SUP Expedition on the Sognefjord

Some destinations are particularly well adapted to paddling, and Norway is definitely one of them. Suping along the fjords is a magical experience and being hosted by Titus from SUP Norway also plays a great role in an incredible experience.

Severine our cofounder was lucky enough to be invited to join and host an eco-expedition along the Sognefjord, three days departing from Gudvangen, in the heart of Viking land to discover the wonder of Norwegian nature. The expedition was the occasion for Watertrek to try their brand new manta trawl meant to study microplastics, designed and kindly sent over from California by our partners at Plastic Tides. The weather conditions were amazing between that May 25-28th, 2018, offering the most magical show in the form of huge waterfalls and freshwater melting all around. Fortunately they were no plastic waste to be found in those streams. Fjords were a perfect playground though to test our net without meeting too much currents or waves.

Waking up to the sound of a sheep waving his bell to your tent window is somehow surprising, almost as much as Titus serving us a typical nordic breakfast out of the blue in the most spectaclar scenary : shrimps, local caviar, nordic bread under the rising sun.
