A day in the nature

Slow adventure along the Norwegian Scenic Route of Gaularfjellet   We will begin with a relaxing cycle tour on roads with little to no traffic, where we will stop near Eikelands waterfall and here we can sit by the falls and enjoy the fresh mist and the sight of the beautiful rainbow in the haze. As we continue on towards the Chapel of Hestad, where we take a short break and jump back to 1,000 years ago and become immersed in the time of the vikings. Back at our base we will use sea kayaks (stable, double kayaks that suit persons of all ages and abilities. No Prior Experience Needed!). We will paddle on Viksdalsvatnet, a pristine lake unspoiled by man with wild forests and small idyllic islands. We carry fishing rods with us as the opportunity for catching fish are ample. While in a calm bay, we will take the opportunity to enjoy our signature “Norwegian Scenic Route” lunch composed of local food products and drinks and packed and prepared by Mjølkerampen at Sande.
