40th Birthday Surprise in Norway

  A couple looking to visit Norway in May 2018

“I would like to book a weekend trip for me and my husband for his 40th Birthday next year. It will be a complete surprise for him, he enjoys kayaking although I have only ever been once so I'm looking for something that is relatively easy. We both enjoy wilderness camping. I am looking for him to have the opportunity to enjoy amazing scenery and this trip would ideally need to be Friday to Monday.

Hi Alison,

My name is Linda. I am from Norway and have been working and traveling in the country for many years and love helping travelers with customized holiday plans! 
Sounds like you have a great surprise in mind, and I would really like to help you plan it out.

You can do a kayak experience over the weekend. We just had a group that did that. This will be a private tour with a guide. The scenery is beautiful when kayaking on the UNESCO fjord of Nærøyfjord. Amazing!

So, you could arrive on Friday, and take the train to the fjord. Saturday - Sunday you'll be kayaking, returning to Bergen Sunday afternoon in time for a nice dinner out.

An alternative is to do one full day kayaking with a private guide and the next day go hiking.

It is all possible! :-)

Let me know what you think!
