INFORMASJON

Norges vakreste eventyr i sommer får du vet å bli med oss på 3 dagers tur eller 5 dagers ekspedisjon! Vi padler i UNESCO-beskyttede Nærøyfjorden og Aurlandsfjorden. Fjell, fosser, niser, havørn, seler, restaurant ved fjorden og fantastisk vakre camping steder Dette har fort bygd seg opp til å bli en svært populær ferie for internasjonalte reisende. Alle de 22 fullbookete ekspedisjonene som var planlagt har derimot blitt flyttet til 2021, så vi har noen få turer til de i Norge som ønsker dette.

Det er så mye mer innhold i ekspedisjonene våre enn det vi klarer å vise på vår webside eller på sosiale medier. Vi elsker å overraske deg med det uventede underveis. Fra lokale norske delikatesser, til hemmelige steder og spontane aktiviteter.

Vårt mål er alltid prøve å overgå våre gjesters forventninger slik at de sitter igjen med en unik følelsen når de forlater oss. Vårt fokus er å ha det gøy -og det å være helt til stede i oss selv – i naturen. Dette og den majestetiske naturen vi er velsignet med her, er årsakene til at våre gjester kommer tilbake år etter år.

Dette er vår lidenskap.

NÆRØYFJORDEN

Sognefjord er den lengste og dypeste fremkommelige fjorden i verden, og Nærøyfjorden – en av armene på sørsiden – er utvilsomt den mest spektakulære delen av den. Her er fjorden omgitt av majestetiske fjell (1700 moh) med snødekte topper, pittoreske landsbyer og hundrevis av fossefall.

Enten det er å oppdage niser under oss eller havørn over oss, padle opp til et dundrende foss (eller bade i den), le rundt leirbålet, eller bare slappe av i den vakreste naturen, så får du en opplevelse for livet.

Drikkeforsyningen er fra de mange granitt filtrerte rene fossefallene. Det er det søteste vannet du noen gang har smakt, garantert! Ingen filter kreves. Hvis du er ute etter eventyr og utrolig natur, kan du finne det her med SUP Norway. Dette er definitivt en «bucket list» tur for veldig mange, så vi har lange venteliste for neste sommer.

MERK!

Store deler av nettsiden og alle våre sosiale medier kanaler er på engelsk. Dette fordi alle våre gjester var internasjonal frem til denne sommeren.

GODT Å VITE

AVSLAPPET TEMPO

Når alle er klare starter vi dagen og kommer oss ut på vannet. Vi lærer oss å padle lydløst slik at vi kan ta inn omgivelsene helt. Vi tar ofte pauser for å filme, fotografere eller bare slappe helt av.

Det er varierte leirplasser som gir mulighet til forskjellige aktiviteter. På slutten av dagen samles vi rundt leierbålet og nyter det gode selskapet til hverandre – eller hvis det passer deg bedre, så trekk deg tilbake og nyt dine fantastiske omgivelser alene.

GRUPPEN

Vi holder antallet i gruppen nede slik at vi får en intim og nær opplevelse – og for å minimere vårt miljøavtrykk. Vi har alltid 1 guide pr. 6. personer slik at vi har maks sikkerhet og alle får personlig oppmerksomhet. Vi har aldri flere enn 12 gjester.

MAT

Tre sunne måltider om dagen blir gitt.

Vi bruker norsk produsert tur-mat av beste kvalitet til frokost og middag. Lunsjer lages fersk av guiden din hver dag og er vanligvis tradisjonell norsk mat. På ekspedisjonene spiser vi et kveldsmåltid på en restaurant rett ved fjorden og en tilberedt frokost dagen etter.

Vi har menyalternativer for Vegansk, Vegansk (GF), Vegetar, Laktosefri, Glutenfri. Husk å si ifra!

“Jeg ble med på en ekspedisjon i 2018 og kom tilbake fra opplevelsen en endret person. Det er oppsiktsvekkende hva bare 5 dager ute i de norske fjordene kan gjøre med tankegangen din. Som idrettsutøver var jeg vant til å ha mitt fokus på fremtiden, min neste mål, hva som var neste for å oppnå.
I Norge opplevde jeg virkelig for første gang hvordan det var å leve i øyeblikket. Der ute kunne jeg roe hodet, og jeg fant en forbindelse til naturen som jeg aldri hadde opplevd før. ”

Arrival Day2018-12-11T10:21:53+01:00

We will contact you the day before you arrive and invite you to advise us on Whatsapp, SMS or Facebook messenger of your E.T.A or any expected delays.

