Kayak through the serene waters at the end of Hardangerfjord, taking in the spectacular natural beauty from a unique water perspective. After a briefing on how to maximize the experience, you will ease into a kayak and paddle off into the fjord. Few views rival the one that you will have of the soaring mountain plateau that serves as a natural backdrop to the community of Eidjord. The compact community of just 1,000 residents will look even smaller in comparison. You will also have a magnificent view of your cruise ship anchored just offshore. However, beautiful vistas won't be the only attraction as you paddle along at a comfortable pace. You may also catch sight of hikers ascending the mountains and a variety of birds, including long-tailed ducks, kestrels and goldeneyes. If the latter bird is in flight, chances are you will hear its wings making a distinctive whistling, the reason goldeneyes are nicknamed whistlers.
