What we will do

* We leave the small port of Flåm behind us to reach the Viking village of **Gudvangen**, nestled in the Naerøyfjord and surrounded by a fairy-tale landscape.

* This is where our **kayak adventure** starts. After a brief introduction on how to use kayaks, we jump on board to discover the wild nature of the fjord.

* We paddle for one hour along the coast, admiring the spectacular surroundings, as far as **Bleiklindi**, a small harbour named after a rare sample of wild lime tree which grew directly above the jetty. It is a very peculiar plant as, unlike all other plants, its leaves turn yellow in spring and green in autumn.

* We then reach the small **Holmo peninsula**, where Viking burial grounds dating back to the late Iron Age have been found.

* We disembark here and enjoy a **delicious picnic** in a fairy-tale setting.

* After lunch, we return to our kayaks to head back and admire the **breathtaking views** from a different angle.