The bus stop ‘Vang camping’ is closest to our base camp at ‘Gudvangen camping’.
Gudvangen camping is just 100 meters away across the road. The other bus stop is in Gudvangen itself. If you get off here, it’s is a 500 meter walk back up the road to the base camp.

You will then find us here:

You may turn up when you like on arrival day but it’s nice to get here in the afternoon and spend the day resting after your journey and getting acquainted with the group.

There will be electricity, showers, refreshments and cool company. After you are settled in and the group is all here, we’ll have a briefing and issue you with all necessary gear and food for the expedition. There will be a little ceremony and then the BBQ starts at 18:00 if everyone is here, or 20:00 at the latest. We will start paddling the following morning.

When do we finish on the last day?2019-06-15T10:12:50+02:00

We will usually arrive back at Gudvangen at approximately 11-12:30, in good time to unpack and catch your bus to Bergen or other transport.
The assistant guide will accompany those that may need to paddle back early in order to catch their bus if required.
If you wish to stay with us at Gudvangen camping for an extra night after the expedition, you are most welcome and may borrow your expedition tent or stay in our group ‘Lavvu’ (Teepee). The camping fee (Nok 160,-) is not included for this night.

Do I need to bring any cash or a card?2018-11-22T21:39:00+01:00

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.

What experience and fitness is required?2020-05-05T09:08:58+02:00

Guests will need to have SUP experience in order to enjoy the days of paddling and to allow the group to travel at practical pace.

*** NEW!!! FREE SUP course at many centers around Norway if you book an SUP Norway tour or expedition in 2020! SEE HERE!***

Please be realistic in assessing  your ability to complete a stand up paddling tour or expedition in varying weather conditions covering 25-30 Km over 3 days (Tour) or 50-70Km over 5 days (Expedition).

An average and healthy individual that engages in some form of regular exercise should have no problems.

The conditions are mostly calm and stable for the summer but we can occasionally run into some wind and a bit of chop, especially at the beginning and end of the season.

We ask that when you arrive for your expedition you:

  • Have a good solid paddle technique.
  • Are confident in your ability to paddle 10 Km (standing up).
  • Are able to effectively (Knee) paddle against a headwind.
  • Can swim 100 meters in open water.

If you are uncertain of your suitability for the expedition, please contact Titus for advice.

Please note: You will be asked to return a ‘Personal details form’ immediately after booking. Guests arriving with a physical or psycological condition or contraindicator that was not declared in their personal details form may be precluded from parcipitating in the expedition with no recourse for compensation. (Contraindicators can include; obesity, epilepsy, pregnancy, heart conditions etc. . .)

What equipment will I need to bring?2018-12-11T13:57:53+01:00

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 :)

Do I need a wetsuit?2018-11-22T21:39:24+01:00

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.

Excess luggage. Where do I leave it?2018-11-16T17:39:50+01:00

Excess luggage can be left in the locked expedition vehicle at the launch point (at own risk). It is a low population/low crime area and most people do this.

You may also leave any luggage or valuables in a safe room at Gudvangen camping if you prefer.

How long/far will we paddle every day?2019-12-31T13:49:10+01:00

Most days are between 4-6 hours paddling 9-15 Km (More if you want to and Max 8 hours/20 Km). The focus of the trip is to experience this magnificent area at a relaxed and enjoyable pace whilst being present, we do not focus on endurance/distance paddling.

We have almost 20 hours of daylight so we are in no hurry and the pace is steady and relaxed. The Itinerary is flexible according to weather, group interest and opportunities that may arise. Porpoises, photography & filming, waterfall swims etc

What is the accommodation like?2020-05-05T09:02:20+02:00

For the arrival night we will be staying at Gudvangen camping nestled between 1500 meter towering cliffs with a view of the majestic Kjelfoss. You may stay in your expedition tent or in our shared 12 man canvas ‘lavvo’ (traditional Norwegian teepee). It is also possible to rent a small hytte (hut) yourself (if available). Booking of hytter.
For the other nights we will be wild camping or at established camp-sites. Toilet facilities vary from flushing and hot showers to traditional compost and a waterfall wash for the hardy.

These are the views that surround us on arrival day at ‘Gudvangen camping’. we shall BBQ, get to know each other and prepare for our adventure.

What are the conditions like on the fjords?2018-11-22T22:14:28+01:00

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.
