Sea kayaking amongst the big walls..

The big walls which rise over 1000m out of the famous Lysefjord are undeniably impressive. The giants which loom overhead for much of the 42km stretch of Lysefjord include world famous tourist hotspots - Preikestolen and Kjerag. To experience the untouched beauty of Lysefjord from a sea kayak will leave a marked impression and is a fantastic way to experience one of Norway's most spectacular yet accessible fiords.

Why Lysefjord?

New Zealand born Kylie Wakelin spent 5 seasons exploring and working in Norway as a glacier and sea-kayaking guide before founding Bigwall Kayaking, Lysefjord.

Kylie was visiting friends in the Sirdal/Lysefjord region in 2009 when the outdoor enthusiast decided to paddle Lysefjord from Lysebotn to Forsand, and by the end of the 2nd day she stood wet in her kayak clothes to meet with the local authorities in Forsand.

Having 15 years experience running a successful tourist operation in New Zealand Kylie exclaimed 'this place is world class!'. From that moment the idea was hatched to offer visitors to the Lysefjord and Stavanger Region the opportunity to get 'up close and personal' with the beauty and peace of Lysefjord, and the majesty of her huge granite walls.

Experienced Sea Kayak Guides

You would have trouble finding a guide with a greater zest for life and warped sense of humor than Ivi Vaculikova! Ivi has spent years guiding around the icebergs in Mount Cook National Park – New Zealand, and has continued her outdoor guiding experience in Canada and Czech Republic.

Ivi has a special talent of showing paddlers a memorably great time without compromising on her informative commentary and focus on enjoying the serenity of the Fiord.
