Kayaking on the Lustrafjord in Sogn

Urnes Stave Church by the LustrafjordIt was in the evening of 19th of may, the place was Skjolden in the inner part of the Lustrafjord. Some wind and waves at the start, but soon it was "flat water". The evening was still young, and I just wanted to paddle a short distance to find a place for my tent. But that was difficult, and the time had just passed midnight when I found a suitable place.

 

The fireplace in Kroken
LustrafjordI Passed the Feigum Waterfall in the darkness, and it was in Kroken that I found a suitable "camp". During these three hours I surprised both deer and seal, and I don't know who became most scared of us. The kayak was pulled onshore. Then I made fire and enjoyed a good meal before I went to sleep in my sleepingbag. A tent was not necessary tonight!

Crossing the fjord
LustrafjordenNext day I woke up at 08:30 hrs. A bit cold, but after the breakfast I jumped into the kayak and paddled out of the shadow from the steep mountains. Another day with clear blue sky, an no wind. Started at 10:00 hrs, and crossed the fjord to Marifjøra. Here I surprised two seals, and they followed me several kilometres towards Solvorn. Their heads came up around the kayak now and then.

Urnes Stave Church, UNESCO World HeritageUrnes Stave Church
Just before Solvorn, I
crossed the fjord towards Urnes. Here lies Norways oldest Stave Church, and that was a good excuse to have a break from the paddling. Until now,

Urnes Stave Churchthey believed the church was build between year1150 and 1200, but the latest samples from the wood show that it probably was build 50 to 60 years earlier. Around 13:00 hrs the trip continued, again I crossed the fjord and paddled along the west side of the Lustrafjord.


Brushing my teeth by the waterfall
LustrafjordI passed a waterfall where I brushed my teeth before continuing out the Lustrafjord towards Årdalsfjord and Kaupanger. Here Sognefjord I met many small whales (porpoise), the closest one was probably only 15-20 metres away from the kayak. Luckily, they did not want to play with a small yellow Sea kayak! Just before I came to Mannheller, some seagulls and an eagle had a fight. The eagle probably tried to escape with a fish.

Arriving Kaupanger
KaupangerAt 18:00 hrs I arrived at Kaupanger, tired after 5 hours in the kayak without break. Here I met another kayak enthusiast with a selfmade Greenland kayak. My kayak was left in Kaupanger and I took the bus to Sogndal and further back to Skjolden where I picked up the car.
