The absolute “must do” in Hardanger is to explore the glacier and the fjord and in Jondal you can easily do both with this kayak trip! Duration app. 3-4 hours, the total paddle tour is about 5 km.
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 destination, depending on waves, weather etc. From the fjord, you will have magnificent view of the mountains and the fjord landscape.
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.
