There are some places with magical associations and almost mythical character; Norway is one of those places to me. Endless sunlight, cliff-lined fjords, lightning blue rivers flowing from glaciers into the sea, it’s easy to see why. Since I started kayaking I have seen and heard about this Scandinavian kayaking oasis and its unbelievable rivers, but I never thought I would get to paddle here. It is one of the most expensive places to travel, and for a kayaker used to sleeping in the back of a mid-90’s hatchback, this fact was extremely daunting. This is where our friend and favorite Brazilian TV personality, Pedro Oliva, comes in. For the last two years we have been lucky to work with him on a series of shows called KAIAK, and this season we get to showcase the paradisiacal waters of Norway and Greenland.

Already three weeks in, we have paddled some amazing rivers and made a first descent where we thought least likely, in Aurlandfjord, one of the most popular tourist destinations in western Norway. This place is unreal! But tomorrow we leave Oslo for the arctic archipelago of Svalbard to explore the northernmost possibilities of whitewater kayaking.
