Aurdalsfjorden (also called Dokka fjord) is a lake in northern Aurdal. The lake is part of the river Begna.
This is a very nice paddle surrounded by steep wooded hillsides on both sides. The water is in places quite narrow, and one should be aware of the flow in terms of returning toward the water current.
This is one of the finest paddling trips in Valdres and you go through Begna nature reserve that was established in 2005.
Places to launch the kayak:
Tip 1: Directly above Aurdal Camping, on a peninsula on the south side of the water.
Tip 2: Picnic at Sundvoll bridge. The distance between picnic and water is fairly short.
An out-and-back route takes you to a certain point, for example the peak of a mountain, before returning to the start along the same trail. Distance and duration calculations are based on the total trip.
A loop route, also known as a circuit, brings you back to the start while avoiding retracing your steps. Distance and duration calculations are based on the total trip.
A point-to-point route takes you from one location to another, without returning to the start. Distance and duration calculations are based on one-way travel.
