6/13 – 6/15 Nærøyfjord, Norway

We decided that camping was the best way to experience Norway’s fjords, so we signed up for a 3 day kayaking/hiking trip. We got very lucky with amazing weather, until the last 30 minutes when had some fun fighting waves in the rain. This was definitely one of the highlights of our entire trip.
