Stand up Paddle Boarding Adventures

Once in a lifetime stand up paddle boards adventures in the Norwegian Fjords

A stunning and special journey by stand up paddle board into the remote Norwegian Fjords.


Adventure overview

Living on board the MV Gaasten we will access some of the most remote, unspoilt and simply breathtaking areas of the Norwegian Fjords.  This journey is special, allowing us to cruise amongst majestic peaks and deep into the fjords accessing perfect areas to paddle and experience the wilderness and grandeur by stand up paddle board (SUP).  


Unique Accommodation

Your home for the duration of your Stand up paddle boarding adventure will be aboard our beautifully restored naval vessel Gassten, one of the last wooden Swedish Navy ships ever built.

Converted to a very high standard, the Gassten sleeps 10 in a combination of double and twin berths, all of which served as the original officers’ quarters.

There can be no better way to experience Norway’s stunning coastline, than aboard this unique and elegantly converted wooden naval ship. Come aboard our cruises for a truly superb adventure. Read full details about our beautiful vessel, Gassten.


A chance to share the water with local wildlife such as porpoises and whales.

Incredible scenery

Majestic scenery travelling deep into the Norwegian fjords and UNESCO world heritage sites.

Unique accommodation

The Gassten will be both your accommodation and transport throughout the Fjords. It has been converted to a high standard, including modern conveniences to ensure you are as comfortable as possible during your stay.

Private Chef

On your cruise you will enjoy wonderful freshly prepared food by your onboard chef with an emphasis on fresh local produce. All dietary requirements can be catered for.

Small groups

We like to keep our groups small and matched in ability so guests can experience the adventure together.
