It`s 9:30 pm now, the sun will set i a few hours. But this is a 5-stars living surrounded by flowers. (About the tenting in the green house). We have a great team, we`re having fun.

Pride without annoyance. Enthusiasm without recklessness. These are the the ways I would describe Kjell. I love how much he loves his country and wants to share it with us. I love his energy and passion and commitment to safety first. What we have seen and experienced so far has already been amazing.

The trip has been fabulous, or "brilliant" as Kjell reminds us all of the time. The people on the trip and in Norway have been phenomenal to spend time with. A truly fantastic and unexpected trip of phenomenally beautiful hiking, 300 flights of steps, 24 107 steps, 11.1 miles so far, 2877 calories so far, and immeasurable memories. And in the words of Kjell, our wonderful guide, "some maximally lucky days"

Terry Rockstad


There is reality, there are dreams. There is most importantly happiness. This is a happy group, we had a happy time, good healt and happiness to us all.

From my bottom of my hearth, Kjell was blessing to this trip. Hi did so much for us. Kept us safe, he entertained us with "Kjellissms" og "maximum lucky", " very extra", "now we walt", erc. He showed us some amazing parts of Norway, he introduced us to amazing people, help us overcomes fairs, showed us that we can truly do whatever we set our mind to. Not everyone can do this and inspire people in this way Kjell dit that.

"Breating in, I calm my body, breathing out, I smile. Dwelling in the present moment. I know this is a wonderful moment". For me, this trip has been a beautiful reminder of how precious every moment is. The moments when I feel exhausted, overwhelmed or a little weepy due to having to part from friends we`ve created such strong bonds with, are some of the most important moments of our lives. I will forever take with me the lessons I learned on this trip. I will never forget the bonds I`ve made these 8 days.

We booked a half-day Kayak Tour with Kjell Strand. We were three people and had a very welcome from Kjell at the Tau Ferry Pier. The communication with him was very good and we had no problems. Kjell is a very nice and fun guy and we had a beautiful day at one of the islands in the Stavanger region. He had no prior experience with Kayaking and he explained everything we needed to know about Kayaking. All in all it was one of the most fun we had for months and I would definitely recommend the Kayak Tour to everyone who's interested in Kayaking and having fun!

"A cultural experience with adventure"

Anmeldt av BulletproofBeauty

I think every American on this trip had a special experience to share and to take away from the guides. Personally speaking, the places we went were breathtaking but what made it special for me was the tenderness I felt for the guides. By the end of the trip, I felt as though we were more family than tourists. One of the hardest things I had to do was leave to go home knowing these special souls I've come so close with were 1/2 way around the world. I ❤️ Rogaland Aktiv. If you are looking to really know 🇳🇴 Norway, and the cultural experience... and to know the landscape, look no further than Rogaland Aktiv. Thank you so much Kjell Strand❤️

"Kayak trip with special weather conditions :-)"

Anmeldt av Michael H

We've been in Stavanger beginning of August, summer was anyway not the best and approx. 45 mins before we started our trip it started to pour as crazy. Soaked wet we met Kjell (the owner of the company) and he encouraged us to make the trip to Kalvoy to check the weather over there and decide what to do. Always trust the expert - we had a great afternoon. We were kayaking in a bay at the small island of Kalvoy and also 'touched' the open sea! Kjell took care in a great way of my wife (1st time kayaking), provided us with amazing pictures and to be on the North Sea with the Kayak having this great sky, getting some rain drops made this really to a particular afternoon! Kjell is an awesome guy, great talking to him and you can trust him 'out there'! Thanks for it, again, Kjell, hope to see you again!

"Fantastic day on the water exploring Norway"

Anmeldt av Andy W

A group of Kiwi friends on a long weekend away from the UK, we booked in for a days kayaking with Kjell. We were warmly greeted in Stavanger and taken out to the Rogaland Aktiv base by fast ferry where we were given a hilarious and excellent briefing on the days activities over freshly brewed tea and coffee. Kjell and his other guide, Nina, then kitted is out with gear for the day. All of the drysuits/booties/life jackets were very new and good quality. After a quick home cooked meal (even catering for a couple of the girls allergies) we were on the water. An excellent and yet again very funny safety demo was done followed by practise in the water. Kjell and Nina were very good at growing people's confidence in kayaks! We had a fantastic day out paddling, with great wildlife, conversation and lots of laughs. I would highly recommend booking with Kjell, from beginner to experienced he will cater for all abilities. Thank you Kjell for a great time!

"Wonderful kayaking experience in Stavanger"

Anmeldt av benoitnlaflamme

We spent an unforgettable day kayaking with Kjell around the islands close to Stavanger. He was funny, entertaining and knowledgeable. He welcomed us warmly and kept us smiling the whole day. The weather was beautiful and Kjell made the most of it. This experience exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend Rogaland Aktiv.

