Kayak & Hike
Around Stranda we have many old mountainfarms only accessible thru the fjord, either by boat or as we like – by kayak.
We start the day in Stranda were we go thru the safety around the kayaks and how to behave in the water. Our kayaks is stable tandem kayaks that are and good to paddle. We meet up in the small harbour in Stranda and start our trip in the fjord from here. This is the start of what further in will be the Geiranger fjord. We paddle along the steep sides of the fjord shaped by the glaciers during the iceage.
There good chances to get to see parts of the wildlife in the region during this trip, with eagles, porpoise and otters.
When we reach Smogeneset we put the kayaks to shore and change over to hiking boots. From here we follow the old trail up to the mountainfarms of Smoge overlooking Sunnylvsfjorden. This farms have been in use ever since the viking age.
Up at the mountain farm we will enjoy our lunch while the guide tell you all the stories about the mountain farms.
