access the otherwise inaccessible.

Next day we will Stand up paddle the stunningly beautiful ‘lovatnet’ glacier lake. It’s peculiar and exquisite aquamarine waters are known for those classic mirrored images of the surrounding mountains, it also hosts some excellent fresh water fishing. Arriving at the end of Lovatnet we will take an easy hike to Kjenndal glacier, the source of Lovatnet. In the evening we have another restuarant meal of fresh trout, caught that morning from the glacier lake itself.

3. Aurlandsfjord & Nærøyfjord

First we travel to Aurlandsvangen to meet with our pilot who will take you above the mountains in the seaplane for a truly unforgettable sightseeing tour.
After your flight, we’ll paddle across Aurlandsfjord to the tiny but wonderful village of Undredal, where we can enjoy the famous local goat cheeses and meats in the fjord-side restaurant. The huge goat pizzas here are a firm favourite, followed by brown goat cheese and strawberry jam on waffles. Oh my!

Sognefjord is the longest & deepest navigable fjord in the world and one of it’s arms – UNESCO protected Nærøyfjord – is undoubtedly the most dramatic and majestic.
The next two days is an adventure in itself. We will paddle Aurlandsfjord and the length of Nærøyfjord, the jewel in the crown of all the fjords. We have already flown over it, so now let’s paddle it! At only 250 meters wide at it’s narrowest point, 1500 meter sheer high mountains surround us and the cliffs are striated with hundreds of waterfalls. We may find ourselves paddling in the company of ‘niser’ (the indigenous species of porpoise), giant sea-eagles can be seen soaring over head and be prepared for a cheeky seal every now and then. We will overnight at Odnes, a truly magical place and have what can only be described as a ‘waterfall adventure’.

The last half of Nærøyfjord is equally amazing paddling and as we land at Gudvangen we will prepare for the night’s expedition party in a very cool converted barn.

We are famous for springing surprises and who knows what might happen before we drop you back in Bergen!

Information and things to do in Bergen

Yes. Alcohol & snacks are not included and if you have to leave the expedition in an emergency you may need to take a ferry or other public transport.

There will be shops available at some points in the expedition. Cards are accepted everywhere, including ferries & buses.

A comprehensive gear list will be sent to you when you book with us. You will just need to bring personal clothing/gear.
Due to it’s nature, SUP exploring requires minimalist, lightweight and efficient gear and this is the way we roll (paddle).

We do have limited extra items of personal gear if needed.

Norwegian saying: “There is no bad weather. Only bad clothing”

Royal Marine saying “Any idiot can be uncomfortable in the field.”

We will be comfortable :)

No. We don’t use or supply wetsuits. In reality, we paddle in board-shorts & t-shirts or long-sleeved tops depending on sun or cloud. If raining, we put on a shell top.  The water temperature is cool/cold. If you do fall in (Happens rarely), you are dry again in 5 mins and every paddler will have a towel and warm top to hand if needed.
Paddling in a wetsuit for over 2 hours will make you sweaty, smelly and actually colder than if you paddle dry.
On most expeditions, we stop and have a swim to cool down at some point. The picture on the right was taken in May.

Most of the areas we paddle in are quite protected and beautiful. We try to avoid head-winds and wavy conditions where possible. If conditions deteriorate to a level outside the group’s comfort zone then we can wait it out, paddle down wind to another destination or also re-location via road or boat may also be possible.

We have not yet experienced a day when we could not paddle. If this ever happens, there is always lots to do at all the stops in this amazing environment.
