A kayak or SUP tour down the Sandvikselva gives you a unique opportunity to see the hidden gems, which more often than not are closer to your everyday view than you may think! This particular river tour is more reminiscent of paddling through a semi-tropical jungle than a river in an urban part of Norway.

With ferns and big leafed plants bordering the river, you really feel isolated from the big smoke, and the noises of industry. Let your eyes soak in the vibrant greenery, listen to the birds sing, and feel any tension drift away. We look forward to showing you down this beautiful, calm and green river!

"Great kayak tour down the river into the fjord finishing by the opera house. Fun tour guides. Nice to see the river and the fjord at the same trip."
