we (mother and son, 51 and 15) plan a kayak tour in naeröfjorden, auerlandfjorden, sognefjorden and lustrafjorden from gudvangen or flam to Solvorn and back on May 20 to 30 this year. We have a wooden Kayak and a Klepper folding Kayak. We ask for your advice:
-do we need helmets in the fjord because of falling rocks?
-is there a tide?
-is wind a problem for kayaking esp. in the sognefjord ? and, mainly,
-is it possible to go ashore & find place for a small tent at
1.salthella in the naerofjord
2.stokkahamaren or stokko in the aurlandsfjord (near
3.Simleness in the aurlandsfjord
4.Fronningen in the sognefjord or tingastad (north shore
5. Fodness in the sognefjord, at the ligthhouse, or
Aspvikane or °Aretun
We have 1:50 000 maps of the region and dry suits and of course life suits etc.
We are thankfully looking forward to your advice,
Susanne Gandenberger and Tobias Bachem
I'm a little bit confused. I was planning to visit a vicking village in Gudvangen. I remember that I saw a note that it is open until August 15th. fjordnorway.com/en/ATTRACTIO... But today when I decided to look for details I found this information, that it is not constructed yet. http://www.myspace.com/vikingvillage Or are these different places ? Or someone is wrong?
