  • Enjoy exercising surrounded by nature


Join me on an awesome three hours of kayaking in the Jotunheimen Mountains in southern Norway. This is an awesome way to learn how to kayak or improve your kayaking skills in a fun, relaxed environment. You also get to enjoy the sights and sounds of these stunning Norweigan mountains.

We’ll start out by going over the basics of kayaking and running you through safety training. We take this really seriously and want to make it the best experience for you.

Then, we’ll take to the water! This will either be on the stunning, turquoise Gjende Lake or the magical Øvre Sjodalsvatnet Lake. Both of these have flat-water so this trip is really great for beginners too.

The great thing about this trip is that we keep the groups nice and small, normally with just five people. This gives me the opportunity to spend time helping everyone out with their technique. I’ll also be able to point different things out to you in the landscape and teach you more about my native Norway.

This is guaranteed to be a cool experience in the beautiful Norweigan Mountains. Get in touch today to save your spot!

If you want to discover Jotunheimen by land too, you should definitely check out my 1-day hiking trip in the area.

Hiking Guide

With Gjende and Jotunheimen right here in my backyard, it's hard not to spend every waking hour outdoors.

Ever since I was a child, I have been drawn to the natural world. Years later, I still find myself standing in awe of the mountains of my native Norway. Regardless of the season, I work and play outside in the beautiful landscapes that surround me.

While I enjoy many outdoor sports and activities, I must say the mountain biking terrain here in Vågå is hard to beat.

I look forward to exploring my backyard with you on your next adventure!

I am very pleased with Explore-Share! This was my first international climb, and the communication and response time were great. Herbie is a very skilled guide and very efficient. The entire booking process & payment was smooth. I will definitely use Explore-Share again. Thank you.



I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
