Kayak trip to Nordfjord

This kayak trip goes to beautiful Nordfjord in Sørfold municipality. The parking area and start point are located a bit up the river, from here you kayak up as far as possible, before returning down and into the fjord. The return point is below the bridge crossing the fjord, where there is also an old Nazi tunnel you can check out if you feel for a little climb. This is as far north as the Germans got to build their railroad before the war ended. The sea and the river combine pretty far up so the water level in the river depends on the tide, the lower the tide the more current you will get on the way back up to the start point. The distance of this kayak trip ended up at around 11 kilometers, which took 4 hours with calm speed a couple of breaks along the way to stretch the back, having a picnic by the river, and exploring the tunnel. To get up to the tunnel, you have to climb a thin rope, which may or may not even be there anymore. Proceed at your own risk with that
