Fjord kayak normally starts at Folgefonni Breførarlag's office “Juklafjord” in Jondal, but it is also possible to start from Sundal in Mauranger or Rosendal. The absolute “must-do” in Hardanger is to explore the glacier and the fjord and in Jondal you can easily do both! Duration app. 3-4 hours.
Jondal is most famous for the glacier called Folgefonna, but we are also famous for the fjord landscape. The absolute best thing to do in Hardanger is to experience the combination between the glacier and the fjord, the special thing in Jondal is the short distance between these two experiences, you can easily do both things in one day! The best fjord experience is from a cockpit in a sea kayak. You will get the feeling of being a part of the fjord, and it’s impossible to come closer to the water element without being wet.
Daily we arrange sea-kayaking trips on the Hardanger fjord. The trips start from our booking center Juklafjord situated in the middle of Jondal city center, 30 meters from the Hardangerfjord. After an introduction and adjustment of equipment, you are ready for a real fjord experience from the cockpit in a real sea kayak. We start with basic techniques, how to paddle, control the kayak, and what to do if you fail and turn over and become wet. When you feel safe and can control the kayak the guide will start the trip to “Jonaneset” or other destinations, depending on waves, weather, etc. From the fjord, you will have a magnificent view of the mountains and the fjord landscape.
The main season is from 1. June -1. September.