"Kajak trip at Kalvoy island"

Anmeldt av marbre65

A highlight during our summer holidays was a kayak tour at Kalvoy. Kjell organised the trip and was our guide. Safely equipped with dry suites we could experience different paddling conditions. We enjoyed it a lot. On open water there was even a seal that was interested in what we were doing. Thanks to Kjell for taking us out to this beautiful place.

"Grunnkurs Hav på Kvaløy"

4 mai 2017 Anmeldt av noreen_11

Ble en perfekt anledning til å delta på Rogaland Aktiv sitt første grunnkurs HAV på Kalvøy. Strålende vær og flott båttur ut til Kalvøy hvor det ble gitt en kort innføring i type utstyr og kajakker. Her kunne vi fått en kort innføring i padle teknikk, hvordan padle til siden etc. Savnet det før vi la ut på vann, hvor man etterhvert forstod hvordan kajakken skulle forflyttes bakover. Etter en herlig lunsj hvor det ble lagt til rette for både vegetarianere og ikke kjøtt spisere startet treningen i vann. Stor pluss for tilrettelegging av maten! Starta med øving på velt som kun ble utført en gang og ikke tilstrekkelig etter min mening. En så grunnleggende ferdighet for å overleve dersom man velter burde det fokusert mer på . For mitt vedkommende foregikk resten av treningen uten å ha på spruttrekket da eg ikke lykkes med å komme løs. Dette ble formidlet neste dag og vi startet dag 2 med å øve på velt for de som var usikre, men også da kun beherskelse en gang som ikke er tilstrekkelig for å føle seg trygg med å ha spruttrekket på. Bortsett fra velt trening så var det et flott kurs i fantastiske omgivelsern:) Kan absolutt anbefale kurs med Rogaland Aktiv hvor man får en flott båttur og lunsj første dagen inkludert og i tillegg låne tørrdrakt, neoprenhansker og hette:) Dette holdt oss tørre og varme selv i kaldt vann :)

"Kayak Kurs"

1 mai 2017 Anmeldt av TamarShar

To dager kurs i liten gruppe (7per.) som holder på den skjønne idyllisk Kvaløy. Faciliteter og utstyr som deltakere får er svært gode og dekker godt det som trenges for å delta på kurset. De tørrdraktene er så gode at det gjør ingenting også om vannets temperatur er ikke mer enn 6-8C.grader. Kurslederen er en trygg, tålmodige og dyktig instraktør som lytter til deltakere ønsker og kommentarer og skaper trygge rammer slik at de teoretiske og praktiske kunnskap er godt lært når kurset avsluttes. Anbefales.

"Kajakkkurs 6/7 mai 2017"

Anmeldt av Elise E

Vi har nettop fullført kajakkkurs over 2 dager. Vi har hatt en fantastisk opplevelse . Ikke bare var vejret strålende og omgivelserne fantastiske men vår gruppe på 8 personer fungerte meget bra. Humøret var på topp. Vi følte oss trygge lærte mye takket været en meget kompetent og svært hyggelig og engasjert kursleder. Kajakkene og utstyret var flott - især var det fint med helt nye og behagelige tørrdrakter . Dette kurs kan sterkt anbefales

"Havkajakk kurs "

6 mai 2017 Anmeldt av Cathrine R

Var så heldig å vinne ett grunnkurs i havkajakk. Var på kurset 29 - 30 April med strålende sol på Kalvøy. For en opplevelse sier bare jeg. Ett utrolig bra kurs, med en instruktør som viste hva han holdt på med. En fikk aldri følelsen av å føle seg redd. Plassen var fantastisk, god stemning og positivt vertskap. Dette er ett kurs som kan anbefales på det sterkeste.

"Great customer service!!!!"

Anmeldt av DogLoverDebbie

Unfortunately, I made a mistake and showed up for our bike tour too late. Even though it was entirely my fault, I was refunded the full of amount of the tour. Great company; I would not hesitate to book with them.

"Vått og deilig"

Anmeldt av mona822017

Vi var 8 damer på reuinonstur til Stavanger. Vi hadde noen fantastiske timer i kajakk og koste oss med masse utfordringer både i og utenfor kajakken. Dette var vått og deilig! Kan anbefales.

"Veldig lærerikt rulleskikurs"

11 mai 2017

Vi hadde en veldig fin opplæring på rulleski hvor vi gikk gjennom bremseteknikk, samt. padling, staking, enkelt- og dobbeltdans. Instruktøren Kjell var flink på å gi oss gode øvelser gi riktige tilbakemeldinger på hvordan vi skulle forbedre oss. Etter endt kurs på 2 timer hadde vi mye større kontroll enn det vi hadde fra før. Takk for en fin tur!
